Full control of the look of your category pages!

    The module lets you configure the category page html to your liking. It provides an interface for you to enter the specific HTML that you want to use to display the product listing for the category. You create templates which you can then assign to selected categories. The module comes with 4 preinstalled templates but you can add as many as you want. One of the preinstalled template provides for a category display that lets you add all of the listed products to your basket with the click of a single button. Another provides for the display of multiple products in rows across the page instead of vertically. In your templates, you can use tokens to represent the normal Merchant product and category fields. For example, you can use the token %prodname% to represent where you want the product's name to be displayed. Making changes like removing the "buy one now" button is as simple as tweaking the HTML used to display the page. One of the preinstalled templates is identical to the standard Merchant category display and serves as a good starting point for those little tweaks you have always been wanting to make. The module also permits you to copy existing templates when you are creating a new template.

Note about compatibility with other modules: This module totally replaces the portion of the OpenUI (or MMUI if you are using it) that displays the Category page and is not compatible with any other module which modifies the category page unless the developer of that module has specifically made their module compatible. This module provides for an easy-to-use manner for developers to provide tokens that can be used to insert their module's HTML into the pages. And these tokens can be registered in the module's admin interface. All's modules are compatible with this module (ie. there are tokens that can be used to display their information on the category page) or soon will be.

Another note about compatibility: This module is compatible with the OpenUI right out of the box. However, for it to be compatible with the MMUI requires a minor modification to the MMUI file (ie. Go here for instructions on making that modification.

Full control for unique designs 12/06/2005 - by Mike Maddaloni, Dunkirk Systems from
I had a unique design request from a client in how they wished the category page to look. This module allowed me to easily setup and deliver their request. My client is pleased, and I am estatic!
FANTASTIC! 09/27/2005 - by Venus Rising Limited from
The Category Page Templates are the only way to make your Miva store look like a customized high powered site! The only way to take Miva to the next level!Thanks!
What a difference 07/23/2005 - by Jeff Hager from Canton, GA US
The Category Page Template module gives our cart added viability. For any store with a large number of products, scrolling through more than 10 or so products in one category is annoying. Allowing multiple methods to setup each category and product page is extremely powerful.
The Ultimate 07/04/2005 - by Miva Merchant Modules Directory from
For the best combination of features and ease-of-use for end-users, CPT cannot be beat! All the talk about MM5 templates making these types of modules obsolete are ridiculous.
Makes Miva Merchant a viable shopping cart 01/17/2005 - by Chuck Lasker from Westfield, IN US
The standard Miva Merchant layout is fine, but it's missing character. CPT makes it possible to refine your layout to your store's personality in the simplest manner possible - templates. I don't design a store without the whole designer bundle - Category Page Templates, Product Page Templates, Other Page Templates, Storefont Template and Search Manager. Usage is simple enough that I can teach most clients to maintain their sites, and make fairly dramatic changes, on their own. I've tried all the template modules, and these are the best.
