    Default Re: always display subcategories in sidebox

    Before any modification, look up at the admin first.

    In admin => Configuration => My Store

    Code:
    Show Category Counts  	true
    
    Show Category Counts - Admin  	true
    In admin => Configuration => Layout Settings

    Code:
    Categories Separator between links Status  	1
    Categories Separator between the Category Name and Count 	->
    Categories Separator between the Category Name and Sub Categories 	|_ 
    Categories Count Prefix 	 (
    Categories Count Suffix 	)
    Categories SubCategories Indent

    If no problem will submit to the download area later.

    Thanks for the update. Unfortunately I am still having the same problem. I uploaded the new files (overwriting the old ones), turn the module off and then on again and I am getting the same double * as before. I do not see this behavior with the original categories module.


    I've left both the original and the ch_category boxes on if you'd like to see what I see:

    As an update, until I have time to work on this, I've changed the seperator to " " which generates two blank spaces to indent the categories. I'm not overly concerned with getting the "*" to work. I see others are not having the troubles I am facing so perhaps it is just something screwy with my set up.

    I'm willing to try any additional fixes, but don't worry too much about it if others are not having problems.

    The problem is confirmed!

    It need to trace the program and see what happen.

    It is the follow up for a problem for the prevous discussion.

    Works great! Thank you for the update.

    The only thing that could make it better would be if you could 'fix' the issue when category names span two lines. It would be ideal if the category name would line up with the subcategory name rather than with the main category heading. I'm pretty sure this can be done with an html unordered list, but it will require a good bit of modification to the categories template php file. If you 're interested in working on this, I've started a thread here . I've given it a try but I'm by no means anything more than a novice php hacker. I think this would make a nice addition to your great contrib!

    Thanks again for the update!

    Including one setup in admin

    Then enable and config the sort order of => sideboxes/ch_categories.php
    Or
    If you don't like two Categories Sideboxes Co-Existing
    Then Disable / Config the sort order of => sideboxes/categories.php

    Attached is the screen capture of the default display of the un-collapse Ch_Categories Sidebox (only show the upper portion), for your preview and run under v1.3.5.

    very good cood,haha! thanks for seethrou!
