I may be missing something but I have categories with sub categories in my navigation tree.
When I click on the category it goes to shopdisplayproducts.asp but doesn't show the subcategories there (which I presumed it would)
Is this an easy fix?

Can't see to find it in the manual.
Thanks

I would like to know this also! It's a real pain having an "sither" subs or products display.

There should be ONE with sub-category display followed with products all on the same page.

I've just applied this; it depends which function you use, but if you're using NavigateShowCategorylist in your shoppage_header.htm file and you're on vpasp 6.5, then do this.....

edit shopproductsubs.asp in notepad, and search for:

Sub NavigateShowCategorylist

a few lines below that you'll see this line:

FormatcategoryList categoryid, catdescription, spacing

comment-out that line and add a new one, so that it's like this:

' BYZ: 22-MAR-2008: Changed to use category link for parent categories:
'FormatcategoryList categoryid, catdescription, spacing
FormatcategoryListBYZ categoryid,catdescription,spacing,hassubcategory

then, after the line:
end sub
which is a few lines below that change you just made, add the following new lines:

(NOTE: The forum blanks out html characters, so replace all instances of upper case AMP with an ampersand character (and sign) when you copy/paste the code you see below)....

' BYZ: 22-MAR-2008: New function to use category link for parent categories:
Sub FormatcategoryListBYZ(id, name, spacing,arg_in_hassubcategory)
dim i
If spacing>0 then
for i = 0 to spacing
response.write "AMPnbsp;AMPnbsp;"
next
end if
if (arg_in_hassubcategory<>"" and IsNull(arg_in_hassubcategory)=false) then
response.write "<a href=""shopdisplaycategories.asp?id="
response.write id & "AMPamp;cat="
response.write Server.URLEncode(name)
response.write """>" & name
response.write "</a>" & "<br />" & vbcrlf
else
response.write "<a href=""shopdisplayproducts.asp?id="
response.write id & "AMPamp;cat="
response.write Server.URLEncode(name)
response.write """>" & name
response.write "</a>" & "<br />" & vbcrlf
end if
end sub

But that still has a links on to EITHER shopdisplaycategories.asp OR
shopdisplayproducts.asp

I'm lookin to have the shopdisplayproducts.asp page display sub categories displayed at the top and the products below.

Visitors to a site DO NOT get the two links to MORE categories OR the products in that category. There needs to be JUST ONE page.
