Hi, I need to make a "catalogue" view. It should by a combination of directory view and a category view:
IT will be very nice if directory view can show also items.
Is there any way to get this?

Category 1
Subcategory 1
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3
Subcategory 2
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3

Category 2
Subcategory 1
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3
Subcategory 2
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3

Category 3
Subcategory 1
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3
Subcategory 2
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3

you can do this with directory template (for categorie)
and drag and drop your field in position

Sorry? Directory view does not display any items, only categories:

Category 1
Subcategory 1
ISubcategory 2
Category 2
Subcategory 1
Subcategory 2
Category 3
Subcategory 1
Subcategory 2

And Categories view display like this:

Categories: 1Subcategory1 1Subcategory2 1Subcategory3 2Subcategory1 2Subcategory2 ...
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3

I have no problem to add fields to its positions at my category template.
But I need to display items and categories sorted like in my first post.
The best way will be, if directory view will display also items and not only categories.

Hello.
I have tried to copy some code from category_items.php to default_categories.php, so I have tried to modify directory view to display also items and not only categories.
But I have got many errors and not all of them solved. My PHP knowledge is only basic level.
But I have a question:
Is it possible to insert in each subcategory description some code (load a module maybe) to display items with fields in my template? Because after this, I will use directory view with description enabled and this description will be my items list.
Thank you for your help.

Hello

you can do this with the blog template:

Subcategory 1
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3
Subcategory 2
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3
Subcategory 1
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3
Subcategory 3
Item 1 field1 field 2 field3
Item 2 field1 field 2 field3
Item 3 field1 field 2 field3

1. Select item list ordering to be the ordering number (called "category ordering")
2. use blog template
3. edit the category layout of blog template (inside the "Display parameters" TAB) there are parameters:
-- SET to enable paramerer: (sub) Category block, at (sub-)category start
-- SET to yes "Category title"

Hello
I have no luck to get the display like you wrote (ggppdk). Besides, your display will not exactly meet my needs. Like I wrote in my 1.post, I need to display main categories with the description and their sub categories with items list.
The best way to meet my needs is to use the default template with Table listing and not the blog template and the menu item Directory view and modify this view to display the items list under the sub categories.
But I need someone to make this modifications for me, because i can not do it myself.
I have read some posts, where other people looks for this - to have an option to list also items in the directory view. It will be very nice, if you programmers will add this option to the directory view or create a new "catalogue view".
Thank you for your help.
