Overview

Back to top

Apptrian's 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. The 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 the 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 by typing markup tags inside the CMS page content or CMS blocks.

FAQ

Q: How to add subcategories block inside CMS page content or CMS block?

A: To add subcategories block inside any CMS page content or CMS block use Magento tags. Please read our User Guide.

Q: Is it possible to turn off subcategories description text?

A: Yes it is. In our extension configuration for option "Sort Order" instead of "0,1,2" type "0,1" (without double quotes). Do not forget to Refresh your Magento Cache.

Q: Why after uploading the category image I still get a placeholder image?

A: Category model in Magento 2 has only one attribute for image "Category Image". In our extension config for the option "For Image Use" you need to select "Image". We left the option "Thumbnail" just in case the Magento team brings back the category "Thumbnail" in some future version of Magento.

Q: Why after uploading category image for a specific language (store view) I still get placeholder image?

A: You must upload an image to the default scope (All Store Views) First and then if you need an image to be different for a specific language (store view) you upload a different image for that particular language (store view).
