You can create categories in several ways:
3.1. Category Code: The Category Code uniquely identifies the category in the admin interface.
3.2. Category Name: The Category Name will be displayed in your on-line store.
3.3. Parent Category: If you enter a parent category in this field, the category that you are creating will appear as a child category in your store. For example, if you had already created a category called "Hats" and you are now creating a child category called "Men's Hats", you could enter:
3.4. Alternate Display Page: By default, the content and appearance of all category pages in your on-line store are controlled by the CTGY page in the admin interface ( > User Interface > Pages > Edit CTGY). However, you can create additional category display pages and use a different one for each category. For example, if you sell clothing and DVDs, you might want the clothing category pages to have one format and the DVD category pages to use another.
You can also create multiple product display pages and the steps are nearly identical. See Alternate Display Page for an example of how to create multiple product display pages.
If you don't want the format of this category to be controlled by the CTGY page, enter the name of a different page in this field.
3.5. Active: Check the Active checkbox to have the category appear in your on-line store. You can leave this checkbox unchecked if you want to create the category but not have it appear in your store.
