The e-commerce.

Currently selected category


Recommended Posts

Can someone please tell me an easy way to get the currently selected category. I want to assign it to a variable on the index.php page so I can display it in a different location. I was going to write my own query using the cPath in the URL, but it got too complicated for me.


I just want to print the currently selected category on the page somewhere other than the category box.

the id for the current category is stored in $current_category_id

the name will be in $categories['categories_name']


you can test if these are set & display accordingly.
