Categories and sub-categories are used to organize your products within the Destini CMS. Depending on the design of your locator, they may also be displayed on the front-end as well.
Products, sub-categories and categories are related to each other on a one-to-one-to-one basis. In other words, each product can be assigned to only one sub-category, and each sub-category can be assigned to only one category. To allow products to show up in multiple "categories" on the front-end you will need the Tags feature.
Adding, Editing and Deleting
To add a new sub-category or category, do the following:
- Go to the Sub-categories or Categories page in the Products menu and click "Add".
- Name your category, and for sub-categories, assign it to an existing category.
- For some locators, sub-categories or categories are represented on the front-end with images. If so, upload the image here. If you aren't sure if your categories/sub-categories should have images, check existing ones, or contact Support.
To edit a category or sub-category, select it in the main list to open the edit page.
To delete a category or sub-category, click "Delete" from the edit page.
