Categories InfoBox to unsorted list menu and CSS

Update: added additional comments that were missing.

PLEASE NOTE: No responsibility will be taken for any errors that occur during this install. Everything done is completely at YOUR OWN risk! (Seems to be a common theme, so I'll follow suit)

This Download contains the following files:
- catalog/bm_categories_unsorted_lists.css
- catalog/includes/modules/boxes/bm_categories.php

Changes to be done:
1. Copy the above files to the respected osCommerce2.3.x installation
2. Add the following line in: catalog/includes/template_top.php
- after:
- add:
- OR: Copy the css definitions from bm_categories_unsorted_lists.css to stylesheet.css

This modified version of bm_categories.php is commented to explain the workings so you change things, Class and IDs to fit your requirements - if needed.

This modification allow you to modify the look and feel of the categories infoBox, it functional works the same as 2.3 - 2.3.1, it just change the listing from
to and unsorted list menu.

- No flyout stuff or dynamic menus; simplicity is better.

If you'd like to see a example of what can be done with this you can look at www.trainingfx.com click "Online Store" to be redirected to store front at store.averagejoe2pro.com.

Please remember that this is done completely at YOUR OWN risk.

Would be cool if this was rolled into the next dot release of osC 2.3.x, feel free to modify or cleanup the code.

- Kevin
