Overview

Back to top

By default, a category in Magento 2 is uniquely identified by its ID. This can lead to some issue because the ID of a category can be different from one environment to another: for example, if the category has been deleted and then recreated, or if several categories have been created by hand but in a different order. The main purpose of the Category Code extension for Magento 2 is to have a unique identifier to manage categories. For that, this extension will add a "code" attribute to categories. Once this attribute has been created, it will be easy for a developer to load a specific category without using its ID or even worse, its name.

In addition, this extension can add a new handle in the category page layout depending on this unique identifier. This should be used to track the design of a specific category in your Version Control System tool (e.g. by modifying an XML file) instead of doing that in the `Layout Update XML` backend field.

Use Cases

Suppose you want to customize a category with a really specific design, and you do not want to depend on the database settings applied to the layout update of this category, you can do that using this extension. Once you have saved the code of the desired category, you will be able to modify its design by playing with an XML file in your theme.
