category name outside the category page
« on: March 24, 2021, 09:38:35 am »
Hi. I've been solving a problem for a long time and I don't know what to do. therefore please help.

I need to display the VM category name in the module.

So I will remove the category page from the code:
Code: [Select]
<?php if (!empty($this->category->category_name)) { ?>
<h1><?php echo vmText::_($this->category->category_name); ?></h1>
<?php ?>

And I have to edit it and display it in my own module. How?

We develop own custom VM Category Header module and add above category view after hidden category name in category view:

Look at this:  - new portal for Joomla!, Virtuemart and other extensions
XML Easy Feeder - feeds from products, orders and database table
Virtuemart Email Manager - customs email templates
