Display categories' thumbs

Hello, i have a problem using a custom code into skins/basic/customer/views/categories/view.tpl :

<br />
<td align="center" valign="middle" width="{$cell_width}%"><br />
  <a href="{"categories.view?category_id=`$category.category_id`"|fn_url}">{include file="common_templates/image.tpl" show_detailed_link=false object_type="category" images=$category.main_pair no_ids=true class="cm-thumbnails" show_thumbnail="Y" image_width=$settings.Thumbnails.category_lists_thumbnail_width image_height=$settings.Thumbnails.category_lists_thumbnail_height}</a><br />
</td><br />

```<br />
<br />
the displayed image is the no_image.gif and not the category's image!<br />
<br />
It seems like [b]$category.main_pair[/b] is empty!

You have to set up a controller too. There is an addon for this already here on the forum that I even upgraded to 3.0.1.

You can also follow the instructions in the knowledge base. You'll need t tweak the code a bit for your own individual needs, but it should get you started.



Nothing of those really works. Forum is full of reports that addons not working or working accidentally after X hours… or something.

the controller yes! I just forgot this!

So, I know that is wrong but works for me fine.

In controllers/customer/categories.php


fn_gather_additional_products_data($products, array('get_icon' => true, 'get_detailed' => true, 'get_options' => true, 'get_discounts' => true, 'get_features' => false));


//START - Added by me :P
$subcat = $view->get_var('subcategories');
$subcat = fn_get_subcategories($_REQUEST['category_id']);
foreach($subcat as $k => $v) {
$subcat[$k]['main_pair'] = fn_get_image_pairs($v['category_id'], 'category', 'M', true, true);
$view->assign('subcategories', $subcat);
