Hi, Is there a script for opencart_v1.5.4.1 soon ? Also will this work on a different theme installed on opencart ?

Kind regards

LA

We have not yet tested it on v1.5.4.1, however the changelog indicates no changes to the affected files, thus should not be any problem. We are working on moving several module over to the new OpenCart platform and will hopefully know for sure in the next few days.

As for custom themes, since each theme is different it is difficult to guarantee that the module will work. However, to account for this as best we could, the module was built to find the most common and generic function within the template structure to hook onto. As long as the custom theme uses the OpenCart method for displaying the menu, then the module will have no problems. Otherwise, just contact us and we will help you modify the file to fit with your custom theme.

We have just submitted a new version (1.5.0) to CodeCanyon and are currently awaiting final approval. This new version has been fully tested and is compatible with OpenCart version 1.5.4.1 and vQmod 2.2.1.

Version 1.5.0 has been released and is available now.

Hi there, just purchased this module, but I cant get it to work, – can I contact you directly? Thanks!

Please contact us directly at support@neezio.com. Thank you.

I purchased this extension and had some problems to set it up, but thanks to the great help of the Neezio team I got it working perfectly and it is a really neat feature – THANK YOU !

We’re so happy we were able to help integrate our module with your custom menu module and get everything up and running! We wish you the best of luck in your venture and are more than happy to be of service any time you need it!

Would it be possible to display the “All Categories” content this module outputs (on the “View All” page in your demo) on the homepage by adding this module to the “Home” layout in the position “Content Top” (for instance)?

Cheers,

Sebastian

This module makes use of a custom MVC structure which at this time would not be able to integrate in the manner in which you suggest. We are however planning an upgrade to the module which would provide the facilities you require, after having now received a few requests for that functionality.

We have just submitted a new version (1.5.0) to CodeCanyon and are currently awaiting final approval. This new version adds the traditional OpenCart module functionality found within the Extensions -> Modules section so that you may now add the All Categories grid to any template page. This includes the Home layout, and any of the others, in either the Content Top or Content Bottom positions.

Version 1.5.0 has been released and is available now.

hi there

is there a way to display all second level sub-categories on one page?

thanks

At this time our module only supports top-level categories. We are working on adding second-level and nth-level support for a future release.

Hi Neezio,

I just purchased and installed this module on an OC (v1.5.4.1) website I am currently working on. It is working perfectly, except for one thing:

The page title is incorrect – e.g. instead of <Store Name> – <Page Title> (View All), I am getting <Store Name> – <Different/Wrong Page Title>

Is there a file I need to edit in order for this to work correctly with 1.5.4.1?

Your earliest reply is appreciated.

Thank you.

Add the following line of code around line 5 to the “allcategories.php” file located in the “catalog/controller/product” folder:

$this->document->setTitle(“Whatever you want the title to be”);

This will allow you to set the title of that page to whatever you would like and should then also follow the OpenCart naming conventions for how that title is displayed in your browser bar.

Hey Neezio,

Thanks for the prompt reply. However, that didn’t work.

I added a title in the controller file, but it is still displaying the wrong title name. I have a category called “Heating” and it keeps using that title instead…

Any ideas?

Oops you are correct. Setting the document title that early in the controller file simply gets overwritten later on in the function by the category functions. To properly set the document title, add the following line:

$this->document->setTitle(“All Categories”);

To the “allcategories.php” file in the “catalog/controller/product” folder around line 166 right before the following line:

$this->response->setOutput($this->render());

This will ensure the document title is set to your specific requirements immediately before rendering the page output.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we will be updating the CodeCanyon file with the hotfix for this shortly when we release our update for 2nd level category support.

Worked perfectly!! Thanks for that.

This is a great module, and a breeze to install – highly recommend!

Awesome, glad that worked! Also, thank you for the kind words :-)

We have just submitted a new version (1.5.0) to CodeCanyon and are currently awaiting final approval. This new version adds the traditional OpenCart module functionality found within the Extensions -> Modules section and the Document Title fix that you helped point out.

Be sure to grab the latest copy from your dashboard as soon as it is available. We’re hoping it will be approved in the next 24-48 hours max.

Mine is working AWESOME! come along and check it out: www.justclickhere.co.za

AWESOME THINGY!

Glad everything is working! We wish you the best of luck in your venture and are more than happy to be of service any time you need it!

Great plug-in! Only when using multiple language only english has a proper categorie title and breadcrumb. Is there a solution for this?

text_sc_all_categories_breadcrumb & text_sc_all_categories_header

http://www.rijstextiles.com/index.php?route=product/allcategories

Hope to hear from you! :)

Hi youridonatz,

This is happening because vQmod is searching for a match to existing lines in the language files in order to piggy back the required snippets for the language used by the module. Because the other languages have different translations from the English definition it is not attaching to those language files properly.

If you could please send us the following files for each language you have installed, we can provide you with an updated vQmod file to support the different languages you wish to maintain on the site.

catalog/language/[german|french|italian|etc]/common/header.php catalog/language/[german|french|italian|etc]/product/category.php

Please send this to dev@neezio.com.

Thank you,

The Neezio Group

Hye,

Great plugin there. How do I change the permalink structure from product/allcategories to something else, like product/collections?

If you have enabled fancy URLs (permalinks) you can add an entry in the “url_alias” table of the database so that the link is accessible via something like “someurl.com/collection” so long as you aren’t using that keyword for another product or category.

This would be done through your hosting control panel, most commonly “phpMyAdmin” tool within cPanel.

The entry in the database would look like this:

Leave the “url_alias_id” field blank, this will be assigned by the database.

Enter “product/allcategories” into the “query” field.

The “keyword” field is whatever you want the fancy name to be. In the example above it turns the old All Categories link into this URL “somedomain.com/all”.

Happy New Year everyone!

Amazing! Good sales for you

Thank you!
