Zen Cart Show Category Description on the Product Info Page

By default, the zen cart product page contains a lot of information. One piece of information that it does not contain is the category description text. This Easy Help Zen Cart Tutorial will show you how to add some php code to show your category descriptions on the product info pages.

In your favorite plain text editor, open the includes/templates/override/templates/tpl_product_info_display.php file. If there is not already an override of this file, you can create one by copying the includes/templates/template_default/templates/tpl_product_info_display.php to the includes/templates/override/templates/tpl_product_info_display.php.

Find the point in the file where you would like the category descriptions to show, and add this:


<?php echo zen_get_category_description(zen_get_products_category_id((int)$_GET['products_id']), (int)$_SESSION['languages_id']) ?>
