Checkout: Manage Categories
1. Add New Category
Clicking this button will take you to ‘Save a Category’ where you can create a new product category for your shop. New Categories added will show up on this ‘Manage Categories’ screen after they are added.
2. Bulk Actions
These bulk actions allow you to select multiple Category records from the table using the checkboxes and then apply a bulk action on the selected records. The bulk actions currently available are ‘Delete’ which will permanently remove the selected Category records in the table and ‘Set Parent..’ which will set a Category to as a parent. This is useful if you use sub-categories.
3. Per Page
This is a quick way of choosing how many Categories/records to show per page. The drop down has several values in it to choose from. When the total number of Categories in the database exceeds this per page number chosen, you will notice page numbers appearing above and below the table to the right.
4. Search Categories
Quickly search the database for Categories by typing a word or phrase and then clicking the ‘Search Categories’ button.
5. Category Row Actions
When you hover a Category row, action links will appear below it which are applicable to the row that you are hovering. The links include ‘Edit’ which allows you to edit the Category, ‘Delete’ which will remove the Category permanently and ‘View’ which will show you detailed information of the Category and ‘View on Front’ which will show you how the Category will be seen on the site by the user.
