Hello,

I have a question. I want to export from my PrestaStoreManager in to my Prestashop. If I export my catogories, its exporting its full path. For example Home | Soccer | Shoes | Adidas. This is how it's also showed in my menu structure in my webshop.

What I want is this : Main menu --> Soccer --> Dropdown menu Shoes --> another tab which is called Adidas for example.

How can I fix this? I think it's a setting in my Shop Manager, but I can't find it.

Please help me.

Regards,Rob

Hello Rob,

Thank you for your question.

You see, the Store Manager retrieves the category tree structure, however the application does not allow to create a drop down at the certain category level.

You should check your website template configuration, as the Store Manager operates with the database only and does not configure the shopping cart files (except product images and cache refresh feature).

Hello Volodymyr,

I just have a look at my structure, but this look all fine. When I imported the structure in my Presta Store Manager it all looks fine to.

But in my exported csv file, the whole structure is "changed" or fully exported, including all the parent categories. In my webshop it is like this: In my products menu i do have for examples shoes --> brand --> type of shoe.

But after exporting it shows up like this: home | shoes --> home | shoes | adidas --> home | shoes | adidas | type of shoe. So in every menu item, the structure is included. Every item has home in it's name for example.

Can't see anything about it in my theme and this is only exporting from my storemanager.

Please help me.

You see the Store Manager exports full category path your product belongs to, for example, 1 product belongs (assigned) to 3 categories at the same time: "Shoes", "Adidas" and "Men's"The Store Manager will export the category tree with each relation like: "Home|Shoes||Home|Adidas||Home|Man's" where single pipe "|" points to the subcategory and double pipe "||" separates the relation between categories.

Thanks for your answer!

But how can I solve this then? Do I have to create the three structure in my webshop, download it to my Store Manager and when I upload/export new products, don't export the categorie name again to the store?

THink this is the only way then isn't it? I can't create the three in the Store Manager and export/upload it?

THanks,
Rob

Hello Rob,

You see, in case you assign the "Category" column, it is required, to keep the entire category structure for the exact item.

In case the product is linked to 3 categories, the record in the .csv will look like this: "Home|Shoes||Home|Adidas||Home|Man's"

And if you delete "Home|Adidas||Home|Man's" and leave just " "Home|Shoes" then 2 relations will be erased and after import the certain item will be assigned to "Shoes" category only.

In order to update some product details like quantity or price, there is no need to assign "Category" column. You can simply assign the identifier (Product Name, Reference or both - the most common ones) and the column with data that should be updated.
That's it.

Hello Volodymyr,

And what if I want to create the structure in my shopmanager offline and then use that structure online?

My structure now is okay, but in the future I will add maybe up to 20 new categories and subcategories, this is much easier when I can do it in the Shopmanager because of the program and user interface itself.

Is there any possibility to do this then? Or just create the whole stucture in my online webshop and edit or add products with the shopmanager?

Thanks and sorry for my many questions...

Rob

Actually you can create the category structure and it will be retrieved at the back-end and front-end of your store.

There is no need to create a category structure in the Store Manger and then export it to the .csv file and import back to the PrestaShop through the back-office as the Store Manager should be connected to your database.

In case you have not configured the database connection yet, you should use the Connection Wizard.
