Iterate subcategory thumbs at index template

Hello!

 

I have tried multiple solutions to get the subcategory thumbnails but all failed.

I want to iterate them in my index page NOT in a category page. I think that's the key to my problem.

Getting subcategory names and urls was quite fine but the thumbnail info is not getting there or I dont know how to get it.

Please help if possible, I have tried like 10 or more solutions and getting hopeles and tired Woman Sad

 

My category structure is/will be following

Root category

  Category1

    Subcategory1 - need url, thumbnail img, name

    Subcategory2

    Subcategory3

     ...

   Category2

         Subcategory1

         Subcategory2

          ...

 

Regards,

Kaia

You can try this :

<?php foreach ($this->getCurrentCategory()->getChildrenCategories() as $_subcat): ?>
$_subcat->getThumbnailImageUrl()

OR

$_subcat->getImageUrl();
<?php endforeach; ?>

Re: Iterate subcategory thumbs at index template

Sadly not working, I am currently having this code that gives me all subcategory data except for the the correct thumbnails.

 

<?php $_helper = Mage::helper('catalog/category') ?>
<?php $_categories = $_helper->getStoreCategories() ?>
<?php if (count($_categories) > 0): ?>
    <ul>
        <?php foreach ($_categories as $_category): ?>
            <li>
                <a href="<?php echo $_helper->getCategoryUrl($_category) ?>">
                    <?php echo $_category->getName() ?>
                     <img src="<?php echo Mage::getBaseUrl('media').'catalog/category/'.$_category->getThumbnail()?>" alt="">
                </a>
                <?php $_category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($_category->getId()) ?>
                    <?php $_subcategories = $_category->getChildrenCategories() ?>
                    <?php if (count($_subcategories) > 0): ?>
                    <ul>
                                <?php foreach ($_subcategories as $_subcategory): ?>
                            <li>
                                <a href="<?php echo $_helper->getCategoryUrl($_subcategory) ?>">
                            <?php echo $_subcategory->getName() ?>
                                              <img src="<?php echo Mage::getBaseUrl('media').'catalog/category/'.$_subcategory->getThumbnail()?>" alt="">
                                </a>
                            </li>
                    <?php endforeach; ?>
                    </ul>
            <?php endif; ?>
            </li>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    </ul>
<?php endif; ?>
