My client is setting up a store that has several child categories for products and ran into a road block while trying to add products to the 3rd and 4th level child categories.
From the admin panel under products, he would go to the "Links" tab, click in the "categories" field and type a few letters of the child category for that product. The auto-fill feature is limited by default to (5) items. No mater how he would type the child category name (even the full name) not enough would show to find the one he needed.
* THE FIX*
Browse to the Admin directory: GoTo: admin->controller->catalog and open category.php in your html editor. Scroll down to about line 590 (mine was actually 589) and look for the $filter_data = array(
The last line in that array limits the number of 'catalog/category' (the default is 5). Increase that number to display a larger list of child categories and it's fixed. I changed it to 20 for now, but I have a feeling I may need to go higher than that.
I hope this can help someone else out that's struggling with the same issue.
Maybe you can come in and comment with more experience on the issue here:
Thank you for your cure!!!!
have a virtual beer on me!!
Probably developers blocked it again.
I have tried by adding from 10 to 90
I guess it is a stupid piece of crap. I may have to change the app to something else.
What is the point of putting this kind of bogus stuff out there to waste people time!
admin/controller/catalogue/category.php then find line #596 (or thereabouts - in mine it that line)
'limit' => 0
as per previous comments.
