Categories Box - List separation?


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi

Can anyone help please??

 

Is it possible to put a space between each category name in the category box?

If so - how?

It looks very crunched up as it is, would look neater if each line had a space between them.

 

I have tried everything I can think of to no avail.

On line 54 in the Category PHP it has the <br> command but nothing changes by adding another.

Thought this would be simple or am I missing the point?

 

Many thanks for any help in advance for any help.

 

Regards

catalog / includes / boxes is the folder location.

the file you are looking for is categories.php

there is a classes folder there too.

The only 'boxes' folder I have Nic is inside the 'classes' folder. The categories PHP I have inside the the 'boxes' folder I am changing but doesn't alter anything at all, cleaned out the cache etc and done all your suggestions but nothing seems to work.

It should not be there, how modifed is your store?

How do you mean Nic? I haven't deleted anything, just altered different php's to suit but nothing drastic.

the website is at www.homeopharmacy.co.uk if you want to have a look.

All the site works - orders everything, it's just that I fancied spacing the names in the Category box.

Should have stayed contented!! lol

In your Colum_left.php what does it say about your categories box?

thats where the link comes from

Nic

if ((USE_CACHE == 'true') && empty($SID)) {

echo tep_cache_categories_box();

} else {

include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'categories.php');

}

 

//if ((USE_CACHE == 'true') && empty($SID)) //{

// echo tep_cache_manufacturers_box();

//} else {

// include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'manufacturers.php');

// }

 

require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'whats_new.php');

require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'search.php');

require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'information.php');

 

Any help Nic?

Thats right,

It is calling for Categories box at the location

catalog / includes / boxes / categories.php it must be there otherwise you would get an error

In includes you should see folders named

Boxes

Classes

Functions

Languages

Local

Modules

 

You need the Boxes folder

John,

 

This is a fairly straight forward process.

See the Knowledge Base article on how to do this:

Hope this helped you out,

Thanks guys for the advice and help, it is great to know there are folk out there with the knowledge and willing to help. It is Very Very much appreciated.

 

I sorted it last night at 3.15am! :wacko:

 

This is how, JUST in case anyone else comes up with a similar problem.

 

Thought about what Fimble had said about the structure of the folders and how mine are actually constructed. I use DreamWeaver.

Mine were definitely different to what Fimble had said, my 'Box' folder was inside the 'Classes' folder.

So....took a look at what the structure was on my server, low and behold the structure was as Fimble had said it should be. Haven't got any idea how my local folder structure got to be different to that on the server BUT pulled the 'Categories.php down - altered it- put it back up - and guess what - it worked straight away!! lol

 

Have now pulled down the full 'box' folder and have it in it's correct place, so I would say if all else fails- check your server files/folders etc and double check everything is in it's right place.

It cost me 12 hours yesterday to do, what turned out to be, such a simple task in the finish.

 

I couldn't have done that without Fimbles advice, I would never have realised what was wrong, so again, a big Thank You guys.

Kind regards

John

:D
