[SOLVED] Different background for each category


Recommended Posts

Hi!

For my PrestaShop website I want to see a different background for each category that a user visit. What to do?

So:
Category A -> Background 1
Category B -> Background 2
Category C -> Background 3

I was thinking:

create 3 different background with 3 different name as the category name, and using CSS to load backgrounds depending the category that a user visit.

How to print the name of a category that a user visit in the header.tpl file?

Other possibilities?

See the first three code blocks in my post here.
rocky... great!

Some things:

Category A -> Background 1
Category B -> Background 2

But how to see Background 3 when a user visit index, sitemap or others page that are not gategory?

Category A and Category B have subcategory, for now I write in the CSS file all the sub-category ID to match the background of the main category, it is possible to do so automatically? Because if I create an other sub-category of Category A, I must modify global.css file to connect this sub-category to Background 1.

Well... I use in header.tpl the following code

<body {if $page_name}id="{$page_name|escape:'htmlall':'UTF-8'}"{/if}{if $smarty.get.id_category} class="cat{$smarty.get.id_category}"{elseif $default_category} class="cat{$default_category}"{/if}>



It is OK for
Category A -> Background 1
Category B -> Background 2
And all the sub-category of Category A and Category B because I write all in the CSS file.

But how to see Background 3 for all page (like index, sitemap, contact) of the site excluded Category A, Category B and sub-category? I think that I need an other "elseif" in the code but I don't know how.

in your global.css:
"body.cat2", "body.cat3", "body.cat4" etc. will be backgound for categories, "body" will contain backgound image for all other pages (index, cms etc.)

example:

body {
background-color: #000000;
font-size: 11px;
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif;
color: #ffffff;
text-align:center;
background-attachment: fixed;
background-image: url(../img/background-default.jpg);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: center top;
}
body.cat1 {
background-color: #000000; background-image: url(../img/background-cat1.jpg)
}
body.cat2 {
background-color: #000000; background-image: url(../img/background-cat2.jpg)
}

... etc.

Perfect, thanks!

Hi!

 

I would like to do the same, but in my case, I need to modify the name of an id, instead of adding a class.

 

In your code, if the condition verifies, you add 'classid'.

 

But a have a div with the id 'wrapper3', that I would like to show a different background image, depending on the category.

 

Does anybody know how to adapt the code for that?

 

Thanks a lot in advance! :)

Hi - I already have this implemented for Prestashop 1.6. Works great.

Howwever am thinking of changing to Prestashop 1.7 and coding is completely different - does anyone have an update on how to achieve this with Prestashop 1.7?

Thanks

Baz
