I have approx 50 categories in magento. I would like to reorganise them a bit however when i change the order of a category by dragging and dropping it takes magento about 2 mins to complete the process for each one. Is there a quicker way of organising the categories?

Morning David,

This may help, but remember to turn them back on again afterwards.

  • Go to System > Index Management
  • Press “Select All” on the left
  • In the actions Mneu change the index mode to “Manual Update”
  • Press submit
  • Now try moving a category around

That’s me thinking that it’s the save event that is taking ages. So turning off the index save events may speed it up.

But as I mentioned, make sure you change them back to on save afterwards & of course can you let me know if that helps too?

Howdy David,

Oh superb, I had a hunch it was the save events causing the lag.

Just remember to turn them back on again and reindex afterwards.
