Thanks for the reply. Probably you use PHP older than 5.6.
See the description requirements.

This is definitely much more simpler than ItemManager and so much easier to understand. Is there a way to filter the catalog by selecting multiple categories? For example if someone wanted a 'White Tshirt', they can select the categories 'white' and 'tshirt'.

Hi,
hmmm... I am not sure I understand what do you mean by "filter the catalog by selecting multiple categories"?
You can already search through different categories. Or do you mean the "tag filtering" feature? The tag-filter function does not allow filtering in different categories, but only, because you're already on a specific category page. Example, if you are on the "t-shirts" category page, so your URL would look like this: http://your-site/catalog/t-shirts/?tag=yourtag. What do you think, how should the URL look like, if you want to filter through multiple categories: http://your-site/catalog/t-shirts/bananas/foo/whatever/bla-bla/?tag=yourtag ? ;-)
That's exactly why the search function is here for.

Oh I see! Ok, forget everything I've said before. I understand it now: you want to narrow your search by selecting one or several specific categories, right?
Unfortunately, that is not possible with build-in methods. Because that is a new feature and each catalog page, has already been assigned a specific function, that is the price that you paid for simplicity ;-)
But of course, since SimpleCatalog is based on ItemManager you are able to create an extra GS page for that purpose, and you will have to use API to write required function. If you have any questions regarding API, just let me know and I will try to help.

No errors and in admin panel everything works.

If you do not see any errors and admin works, then you probably have done something wrong.

Go down this list to check whether you did everything right:
  1. mod_rewrite must be enabled server side and correctly configured
  2. Fancy URLs enabled in GS settings
  3. Check that the "catalog" page you have created has the same slug as the $config->startPageUri variable in plugins/im_simple_catalog/inc/config.php (except slashes)
  4. Check that the "catalog" page contains [[catalog_content]], as page content. Note: the [[catalog_content]] must be entered as page content and not in your template file.
  5. Can you access the "catalog" page in frontend, what is displayed there?

One of the users has the same issue and asked me for a solution. He had modified the original permalink structure to %slug%.html - of course, that cannot work lol. SimpleCatalog requires more complex structure with a minimum of 3 URL sections: /catalog/category-name/item-name/ by default installation. Please read the documentation on my site, in particular the section "Configuration", thats all already written there.

Everything is as u said, and yes i can access catalog page but its still empty page. I have kategories and items also.

It's magic! No, seriously, this is definitely a config issue.

Maybe you have forgotten to add the native GS function "get_page_content()" to your template file?

This works great but I have a small question. How can I change css so the images have some padding between the text? Or is there a particular size image to use?
Thanks

To overwrite catalog styling you just need to add the custom stylesheet after the default catalog "styles.css" inside your template file

Hello there i have a little problem, in item creations if i add multiple images it doesent work, it show only the first image.

I assume you're about to display multiple images in the detail view of the item?

There are several ways to do this.
If you are sure that the same number of images will always be used for each item, you can just create a custom template file with "itemDetailsContent" variable and add somme placeholders at any place in it.
Here is described how to create your own templates: https://ehret-studio.com/lab/simplecatal...templates/

to display thumbnails:
<img src="[[image_s_1]]" alt="">
<img src="[[image_s_2]]" alt="">
...
to display full sized images:
<img src="[[image_1]]" alt="">
<img src="[[image_2]]" alt="">
...

Of course not, because that would mean the plugin must be called "ExtensiveCatalog" instead. But joking aside, that functionality is not built in as default, but because the whole thing is based on the ItemManager framework, with a little effort you can build it on your own
