Please help me fix my category title code


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was trying to change some of my code so that instead of "Let's See What We Have Here" or any other message, each category would automatically just have its name as the title/heading. It kind of worked, to an extent, in that now the messages are all different; however, rather than displaying the category name, the category's cPath number is displayed (i.e. the title of the page containing products in the second category is simply "2"). Please help me fix this code or steer me in the right direction to fix this!

 

Thanks,

Erin

BACKUP WHAT YOU HAVE.

 

Both of these changes take place in /index.php

 

Find this code:

 

if ($category_depth == 'nested') {
 $category_query = tep_db_query("select cd.categories_name, c.categories_image from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
 $category = tep_db_fetch_array($category_query);
?>
 <td width="100%" valign="top"><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
  <td><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
	<tr>
	  <td class="pageHeading"><?php echo tep_get_category_name($current_category_id); ?></td>

Replace with:

 

<?php
if ($category_depth == 'nested') {
 $category_query = tep_db_query("select cd.categories_name, c.categories_image from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
 $category = tep_db_fetch_array($category_query);
?>
 <td width="100%" valign="top"><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
  <td><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
	<tr>
	  <td class="pageHeading"><?php echo $category['categories_name']; ?></td>

 

Find this code:

 

<td width="100%" valign="top"><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
 <tr>
<td><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
	<td class="pageHeading"><?php echo HEADING_TITLE; ?></td>
<?php
// optional Product List Filter

Replace with:

 

<td width="100%" valign="top"><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
 <tr>
<td><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
<?php
 $cstr = HEADING_TITLE;
 $cats_array = array();
 tep_get_categories(&$cats_array);
 for ($i=0, $n=sizeof($cats_array); $i<$n; $i++) {
if ( (int)$cats_array[$i]['id'] == (int)$current_category_id ) {
  $cstr =  $cats_array[$i]['text'];
  break;
}
 }
?>
	<td class="pageHeading"><?php echo $cstr; ?></td>
<?php
// optional Product List Filter

Then in /includes/languages/english/index.php change this:

 

  define('HEADING_TITLE', $current_category_id);

Back to

 

  define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Let\'s See What We Have Here');

I've tested this.

 

Using this code it will display either the current category name, or the current sub-category name, whichever is applicable.

 

You should only see "Let's See What We Have Here" if no category or sub-category is selected.

:)

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

I think I made those changes, but now my website isn't coming up, so I must have an error somewhere in the code. I think it is most likely in my /index.php file:

On line 71 you have two of these in a row:

 

<?php
<?php

Then after this line you removed a HUGE chunk of code you weren't supposed to.

 

// optional Product List Filter

Restore your backup and try again.

 

It's not anything in my code that is the problem.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Always do things the simplest way possible, forget making changes in the index.php codebase, there is no need:

 

Change this:

define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Let\'s See What We Have Here');

 

To this:

define('HEADING_TITLE', ucwords(strtolower($categories['categories_name'])));

 

Strangely, I wrote about this very subject today. There is one problem with the above code in THIS post, and I've set a challenge (with a prize, wow!) to see if anyone can find out what that problem is and provide a fix.

Thanks very much to both of you for your help! I seriously envy your knowledge :blush: Germ, your code probably works too (I have yet to see you actually be wrong), but I have had some trouble implementing it. Burt, I tried what you suggested and it worked for me!

 

Thanks again to you both,

Erin

My code works, but burt has definitely has a much easier solution.

 

In the /includes/languages/english/index.php change this:

 

if ( ($category_depth == 'products') || (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id'])) ) {
 define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Let\'s See What We Have Here');

To:

 

if ( ($category_depth == 'products') || (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id'])) ) {
//  define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Let\'s See What We Have Here');
 define('HEADING_TITLE', $categories['categories_name']);

And this:

 

} elseif ($category_depth == 'nested') {
 define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Categories');

To:

 

} elseif ($category_depth == 'nested') {
//  define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Categories');
 define('HEADING_TITLE', $categories['categories_name']);

And it does what you want.

 

burt wins a cookie.

:lol:

The only "problem" I had with the code was that I had a category that started with AAA.

 

Using your code it displayed as Aaa

 

I suppose the fix is in what I posted as it displays correctly.

 

If there's a hard way to do something, I'll usually find it.

Yeah - that was simple formatting I did to a site. Just remove the ucwords and strtoupper

 

But there is a much more serious problem that can manifest itself in some sites that no-one noticed up till now. I'll post back in a bit.

Oh - no-one took up the challenge, so here you are:

 

$category_name = (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id'])) ? $manufacturers['manufacturers_name'] : $categories['categories_name'];
define('HEADING_TITLE', ucwords(strtolower($category_name)));

 

This will show the manufacturers name instead of the category nam when in the manufacturer structure of index.php
