Virtuemart related products

Virtuemart related products

I have a problem with related products in virtuemart. I used the code described in this topic.

The problem is that i have 2 level categories. The products are both in 1rst and 2nd level of categories. With this code the related products that are displayed come from the parent category and not from the child. Is there any way that i can change that to show products from the child category (2nd level).

Thanks

Re: Virtuemart related products

Hi Marfil,

I've just been testing this out, and as far as I can see, the VM product list module can only display products from 1 category, and does not provide an option for displaying items from any of its child categories, nor does it allow you to use more than one category.

So it just has to be 1 category at a time.

Maybe that's not what you are asking: perhaps you're saying that when you are viewing items in a child category, it's the parent category that is getting set in MetaMod. If that's the case, then I wonder if the product has been set to more than one category, and MetaMod is choosing the upper level one rather than the child one? Can you confirm that the product you are viewing is in 1 and only 1 category, the child category?

Thanks,
Stephen
