I have got my category list as going down instead of across (had many subcategories and they were distorting the page).

i would like to swap the link name for the corresponding image. i noticed in the shopdisplaycategories.asp file, the following:

if strSubcategory ="" then
response.write "<a HREF=""shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=" & id & "&cat=" & Server.URLEncode(name) & addwebsesslink & """>" & name & "</a>"

is it possible to change the & name & with
<img border="0" src="[cimageurl]"> or something along those lines

i have got this far in customising it the way i want it, i would like to know if i am heading in the right direction.

Are you using VPASP version 6.0?

By default, category images should be displayed on shopdisplaycategories.asp if you have assigned an image to the catimage field for that category.

If there is an image assigned to catimage, it will be stored in the strcatimage variable in shopdisplay categories.

If you want to modify the code, then you can use the strcatimage variable instead of [cimageurl] as you have shown in your example.

Thank you,
