The e-commerce.

fixed a 'previously declared tep_show_catagory' but..


Recommended Posts

first I had this error:


when I clicked 'view pending order status' link


Fatal error: Cannot redeclare tep_show_category() (previously declared in /includes/header.php:220) in includes/boxes/categories.php on line 13


so then, I fixed it by commenting out:



/* function tep_show_category($counter) {

global $tree, $categories_string, $cPath_array;


for ($i=0; $i<$tree[$counter]['level']; $i++) {

$categories_string .= "  ";



$categories_string .= '<a href="';


if ($tree[$counter]['parent'] == 0) {

$cPath_new = 'cPath=' . $counter;

} else {

$cPath_new = 'cPath=' . $tree[$counter]['path'];



$categories_string .= tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">';


if (isset($cPath_array) && in_array($counter, $cPath_array)) {

$categories_string .= '<b>';



// display category name

$categories_string .= $tree[$counter]['name'];


if (isset($cPath_array) && in_array($counter, $cPath_array)) {

$categories_string .= '</b>';



if (tep_has_category_subcategories($counter)) {

$categories_string .= '->';



$categories_string .= '</a>';


if (SHOW_COUNTS == 'true') {

$products_in_category = tep_count_products_in_category($counter);

if ($products_in_category > 0) {

$categories_string .= ' (' . $products_in_category . ')';




$categories_string .= '<br>';


if ($tree[$counter]['next_id'] != false) {







<!-- categories //-->





Now this is what I get...
