Manage Categories

 

This page is designed to help you manage your product categories: add, delete, sort, or move them to another category, or edit their attributes. The categories management page is AJAX-based, so you can drag-n-drop categories and subcategories to move them.

How to create, move and delete categories using the AJAX-based interface
 
First, create a new category by clicking the Create Subcategory button. In the Add Category window, enter the name of the new category and save the results. For more details, please refer to the Add Categories link.

The created category will appear in the category tree.

 
Moving categories and changing their order
To move a category, select it and drag-n-drop it using the mouse to a new position between other categories or subcategories. Don't forget to save the results using the Save Changes button, located at the top of the Manage Categories section.

Refer to the screenshots below:
