Re: category image

If you define an Image Category tree then yes. You can associate any uploaded image with a category. And then use <txp:category_list type="image" /> to show them.

Re: category image

If I needed to generate a list of linked article categories with an image associated with each category, and the client needed to be able to edit, I might try one of these to connect an image to an article category:

  • set up image categories matching the article categories and assign one image to each then call using something like <txp:category_list><txp:permlink><txp:images category="<txp:category />" limit="1"><txp:image /> etc
  • or name an image with the same name as a category and call it up with name="<txp:category />.jpg"
  • or use jcr_image_custom to add an extra field to the image panel, where the client can add the article category id or name.

Or you can create a new image category, say mix_categories, add images there, and then use the name field of the images to link to the categories.

<txp:images category="mix_categories" limit="99" wraptag="div" break="" class="mix_categories">
<a href="<txp:image_info type="name" />"><txp:image /></a>
</txp:images>
