Hi! I want to remove the category count from the category column. Is there a way to remove this in the admin or do I have to do something with the code?

You will have to alter the core code, this has been asked in another thread as well and we are waiting for for some helpfull replies.

Ok I have solved it.

See here on my development website http://www.laptopmadness.com

How to do it?

Edit this file /catalog/controller/module/catergory.php

Look for

Code: Select all

'name'        => $child['name'] . ' (' . $product_total . ')',
and replace with

Code: Select all

'name'        => $category['name'],
This is in 2 places and each must be replaced.

My file @ /catalog/controller/module/catergory.php only shows that line 1 time, should I edit another category.php file?

That is the file and in V1.5xx it is repeated twice in the code.

This hack only takes out the side catergory count, I am working on the sub cats and the home page menu bar but time is very short at present.

Try just the one line that you see keep a copy of the old one and see what happens!

Could I just ask something here:

I seem to remember that when playing with 1.4x it was possible to leave core files untouched and over-ride them with duplicated/modified files based on a new template.

I too want to remove category counts but I'd like to do it a 'nice' way.

If someone could advise I'd appreciate it.

For the top bar go to

Code: Select all

/catalog/controller/common/header.php
Look for:

Code: Select all

$product_total = $this->model_catalog_product->getTotalProducts($data);
									
$children_data[] = array(
	'name'  => $child['name'] . ' (' . $product_total . ')',
And Replace with:

Code: Select all

									
$children_data[] = array(
	'name'  => $child['name'],

Actually...what about where category counts appear in the page body under 'refine search'? Could someone point me to that module please.

That was covered in the first post by cmaster, if you make sure to do both of those things it should work.

i've done this and it works, but now the header drop down list is some reason not as wide as it should be. anyone know why this might change the size? it's no longer the length of the parent category width

On an update there is a VQMod that does this for you and does not need any code alteration, even if you have partly taken out the code it will take out all product counts, even in subcats.
