Infobox to display product list - some help needed


Recommended Posts

OK, what I'm stuggling to do is to create an infobox that will display a list of products from the category you are in and link to those products.


I've got this far with making the infobox file:


<!-- products //-->




 $info_box_contents = array();

 $info_box_contents[] = array('align' => 'left',

                              'text'  => BOX_HEADING_PRODUCTS


 new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, true, false);


  if ($category_depth !== 'products') {

     $products_string = 'Please select a subcategory.';


else {



 $info_box_contents = array();

 $info_box_contents[] = array('align' => 'left',

                              'text'  => $products_string


 new infoBox($info_box_contents);




<!-- products_eof //-->


Which works as far as it goes - it displays the "Please select a subcategory" text unless you are in the lowest level.


The problem is that I'm stuck on how to create a $products_string containing the names of the products in the category I'm in. I've tried hacking various functions and db queries I've found in other files but with no success. Seems this is beyond my PHP abilities :?


Can anyone help with this or point me in the right direction?
