$_category = $this->getCurrentCategory(); always empty - need category title
but the 2coloumns-left.phtml is like a template file for calling other sub-pages.
Do you want to show the category name on a particular page on your site?
Like the Product.List page or the product.view page or some other page?
lefrancaiz your solution doesnt work :( problem: Notice: Use of undefined constant âcatalog - assumed ‘âcatalog’ in /var/www/web9/html/fitnessonlineshop/magento/app/design/frontend/default/modern/template/page/2columns-left.phtml on line 45
thanks for the tipp with view.phtml, but i dont know how this can help me, because i want to set a background image for the outline-creator div and this is created in the 2coloumns-left.phtml and not in the catalog/category/view.phtml or is there another way for my problem?
