Categories Dressing

Description
This is a mix-and-match group of alterations you can make to the appearance of the standard Zen Cart "Categories" sidebox.
Each alteration can be repeated with different characteristics, or omitted if not wanted.
- You can add dividers and/or non-linked headings in any desired locations.
- You can add images to these headings.
- You can replace any desired category names with image links.
- You can give a desired style to any of these alterations using your stylesheet.

This mod does not provide a specific style, unlike BetterCategories; it simply provides a set of tools to easily give your own style to the Categories box.

Categories Dressing   -   Version: 2.5
Various function improvements;
Categories now structured as ul lists;
Multiple language support built in;
Category active/level control added;
User settings all moved to define file.

# You can group categories under desired headings, and style the groups as separate boxes.
# You can use multiple languages just by adding a new set of images and definitions.
# You can control which categories display, by active cat tree, or by level, hiding top and/or subcats.
# All of these changes are controlled by modifying defines in one language file; no user code changes are required in the template file.

Image file naming system unchanged, so images from previous mod versions will work as-is.
