  • Test for products assigned to category

    I need to conditional display a category link depending upon if there are products assigned to the category. I have a few pieces of the puzzle but I'm missing the important one.

    Code:
    <mvt:item name="toolkit" param="sassign|cat_code|cat-code-here" />
    
    <mvt:item name="toolkit" param="what param here for pcount" />
    
    <mvt:if expr="pcount GT 0">
    category link
    <mve:else>
    other  link
    </mvt:if>
    What is the param that I need for the pcount?

    Thanks,
    Leslie

    21. CXP, but it also creates a product array.

      On our PROD page, we create a view all in category button like this:
      <mvt:comment> retrieve the category for this product and create a view all in category link </mvt:comment>
      <mvt:item name="toolkit" param="productincategory|incatcount|g.Product_Code " />
      <mvt:if expr="incatcount GT 0">
      <mvt:foreach iterator="incategory" array="incategories">
      </mvt:foreach>
      <b>
      <a style="text-decoration:none" href="http://&mvt:global:domain:name;/CTGY...ory:code;.html" class="button"><font color=black>&nbsp; View all in Category &nbsp;</font></a>
      </mvt:if>

      Does that help?

        What's wrong with :

        l.settings:product_count (&mvt:product_count;)
        Code:
        <mvt:if expr="l.settings:product_count GT 0">
        We have products
        <mvt:else>
        No we don't
        </mvt:if>

          "What's wrong with"

          Nothing for the current category. My understanding was this was about any/all categories.

          Actually, Toolkit has a way to maintain a category product count via category custom field, then that field can be tested.
