Get subcategories


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to customize default-bootstrap and after i've totally hidden left column, i've to show subcategories image with link in place of category image.

I'm editing category.tpl in themes/default-bootstrap after <!-- Category image -->


How can I get subcategories information? I need subcategory id and subcategory name.

Could somebody help me?

I made this lines of code but nothing

{foreach from=$subscategories item=subcategory}
<a href="{$link->getCategoryLink($subcategory.id_category, $subcategory.link_rewrite)|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}"><img src="{$base_dir}icone/{$subcategory.id_category}.jpg" /></a>

ok I solved my problem fixing my lines of codes like this

{foreach from=$subcategories item=subcategory}
	<a href="{$link->getCategoryLink($subcategory.id_category, $subcategory.link_rewrite)|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}">
		<img class="replace-2x" src="{$base_dir}icone/{$subcategory.id_category|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}.jpg" />

I needed this solution because i'll do a multilanguage shop and an orizzontal menù with subcategories icons. Icons have got a watermark on the botton with the name of subcategory so I can't use default subcategory image.
