2 Jshopping Categories with 2 parent Categories(id)

Hello and Congrats for the really nice shop.

I am trying to crate an eshop witch will have 2 main categories:
a) new products
b) Used products

I wish to create 2 menus ( left - right) with new products on the left shopping module and the used products on the right menu module.

I am trying to tamper with the Jshopping Categories module, i can see the functions are on the mod_jshoping_categories\helper.php path but it will take a lot of time to figure what is going on in there for me at least...

Also there is no option to select parent category in the module witch would be really nice!

Any help will be appreciated!
Thank you very much,
Alex.

Hi Sklepas,

I'm not a programmer so I have to look for simple ways to do things! :-)

You can create categories in JS - say two main ones for new and used.

You can then assign a menu item to a category or sub category if you want to. It will then open in the category page that you picked. When you build these categories note their ID number (on the right).

On menu manger, menu type is joomshopping / Categories. In the required settings, pick show 'category or manufacturer' and then you assign the category number in the field.

Do the same for any sub-menu items.

Probably the quickest way to do it if I have understood correctly.

Thanks for the reply, i have already build an eshop like that, but for each new cat you also have to create the new menu link...
Not a big deal for me but for some shop owners it is..

i am also facing the problem bellow:

In the new eshop i have created a main menu
with eshop alias, and show all as an option so, the link when i press this one is "/index.php/eshop", keep this in mind.

When i create the menu items as you suggest, the link is like that "/index.php/menu name" and it should be "/index.php/eshop/menu name"

The jshoping module though displays the links correctly...
Only if it had a parent id option...

I Finally made it, took me almost the hole day!
I hard edited the module and i finally created two modules for each master category i needed!

i had to edit both the functions and the menu ccs of course..
But the taste is sweet :D Yupyyy!!!
