This is a very useful module from a very kind man! A very simple module that can be tuned with css to style of your theme. A swipe carousel functionality in the future will make this absolutely great!

Christian, thank you for your review.

The translation is done as usual. Translate this caption in "International / Translations / Modify translations". Select "Installed modules translations", the module and the language. Then translate what you need.

In versions PrestaShop 1.6 and 1.7, the number of columns depends on a theme of a site itself. If you need a custom development for your needs, then contact any programmer. This is an OpenSource module available on GitHub.

Big Thanks, exactly what i needed according that i have 24 categories.
The module is working perfectly on PS and category images are showing well on home page.
(the module display them in 3 colones, i would like 4, even 6, why it is not possible?)

Maksim, i have 1 question : is it possible to translate "POPULAR CATEGORIES".
I am French and i would like to show "CATEGORIES POPULAIRES"

Андрей К. 08/28/2021 01:01:44

Thank you very much for latest update. Option to choose size and type of category image is very useful.

Maksim T. 08/26/2021 02:01:36

This night I have released a new version with wanted features!
I have wrote a post about this release:
Thanks to this release, frequently asked questions about the module should disappear ;)

Maksim T. 09/28/2020 11:30:36

You need to improve CSS styles for your version of PrestaShop:

How to change the image size of the category? My images are displaying very small even I attached larger version too. Any suggestions that I can able to tweak in the code?

Maksim T. 07/15/2020 12:04:39

Hello, Mike.
Yes, you need to install a new hook and then to develop the handler for this hook in the module. See the documentation:

Mike S. 07/12/2020 08:22:31

Hello Sir,
is there any way to hook this module to my custom hook and not just home page?

Thank you.

Maksim T. 05/16/2020 14:03:44

There is no a such option in the module settings as you may see on the screenshot of the settings.

Glenn R. 05/15/2020 20:32:00

Hello maksim the module works great thanks, however is there a way to display the different category in by tabs on prestashop 1.7?

Maksim T. 05/10/2020 21:16:52

Hello, Juragan.
This module allows to display categories on a homepage, but not products. You ask about your specifics, for which the module needs to be modified accordingly. If you need free help in programming, then contact a forum and ask. Maybe someone interested can help you for free. I always consider a good idea of a new feature that will be useful to most online stores for development. But I am not sure that your feature may be needed by most.

Juragan P. 05/1/2020 03:25:33

Hello Maksim T. can you help me how to display 6 products on each category? Thanks!

Abdullahn 07/1/2019 23:13:09

Very helpful PrestaShop module!

Hello, Skm.
I found out your problem. Today I accidentally discovered it. From the last release at 2019-02-20, a link was provided for downloading the previous version of the module. No one noticed, and did not tell me about it in these several month ;) Now, the link is updated.

Maksim T. 04/8/2019 17:15:36

Hello, Skm.
Thank you for using this module. Did you installed the latest version of the module (1.5.0)? I just checked again in PrestaShop with default theme - all is working fine. To discuss your problem is better to use the module's topic in the forum.

Skm 04/1/2019 21:25:36

to begin, thx for the free module.
I have this problem: I have installed it (ps version: and I can´t see any image of the category, just a vertical listing with the categories. Am i doing something wrong?

Maksim T. 02/20/2019 17:59:54

Hello, Steve.
The problem with displaying a category image in PrestaShop 1.7.4 and newer was fixed.

Hi, its really cool module!

Maksim T. 10/20/2018 18:17:41

Not, you can't, but it is not needed for new PrestaShop versions.

Monique A. 10/20/2018 00:12:01

Is it possible to change the number of columns and the width of the block in version 1.7?

Maksim T. 10/17/2018 14:17:25

I do not have time for frequent updates. Everybody must understand that I can work on a free module only in my time for rest. So I prioritize. Become the patron to help me work more for supporting and expanding this free module:

Tchoupi 10/17/2018 14:08:27

Hello. Thanks you for this sharing that works!

Steve 09/25/2018 16:27:28

module is working perfectly on PS 1.7.1 however when i upgraded to category images are now showing on home page and displaying image not available.

any advise how to solve this issue.

Maksim T. 07/23/2018 09:00:01

Change hook position. The hook name in PrestaShop 1.6 is displayHomeTab.

Ed K. 07/19/2018 19:50:54

How do i get the catogories link in the left (first place) in the home page tab?

Dave L. 11/30/2016 14:06:52
