  • My ideal Category/Sub-Cat template...feasible?

    Hi all!

    The current set-up for our website is:

    *Main categories on the left column (ex. Tablecloths, Napkins, Chair Covers).
    *Click on the product line (example: Tablecloths)
    *It now shows the Sub-Categories (ex. Poly Tablecloths, Cotton Tablecloths)
    *You click on the Sub-Category that you want (ex. Poly Tablecloths)
    *Now you choose the 3rd Level (Round, Square, or Rectangle)

    It's a click too many for my liking. What if I could have it like this:

    *Main categories on the left column (ex. Tablecloths, Napkins, Chair Covers).
    *Click on the product line (example: Tablecloths)
    *It now shows the Sub-Categories (ex. Poly Tablecloths, Cotton Tablecloths)
    *You click on the Sub-Category that you want (ex. Poly Tablecloths)
    *Now all sizes are shown right there! (Round, Square, Rectangle), without having to actually click on the "shape".

    How can this be done? I know I could just lump all of the products into the Sub-Cat (Poly Tablecloths) and maybe have it defaulted to "Sort By Name", but I don't know that it would achieve the look that I want. Ideally, it would have breaks between the shapes. So, all ROUND would show, then break with a little space, and all SQUARE would be listed. Break with a little space, and all RECTANGLE would be listed.

    Is it possible?

    Thanks in advance!

    It sounds like its possible.
    I would start by searching for templates that contain the layouts that you are looking for and installing them, look at the code to see what codeblocks are used.

      I do not really see a way to make this work. I spent a few minutes thinking about it when this was first posted.
