There are several ways to create new categories.
To create a new Category from the Catalog section, click the Catalog header on the left side of the page, then click the Categories tab.
From there, click the Add Category button in the top right corner.
You can also create a new Category while in the Edit Product page for a specific product. To do so, click the Categories tab in the header. On the page that opens, you can assign the product to an existing category by clicking the Assign slider, or you can click the Add Category button in the top right corner.
In the Details section you will enter:
The Category Title section is optional. It is used only if you want to have a graphic at the top of your category page. You will enter the server file path in the text box for the image you want to use. Or you can click the Upload button to upload an image from your local machine to the server.
The Category Tree section is also optional. It is used only if you want to have a image/graphic in the category tree instead of text. As above, you can enter the server file path in the box for the image you want to use, or upload an image from your local machine to the server.
After filling out the required and desired optional fields, click the Add button in the upper right corner.
Editing existing categories works in much the same way.
To edit a category, click the Categories tab, then click the name of the category you wish to edit.
The page that opens displays the same information as seen above when creating a new category, but also includes tabs for Child Categories, Products, SEO, URIs and Facet Rules. Additional information on all of those tabs is available in other documents within this section.
You can edit the Details section, the Category Title section, the Category Tree section and the Header & Footer section. When finished, click the Update button in the upper right corner.
