The e-commerce.

cPath and Category URLs


Recommended Posts

A question about cPath and URLs.


I have 7 categories. I would like to put some links directly to each of the category pages from another site, and have been using cPath to do this. For example:




This is the URL for Category 1. But for some whacked out reason the cats and cpaths don't line up:


Cat = cPath


1 = 1

2 = 2

3 = 3

4 = 22

5 = 23

6 = 24

7 = 25



Since I had just edited the defaults from osCommerce, I thought if I deleted all the categories/subcategories and reentered the categories first, that they may line up logically. Unfortunately they do not. The first one I entered ended up being cPath=26!!


Is there a way to RESET the cPaths? Or a better way to get solid Category URLs?


Thanks for any advice,

Don't forget to change the "categories_id" in the "categories_description" table to match that in the "categories" table!


All fixed!
