Re: How can I Create New Label Icon Selected Category

Hi @Jeeva Rathinam,

 

Maybe you can create a module with install scripts to add a new attribute for your category.

If you only need to show as new (or not) you can create a yes/no attribute for categories:

 

$installer = $this;
 
$installer->startSetup();
 
$installer->addAttribute('catalog_category', 'test_yes_no', array(
                        'type'              => 'int',
                        'backend'           => '',
                        'frontend'          => '',
                        'label'             => 'Test Yes/No',
                        'input'             => 'select',
                        'class'             => '',
                        'source'            => 'eav/entity_attribute_source_boolean',
                        'global'            => 1,
                        'visible'           => 1,
                        'required'          => 0,
                        'user_defined'      => 0,
                        'default'           => '',
                        'searchable'        => 0,
                        'filterable'        => 0,
                        'comparable'        => 0,
                        'visible_on_front'  => 0,
                        'unique'            => 0,
                        'position'          => 1,
                    ));
 
$installer->endSetup();

If you need to add different images/icons, maybe you'll need another type of attribute:

 

$installer = $this;
 
$installer->startSetup();
 
$installer->addAttribute('catalog_category', 'test_picture', array(
                        'type'              => 'varchar',
                        'backend'           => 'catalog/category_attribute_backend_image',
                        'frontend'          => '',
                        'label'             => 'Test Picture',
                        'input'             => 'image',
                        'class'             => '',
                        'source'            => '',
                        'global'            => 0,
                        'visible'           => 1,
                        'required'          => 0,
                        'user_defined'      => 0,
                        'default'           => '',
                        'searchable'        => 0,
                        'filterable'        => 0,
                        'comparable'        => 0,
                        'visible_on_front'  => 0,
                        'unique'            => 0,
                        'position'          => 1,
                    ));
 
$installer->endSetup();

Then you'll need to edit the html part of the menu to show your new value with the category name.

With that information you'll be able to add a custom attribute to your categories
