Can I Add Sub categories

Recommended Posts

Hi Can I add sub categories?

If so how can this be done?

Also I have a lot of categories and sub categories and do not want my front page to go on forever with just a col. on the left side with the categories. Can I add (like ebay) some categories with a link to a all categories page AND list only some of my better selling categories on the front page? Can I break the categories down into cols all the way across the front page, but leave the last col.?

I know alot of ? on one post, but sure would like to get past first base on this. Thanks to all

Yes, you can add subcategories easily in the admin panel. When you are in a category create a new one with the button at the bottom and it will be in that category as a sub.

You can install a Contribution like All Products or Site map (see button at top for Contribs) and then delete the products Infobox from column_left.php

 

This is the code to cut:

  if ((USE_CACHE == 'true') && empty($SID)) {
   echo tep_cache_categories_box();
 } else {
   include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'categories.php');
 }

Just be sure to save backups before mucking around!

Thank you so much, I have already used the sub cats and works fine. I will copy files and start with the other part. Let you know how it comes out, hopefully not a all day job.
