OpenCart "Sidebar Subcategories" removes the redundant NavBar categories from sidebar navigation, leaving only the current category and its sub-categories. It also changes the name of the block to something sensible given the scenario.

Once installed, the category block in the sidebar that lists categories will show only the current category with its level-two children, the rest of the categories will disappear.

Save that valuable screen real estate! Why show the same categories down the left side of the page when they're already across the top of the screen, too?!?

Use that space for something important like merchandising or faceted search and layered navigation!

Tested with version 1.5.5.1 - compatibility with default template guaranteed!

OpenCart Extension "Sidebar Subcategories"

Written by: Loop Data, an OpenCart integrator located in Chicago, IL

OpenCart "Sidebar Subcategories" removes the redundant NavBar categories from sidebar navigation, leaving only the current category and its sub-categories. It also changes the name of the block to something sensible given the scenario.

This extension *REQUIRES* vQmod.

To install, simply copy the "sidebar_subcategories.xml" file to the XML directory within your vqmod folder. That's it!

Once installed, the category block in the sidebar that lists categories will show only the current category with its level-two children, the rest of the categories will disappear.

This mod works well with the default theme and any theme not drastically modified. If you've drastically modified your theme, chances are you know how to apply this simple extension yourself. Because of this, not much more will be done to enhance this mod to fit all use cases. We kinda like it the way it is :^)

However, if you find yourself wanting more, please don't hesitate to contact us at [info] -at- [LoopData] -dot- [com] and we'll find a way to help you out.

Happy selling!
