The e-commerce.

Anyone found a real solution for "drop down" categ


Recommended Posts

Basically want it to function just like the Manufact. menu....Want a simple drop down menu with for example:








Or something of the sort, where the user is then taken to a page that has ALL products from that category.


Tried one of the contributions already but it didn't work...and I don't want it that complex. Very simple...no sub categories, just the basic categories.


I'm not sure if its wise to change the tables in the DB but I may try to make it work the same as the manufact.


Any thoughts?

I need to read the rules more often...

I did this with the manufacture. Since we didn't need manufacture anyway.


I changed the labels

in catalog/includes/languages/english.php


// manufacturers box text in includes/boxes/manufacturers.php

define('BOX_HEADING_MANUFACTURERS', 'Blank Categories');


// manufacturer box text


define('BOX_MANUFACTURER_INFO_HOMEPAGE', '%s Homepage');



Instead of entering the manufatures name I put what it was.

t-shirt, mouse pad, cap ect.


I did not change any of the Db structure

Yeah, you know what...the title of my post got chopped down.


I actually want ot make the Categories come down in a drop down box LIKE the manfact. box.


However the categories seem to be in such a different format, I'm not sure that it is possible.

I need to read the rules more often...
