Apptrian Subcategories Grid / List Extension for Magento allows you to have subcategories in the form of a grid or list on category pages, home page or optionally any other page via xml layout updates or CMS markup tags. Additionally, there are more than several options for customization. Subcategories block is Responsive Web Design (RWD) ready. It will recalculate itself based on the parent.

On category pages, the extension will show children categories of current category. On CMS pages, the extension will show top level categories or any other categories you want. This is done by using the "Category IDs" option in our extension where you type a comma-separated list of category IDs you want to show. You can also show subcategories on CMS pages by typing markup tags inside the CMS page content.

  • Two positions of subcategories block out of the box from Magento config. Any position is possible via xml layout updates or CMS markup tags on any page.
