Add-On Type(s)

Plugin

Tags

Category URL returns the full URL for one specific category based on it's parent's category_url_title's. Like so: index.php/category_one/category_two/category_three

This plugin returns the full URL for one specific category based on it’s parent’s category_url_title’s. 


EXAMPLE

If you have a category structure like this:

Pants
- Levis
- Wrangler
Shirts
- Fred Perry
- Armani
- - Business
- - Casual
- Ralph Lauren
Shoes
- Adidas

This plugin would output

index.php/pants
index.php/pants/levis
index.php/pants/wrangler
index.php/shirts
index.php/shirts/fred-perry
index.php/shirts/armani
index.php/shirts/armani/business
index.php/shirts/armani/casual
index.php/shirts/ralph-lauren
index.php/shoes
index.php/shoes/adidas


HOW TO USE


{exp:channel:categories channel="foo" style="nested"}

{category_name} URL is: {exp:category_url template="" parent_id="{parent_id}" category_url_title="{category_url_title}" category_id="{category_id}"}

{/exp:channel:categories}

UPDATES

1.1 - Added support for “template” parameter so you can add your template_group AND/OR template as a subpath to your structure. Example: index.php/template_group/template/pants/armari. In this example the template parameter would be: template=“template_group/template”.

This is a great add-on for anyone who requires the category URL’s to be your category_url_title.
It saves a lot of time.
