Display categories as thumbnails
Eric & Stefan,
I've searched yet haven't seen this addressed yet.
I can convert site categories to thumbnails on the front page with plugins. How do I convert store categories to thumbnails?
Examples of this are:
You need to add images to your categories (instruction) and then use the Category List module to display the category images anywhere you want to display them.
I have followed this link and set up images and descriptions but these do not display on my home page as a way to navigate to my category.
I would like the images to be shown in boxes similar to those on www.yoga-bliss.co.uk or www.yogamatters.co.uk
I cannot see a way of doing this in the category list
If you add a Category List module to your store's front page Default view and then add the following HTML code to the Category List module, you should have category images appearing:
Thanks for this.
This has worked to put the categories on the front page.
I then click through on a category and because I have copied the same code o=
n to the category default I also get the sub categories come up as pictures w=
hich is what I want.
However unless I have the product module on the page when I then click on a s=
ub category no products come up.
Is there a way for me to remove the products from the sub category page and o=
nly have them showing when you click on the relate sub category?
I presume I need to set up a custom view but do I do this as a category or a=
Also I would like to be able to put boxes round the categories .
Redhotyogastyle.com/store/category/accessories is a good page to view as it s=
hould be clear what I am trying to do. I would like the boxes to be around e=
ach sub category similar to how the related products are displayed but perha=
ps with the title in a box with coloured background.=20
I realise I need some custom code but I have tried a number of options witho=
Thanks for your help
In the view properties, you can choose to not display products from sub-categories if the current category has 0 products in it. If the current category does have products in it, it will always display those products.
