When you click on 'Products' from the main menu of Gnap, you will see four tabs; Products, Variants, Categories and Specifications. Here we describe what you can do under the Categories tab.
Watch the video tutorial below for an instruction.
What are categories?
Categories are groups into which you can organize your products. Each product can be classified into 1 or more Categories (main and/or subcategories). You can do this to make it easier to organize your products so that visitors to your website can search through your products quickly and easily.
For example, if you sell clothing and you want to offer a women's skirt of the brand 'Gebbeding' from the summer collection on your website, you could divide this item of clothing into several Categories, for example:
- Women > Skirts
- Gadget > Summer collection
- Skirts > Must-have
- Brand > Hebbedin
Visitors to your website can then reach your product range in several ways!
Main and sub-categories
Categories have two levels, namely main and subcategories. The main categories have a green background color and the subcategories are right behind the main categories.
When you use a lot of categories, the list can be very long. To get to the right categories quickly, you can type a keyword at the top of the screen, which will filter the list of categories.
You don't add a category here, but when you add or change a product! When you add a product, you can immediately create one or more categories in which the product should be classified.
Rename the category
If you want to change the name of a main or subcategory, click on the name and an input field will appear in which you can change the name. The names of all main categories and the names of subcategories must be unique.
Post/add photo to the category
It is possible and highly recommended to add a photo to both main and subcategories. These will be used on your Ziber website to make the products easier to find. You can add or change a photo by clicking on the white box with the gray cross. You can then choose a photo directly from your own computer. This is then immediately processed and displayed as a small image in the main or subcategory. The images will be used on Ziber websites to guide a visitor to the right products faster.
Change photo at a category
If you want to change an image in a category, click on the relevant image and you can then choose a new image directly from your own computer. The photo is then immediately adjusted and also visible in small format in the main or subcategory.
You can delete categories by clicking on the red icon behind the category name. Deleting a category is permanent and cannot be reversed.
If a category is still active for one of your products, it cannot be deleted. You will then receive a notification that the category is still linked to a product. You can only delete a main category if there are no more subcategories under it.
