Select category phpwebcommerce help!

Hi there,I’m new to php…i’m following a tutorial from this site PHP MySQL Shopping Cart Tutorial I just want to learn it & set up a simple store from this tutorial. My problem is, in the admin section when I try to add a new product the combo box doesn’t allow me to select the category. It is listing the category, but it isn’t allowing me to select it, if i cant select the category the whole product page won’t be save.

Below is the code:

	Generate combo box options containing the categories we have.
	if $catId is set then that category is selected
function buildCategoryOptions($catId = 0)
	$sql = "SELECT cat_id, cat_parent_id, cat_name
			FROM tbl_category
			ORDER BY cat_id";
	$result = dbQuery($sql) or die('Cannot get Product. ' . mysql_error());
	$categories = array();
	while($row = dbFetchArray($result)) {
		list($id, $parentId, $name) = $row;
		if ($parentId == 0) {
			// we create a new array for each top level categories
			$categories[$id] = array('name' => $name, 'children' => array());
		} else {
			// the child categories are put int the parent category's array
			$categories[$parentId]['children'][] = array('id' => $id, 'name' => $name);	
	// build combo box options
	$list = '';
	foreach ($categories as $key => $value) {
		$name     = $value['name'];
		$children = $value['children'];
		$list .= "<optgroup label=\\"$name\\">"; 
		foreach ($children as $child) {
			$list .= "<option value=\\"{$child['id']}\\"";
			if ($child['id'] == $catId) {
				$list.= " selected";
			$list .= ">{$child['name']}</option>\\r\
		$list .= "</optgroup>";
	return $list;

Thank you in advance. :slight_smile:
