Hi,

Just wondering if anyone knows how to change how the category pages display on Magento? I want to display a list of subcategories,an associated picture and different background for each. Then in turn apply this to the subcategories if necessary.

Any help welcome!

Hi Alex,

This is a toughie to answer as it can depend upon what your theme does with the categories.

However, go to Catalog > Manage Categories > Select a category and see the Dislay Settings tab and the custom design tabs.

Specifically have a play with the mix of “Display Mode”, a “CMS Block” and also the “Custom Design” as well on the design tab.

Note: You can create your own CMS blocks along the top CMS > Static Blocks > Add New

Hope that helps a little.

Thanks for the suggestions, I’m useless at coding too so got my developer to link the category backgrounds to the Image function on the category page and link the subcategory image to the thumbnail option on the same page – works a treat!
