This week we had to create a page in Prestashop (exactly for Prestashop 1.6) with a list of categories, in order to show all first level categories.
Believe it or not, Prestashop does not include this feature to list categories, so we had to code a module for that purpose. The module has been built based on two works we found through Internet:
Now, in order to give back to the community, we offer our work in a direct download link:
I already installed it, how can I see the list of categories?
It’s easy, you should visit this link: http://example.com/index.php?fc=module&module=allcategories&controller=allcategories
Ok, and how could I create a friendly URL?
It’s also very easy, go to “Preferences” / “SEO+URLs” and create a new entry selecting “allcategories” module and controller. In our case, we created the url named “/coleccion”, so the list of categories will be shown in the URL http://example.com/coleccion :
If you have any trouble/doubts or you figure out how to improve the module, let us know via comments in this post 😀
