  • Resolved elfynity5


    Hi there, thank you so much for Catablog, it is such a great plug in!

    I need to create a vertical menu of the catablog product categories to the left of my products.

    The menu should change depending on which subcategory is being viewed. Is there a code i can use to place a menu like this in catablog?

    This vertical menu should show up on all the catablog pages, except for the ‘single’.

  • ok, here goes, I worked it out!!!!

    So, create a page.

    This is what i put in my page. (the links I still need to add in)

    <a href="#">Short Tops</a>
    <a href="#">Short Dresses</a>
    <a href="#">On Sale</a>
    [catablog category="tops-dresses"]

    Then every product that is in the tops-dresses categories will show up here.

    I’ve got a new problem. I’m trying to change the layout of the products in the default template in the backend. I’m bringing in my own custom css, but realised I have to use some of Catablogs classes so that the lightbox works for the image.

    Thing is that when i start to customize it, i notice that there is this attribute sitting on the description and the title, and i can’t find it in the css files, cos it is not set there! Where is it set and how do i get rid of it?

    .catablog-title {
        margin: 0 0 0 160px !important;

    I know, it looks like it should be in the css, but it is not. It seems to be created dynamically. I did an open search through all of catablog’s files to find ‘160’, and nothing pertaining to this came up ???

    i found this, what does it point to??

    $inline_styles[] = ".catablog-description {margin:0 0 0 {$size1}px; !important}";

    I figured it out. I changed these two lines, 267 and 2268 in catablog/lib/CataBlog.class.php:

    $inline_styles[] = ".catablog-title {margin:0 0 0 {$size1}px !important;}";
    $inline_styles[] = ".catablog-description {margin:0 0 0 {$size1}px; !important}";

    to this:

    $inline_styles[] = ".catablog-title {margin:0;}";
    $inline_styles[] = ".catablog-description {margin:0;}";

    and it removed that horrible 160px that wouldn’t go away.

    I really did try to find it in the Catablog WordPress backend.

    Hi elfynity5, did you solve your own question? Could you post your URL here, I would be interested to see what it looks like now.

    Kind regards

    I check your site and some of your links don’t work very well on Firefox. I am not sure if it is my version of FF or not. But I tried on Google and it works well. I just thought I would let you know.

    Look, I didn’t even want to give anyone the link cos I’m busy developing it right now as i type this and it will only be finished next week.

    I mean developing the website i gave you link for.

    Yes I understand, sorry if I have caused you any problems with my comment.

    If your issue has been resolved could you please close this ticket.

    Kind regards

    It’s ok, it’s just that I am eyeballs deep in coding here with this website and still got a long way to go!

    Yes I understand what you mean. It has happened to me in the past. If you need any advice I have no problem in helping you.

    Kind regards
