categories list code

    mysql_select_db($db_name, $conn); // Change for your database  
    $query_Recordset1 = "SELECT catid,catname,parentid FROM categories ";
    $Recordset1 = mysql_query($query_Recordset1, $conn) or die(mysql_error()); // Change for your database

    while ( $row = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1) )
    $menu_array[$row['catid']] = array('catname' => $row['catname'],'catid' =>         $row['catid'],'parentid' => $row['parentid']);

    //recursive function that prints categories as a nested html unordered list

    function generate_menu($parent)
    $has_childs = false;
    //this prevents printing 'ul' if we don't have subcategories for this category
    global $menu_array;
    //use global array variable instead of a local variable to lower stack memory         requierment
    foreach($menu_array as $key => $value)
    if ($value['parentid'] == $parent) 
    //if this is the first child print '<ul>'                       
    if ($has_childs === false)
    //don't print '<ul>' multiple times                             
    $has_childs = true;
    //echo '<ul>';
    echo '<ul id="categories">';
    echo '<li><a href="categories?catid=' . $value['catid'] . '&parentid=' .                 $value['parentid'] . '&catname=' . $value['catname'] .'">' .         $value['catname'] . '</a>';
    echo '<input type="hidden" value="' . $value['catname'] . '" />';

    //call function again to generate nested list for subcategories belonging to this         category

    echo '</li>';

    if ($has_childs === true) echo '</ul>';
    //generate menu starting with parent categories (that have a 0 parent)
