Organizing Categories & Products

Navigate to tab CATALOG > MANAGE CATEGORIES

NEVER DELETE EXISTING CATEGORIES. You can rename them or disable them, but do not delete a predefined category. Categories are drag and drop so you can move them around as necessary.

 

Root Categories:

  • To add new category, select ADD ROOT CATEGORY button on left hand side
  • It will direct you to the general information page after hitting the add button
  • Select a name for the category
  • Set “Is Active” to yes
  • Set “Include in Nav.” to yes
  • Click Save Category

 

Sub Categories:

  • To add new subcategory, first select/highlight the root category you want to use
  • Then select ADD SUBCATEGORY button on left hand side
  • It will direct you to the general information page after hitting the add button
  • Select a name for the category
  • Set “Is Active” to yes
  • Set “Include in Nav.” to yes
  • Click Save Category

 

Adding Products to Categories:

Now for either a root or sub category navigate to CATEGORY PRODUCTS tab. Hit Reset Filter button on the right, this will bring up a list of all products available on the site.

In the blank box under the heading “Name” you are able to search for the products you want included in that category.

Once you have searched for a term, such as ammo, scope or etc. a list will pop up. You will need to check the box next to each product to include it in this category. Once all products have been selected you need to SAVE CATEGORY.

If those products do not show up in that category right away, you will need to refresh the page and clear the cache and or reindex.

 

Navigate to tab SYSTEM > CACHE MANAGEMENT

Hit Select All button on left, then Submit button on right.
