Make sure you have categories in the left column & inserted the value into the database

You never mention anywhere what value to insert into the database.

 

I've installed and activated the module, but the home page displays:

 

categories

No categories

Right, lets try again. This version should work for 1.3.x versions onwards (tested to 1.4.4 but I don't currently have a 1.3.x install to test on so had to fudge a test on 1.4.4).

 

An interesting exercise :)

Thats probably why the topic title says v1.3 and below.

 

Try reading through the posts and you will find the link to the v1.4 module.

See my site: www.turbosupplycenter.com

I have the categories as buttons in the center. But I just used wcontentmaker module that I found on this forum free. email me if you need it. I used buttons I created in photoshop for each category and then standard html code to layout them in this manner. I just hooked it to the front page home center hook and you can see what turned out. Works great. I even was able to create a hover/change effect. Simple on mouse over code. Please email me if you need the code too. All of my sites are now 1.4.4.1.

 

Thank you, Tina

Hello, I have the latest version of prestashop (1.4.7.3)

I just want to display on homepage all the categories and below each of them a random choose of three products from each category.

Would anybody help me?

Is there any prebuilt module for that?

I can't find!

I was trying out all the modules downloaded from here and tried also the solutions but none of them worked.

I would like to display the categories on the homepage BUT if the category doesn`t have an image uploaded than it shouldnt be displayed. anyone knows a solution?

 

My homecategories.tpl looks like this:

 

 

{if isset($categories) AND $categories}

<div id="homeCatWrapper">

{foreach from=$categories item=category name=homeCategories}

{assign var='categoryLink' value=$link->getcategoryLink($category.id_category, $category.link_rewrite)}

 

<div id="homeCat">

<a href="{$categoryLink}" title="{$category.legend}">

<img src="{$img_cat_dir}{$category.id_category}-category.jpg" alt="{$category.name}" /></a>

<a href="{$categoryLink}" title="{$category.legend}" class="category_image">

</div>

 

{/foreach}

</div>

{else}

<p>{l s='No categories' mod='homecategories'}</p>

{/if}

 

 

Thankx in advance.

Just a thought to activate frontpage categories manually via mysql:

 

First backup your DB then enter the id you used to setup this module in table ps_module ie. (36 homecategories)

now enter this id into ps_hook module id_module then in the next field enter 8 which is the idhook for home then enter 1 for the possition value

 

No idea why your getting hack attempt but the above should work. If not fix this issue before using this module

search for forum maybe someone has the same issue if not go back & see what the developers say.

 

To completely change the subject will RC3 be released in the next few days?
