shopp('storefront.categories')

Loops through the categories so that a custom layout can be specified for displaying each category within the looping block.

shopp('storefront', 'categories', 'options')

@param string $object the object or object.tag combination, if object.tag is used, the tag parameter can be omitted
@param string $tag the tag, can be hyphenated or not. Prefix with 'get' as shorthand for the return=true option
@param mixed $options associative array, or url-style name=value pairs separated by ampersands (&). Each pair is passed to the theme api tag as an option.
@returns boolean True for each category in Shopp

Used to loop through storefront catalog of categories.

This is similar to “The Loop” structure in WordPress for displaying a custom layout for WordPress posts. Use the Collection Theme API calls inside the loop to display category information specific to the current category of the loop.

Options

Universal Options

All Theme API calls have these options.

  • return: when set to true, 1, or on, this option forces the tag to return the value instead of displaying/echoing the value to the page. Alternatively, prefix the tag parameter with get to get the same effect. All theme api tags that return a boolean value will return by default.
  • echo: when set to false, 0, or off, this option forces the tag to display the value to the page. This is the default for all non-boolean tags.
  • is: when set to true, 1, or on, this option will evaluate the return of the theme api call as a boolean true or false value. See how values are converted to boolean.
