listing templates and shop categories

do all the listings within a listing template have to be in the same category? That is a real pain for me as I want to be able to have different items in different categories and sub-categories. I’d pretty much need a listing template for every product. Is this the case? and if so is there a way to change the settings individually after they’re live perhaps?
thanks a lot

Hi hannybobbins!

Your listing templates doesn’t necessarily have to be under one/same category. You may set-up your own categories and sub-categories.

You might want to check out this short video, as you may find it helpful:

If the products won’t display from the root categories to the sub-categories, this could be useful:

Go to Admin -> Catalog -> Manage Categories -> “Select Category” -> Display Settings -> Is Anchor = “Yes”


Admin -> System -> Index Management -> “Select All” -> “Reindex data” -> “Submit”

If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out!
