Some stores have a large catalog of products. To augment the usability, store owners want to show the subcategories list on a category page. In such cases, this extension helps the admin show subcategory images nicely on the category page. This extension gives flexibility to decide on the number of subcategories to show in a row, which gives more control to admins to display categories of their choice. The extension also aids to grab users attention on your store page (or any other pages) by allowing to show a list of subcategories of a category with images. The admin can also add a category listing using a Magento widget on any store page according to their requirements.

For example, if a category "X" has two subcategories and category "Y" has 5 subcategories then it will be possible to show only 2 subcategory images in a row for category "X", whereas the category "Y" admin can show 5 subcategories in a row. In addition to this, the admin can show subcategories in a grid or list view.

The admin can choose whether to use the same image or a different image to display on the parent category and category description pages.
