  • What exactly do you need?

    Can you be more definitive?

    @manush For example, I have different parent categories as “Cook” and “Breakfast”, and a product subcategory “Toaster” that i would have to be under the parent categories “Cook” and “Breakfast”, my question is if there is any way to do it since, by default, you can only add a parent category by subcategory.
    Thanks again!!!

    Btw, this is a complication in defining the products into categories.
    By default, a category-hierarchy is like the branches of a tree.
    The body divides into main braches, the main braches divide into smaller brances, … and fruits are in those smallest branches…

    As you see, one fruit is growing in only one little brach, and a small branch is only connected to a parent branch..

    The basic solution for such divisions is to rename the subcategories acording to that parent category.
    Like in your example, there are “clothing” categorizations having Main/Parent Categories Men/Women and Sub categories as Tshirts/Caps/Bags/Accesories etc..
    So rename those subcategories as Men’s Shirts, Men’s Caps, Men’s Accessories Women’s tshirts, Women’s Bags, …

    In the ecommerce world, there are some turn-arounds to this hierarchy limitations. I mean; you are not limited to use only the “categories” property for such a division, you can use “tags” or “brands”, etc…

    There was a late blog post in the WooThemes site about using tags and categories:

    Ok! Thanks!!!! I’ll try with tags 😉
