Fellow customisers,

How can i change the category navigation to use images rather than text. I know the page to use but i can't see where to upload images for them.

Thank you

Find the NavigateShowCategoriesStyled subroutine in shopproductsubs.asp and you will find where it generates the links. It's around line 326 for me.

Replace the "name" variable in between the <a> tags with your image. It might be easier saving your images based on the category id, like cat10.gif and cat10_hassub.gif, so it'll be-

if hasSubcategory ="" then
mylink="<a HREF=""shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=" & cid & "&cat=" & Server.URLEncode(name) & addwebsesslink & """><img src=""cat" & cid & ".gif"" alt=""" & name & """></a>"
else
mylink="<a HREF=""shopdisplaycategories.asp?id=" & cid & "&cat=" & Server.URLEncode(name) & addwebsesslink & """><img src=""cat" & cid & "_hassub.gif"" alt=""" & name & """></a>"
end if

Hope that helps...

Excellent..i thought of somethimg similar but then i'll have to make the images everytime which kind of defeated the purpose.

But i'll take yours and just do it.

Thanks

Hi Guys,

This is excellent, however the only problem i'm having with this is the images are outlined as links, i.e. previously visited categories get outlined in purple etc. Any idea how to stop these outlines?

Cheers

Ok, after a bit of fiddling i managed to sort it. If anyones interested this is the slightly modified code that i am using now:

mylink="<a HREF=""shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=" & cid & "&cat=" & Server.URLEncode(name) & addwebsesslink & """><img src=""cat" & cid & ".gif"" border=0" & name & """></a>"
else
mylink="<a HREF=""shopdisplaycategories.asp?id=" & cid & "&cat=" & Server.URLEncode(name) & addwebsesslink & """><img src=""cat" & cid & "_hassub.gif"" border=0" & name & """></a>"
end if

The red code is the key here, personally i didn't need the alt command so i just replaced it with the border=0.

Hope that helps someone out there.
