I was just trying to find the thread I made on this topic in the LastDropofInk forums.
Basically eBay give us all your store categories, but they don’t tell us which categories have products in them and which ones don’t. Technically it is possible to work out which categories have products in them, by keeping track of your eBay listings, however that gets deep real fast and causes a massive overhead.
There are two far simpler ways around this:
1. Move the categories into a sub category
The dynamic categories in the eBay listing template builder only show the top level categories in your eBay store. So if you were to move the empty ones into a sub category they would not show.
2. With some CSS (a Style Sheet)
Each one of your categories in the store categories widget have their own unique class, for example your “Vermeil” category has the class “6728147018” applied to it (which is the eBay store category number). So with a little CSS, we can make these hide.
Let’s pick on both that category and the “Tights” category which is 5882254018
If you put this in your listing template anywhere, it will make them hide:
Does that help or have I completely lost you?
Howdy Annette, Debbie,
Phew, you both know CSS, ace!
