Category Attributes Descriptions

 

Category ID

Category ID (same as subcategory ID) is a unique digital identifier of a product category. This identifier is assigned to a category by the system as a numeric value (e.g. 45). This assigned number uniquely identifies the category among multiple other categories.

Attribute Tag: <?php CategoryID(); ?>

Category Name

Defines the category name. For instance, if your store sells books on e-commerce, you may use 'E-Commerce' as one of the category names.

Attribute Tag: <?php CategoryName(); ?>

A category may be either Online or Offline. If a category is Online, it will display in the Storefront. If a category is Offline, it will not be visible in the Storefront. All of its subcategories - and their products - will also be invisible.
