The e-commerce.

Add field "Category description"


Recommended Posts



I am new to osCommerce and started to configure the shop. As we switched from another e-commerce platform to osCommerce, we want to keep some of the old one's feature. Until now everything has worked out fine. But today a problem came up which I couldn't solve.


We want to use category descriptions, so I installed the contribution "category description" which works out fine. Then I installed EP, which was no problem neither. Now I wanted to add the field "category_description" to easypopulate.php, so that the content can be exported to the data base. The main difference is that my variable is in the table "category_description" (named "category_description" as well) and not in "product_description". I read the manuals and searched the forum, but I found only answers for adding a field concerning the product not the category.


May anybody give me a hint how to add the field "category_description"?


You can my easypopulate.php here. But in fact it is the standard configuration.


Thanks for your help!
