Catalog Links not linking to correct page....

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am having an issue with a site, www.otaeshoes.com .

 

On the site, there is a list of categories. To the right are images of those categories. All the links on the list on the left link correctly to the corresponding item, however, the images on the right are not.

 

For example, if on the site, if you were to click on "Heels" in the list on the left, it would take you to "Heels". No problem. But if you were to click on the image "Heels", it takes you to "index.php", instead of the path for Heels.

 

From looking at the source code, this is how it SHOULD be mapped:

 

SHOES

Heels: Path 1_23

Flats: Path 1_24

Boots: Path 1_25

 

APPAREL

Tops: Path 2_17

 

HANDBAGS

Handbags: Path 3

 

ACCESSORIES

Bracelets: Path 4_20

Earrings: Path 4_21

Necklaces: Path 4_18

Rings: Path 4_19

 

Instead, it's mapped like this:

 

SHOES

Heels: index.php

Flats: Path 1_23

Boots: Path 1_24

 

APPAREL

Tops: index.php

 

HANDBAGS

Handbags: Path 3

 

ACCESSORIES

Bracelets: index.php

Earrings: Path 4_20

Necklaces: Path 4_21

Rings: Path 4_18

 

It seems as though the first image is linking to index.php instead of the correct catalog path, thereby pushing the other categories out of whack? Can anyone over any insight as to how to correct this? I am assuming this has to do with the admin since even after deleting them and re-entering the categories it does the same thing.

 

PLEASE HELP!!

The site is loading fine: [post=http://www.otaeshoes.com ]http://www.otaeshoes.com [/post]

 

Here is the code as it is now, incorrectly. This is just of one of the categories, "Shoes". The other categories mentioned prior are the same, wherein the 'index.php' is linked to each of the first category images:

When you go to the site, initially, a flash splash screen will come up. To enter the store, just click on either the logo or one of the categories. The best way I can explain the problem is by looking at the site and mousing over first the category list on the left to reveal the URL link at the bottom, like so:

No your site does not load correctly. I use Opera and Firefox as my browsers. Both Browsers show only the background image and at the bottom of the page it shows 2 links O'Tae Shoes © 2011 | Web Design By Customations Design Studio

 

If I click on the link to the left it will take me to http://www.otaeshoes.com/catalog/index.php which is a templatemonster template

 

Since it is a template you should ask the template maker

 

Also your product links you posted have the secession ID in the link <a href="http://www.otaeshoes.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=1_23&osCsid=be8951075f08ffdabf026ce245c2500f">Flats</a> and since you don't have any shoes and just bags in your categories I suspect the template maker precoded products to the image.

So are you able to help me resolve this issue? How do I remove the pre-coding? Even though there are no products under the categories, why would the links on the categories take me to other category pages?

 

I don't use Firefox or Opera, I use IE which probably explains why it works fine when I view it.
