About this article
Categories can be created in three levels using the regular tree-structure, like in folders in your operative system. This means that you can create a root category, like for example 'Mens', then nest a category called 'Shirts' inside 'Mens' and the nest a category called 'Button-down' inside 'Shirts'. The customer will in that case be able to drill down you product offering in all the three levels. Each category can hold its specific set of products and products can be added to an unlimited number of categories at the same time. So you can decide if you want to add the button-down shirt in all three levels at the same time or just in the 'Button-down'-category. Clicking Mens or the its subcategory Shirts will not display the button-down shirt.
