Alias for is_catalog_page() Developer API function.


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.

Alternative Forms

    Despite the name, this function returns true on the catalog, category, and product templates. Use is_catalog_frontpage() to check if you’re viewing the catalog.php template.

    To clarify the Shopp catalog consists of categories, smart collections and products, so it is proper to for this function to return true in all of those cases.
