Sub-category to be a link to another sub-category
Is it possible to make a subcategory a link to another subcategory? This is useful when a group of products may be appropriate to be listed under two cetagories. Eg. printer sub-category can appear under Computers category. But printer sub-category may also be appropriate to be listed under, say, Office Supplies. In this case, the printer sub-category under Office Supplies can direct the user to printer sub-categories under Computers category. Any ideas?

Hi Issay,

I'm sorry, but to the best of my knowledge, what you're asking for would require a lot of modifications to codes.

Best I can recommend (apologies if you already know) is to set same subcategory name to your 2 categories, and include both category field in your product descriptions. That way, both categories shares the same product database.

Office Supplies/Printer

(add product AA-XXXX-01)
Main category: Computers/Printer
Category #1: Office Supplies/Printer

Best wishes.

Just set those products to apear in two categories under the category control panel. This is simple.
