This mod adds a thumbnail icons for each category to the categories module in the frontend.

The picture can be configured in the backend.
I only used the thumbnails for those categories that do not have a parent.

This mod requires a field "thumbnail" to be added to the database table categories.

You also should replace the #category definitions in your stylesheet with the following code.

Code: Select all

#category ul {
	margin-top: 0px;
	margin-bottom: 0px;
	margin-left: 2px;
	padding-left: 0px;
	list-style: none;
	xlist-style: url('../image/bullet_1.png');
}

#category > ul li {
	margin: 10px 0;
}

#category ul li a {
	display: block;
	margin: 5px 0 ;		
	height: 20px;
	line-height: 20px;
	text-decoration: none; 
	font-size: 12px;
	font-weight: bold;
}
#category ul li ul{
	margin-top: 0px;
	margin-bottom: 0px;
	margin-left: 8px;
	padding-left: 12px;
	list-style: url('../image/bullet_1.png');
}
#category ul li a:hover {
	text-decoration: underline;	
}

#category ul li a img {
	vertical-align: bottom;
	margin-right: 7px;	
}

#category ul li a b {
	color: #7d3e97;
}

#category ul li ul {
	padding-left: 25px;	
	list-style: url('../image/bullet_1.png');
}

#category ul li ul li a {
	font-weight: normal;
}
