The e-commerce.

Can someone help me with the 'Main Categories' Contribution?


Recommended Posts

This contribution http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...ions,236/page,3


It hasn't been updated in awhile (November 2002) and it looks like the default.php has changed since he wrote the documentation on how to install it. The problem I have is with step 3:

3. Make the following addition to /catalog/default.php


Find the following:



<td class="main"><br><?php include(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_MAINPAGE); ?></td>



And add this AFTER:



<td><?php include(DIR_WS_MODULES . MAIN_CATEGORIES); ?></td>



The section that it tells me to look for in default.php doesn't seem to exist anymore?


Is there somewhere else I should put that little tidbit of code? Or maybe there is another contribution that serves the same purpose, rather than the front page having the New Product Box, have a browse by category box. I looked around and didn't see anything..

Look for this:


           <td class="main"><?php echo TEXT_MAIN; ?></td>



and put this in afterwards:

	<!-- BOF: Main Categories Edit //-->


           <td><?php include(DIR_WS_MODULES . MAIN_CATEGORIES); ?></td>


   <!-- EOF: //-->


That works for me at least except I get this problem right above the main Categories box:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in c:program filesapache groupapachehtdocscatalog06-15-03includesmodulesmain_categories.php on line 52


This is the code on line 52 onwards:

// Traverse category tree

   foreach ($foo as $key => $value) {

     if ($foo[$key]['parent'] == $cid) {

//        print "$key, $level, $cid, $cpath<br>";

       preorder($key, $level+1, $foo, ($level != 0 ? $cpath . $cid . '_' : ''));




Does anyone know how to fix this?
