First off, Bought a domain from iPage, but want to keep tripod website.? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. Another question on my mind: I have a category/subcategory structure that is pretty much static (unchanging). However, the products available are dynamic (constantly changing). Is there a way so that a category or subcategory that is currrently empty (no product) can be "hidden" from users but still available in the admin page (so I can add product as needed)? This would save them the minor inconvenience of having to search (fruitlessly) through empty categories, and would save me the major inconvenience of having to delete and recreate categories as my product line changes from day to day..

Please forgive me if this has been discussed. I tried the search, but fear I may not have the right keywords for it..

TIA..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..

Can someone please post a link to this contrib? I have searched for category, categories, activate, deactivate and can't not locate this. TIA...

Another way to do this is to use phpMyAdmin to hide categories. To do this, change the parent id of the category to a non-existent category id (one that was deleted is best, but you can also use a big number like 999999). Then the category won't show up in the categories box. Note: products in that category will still show up in the boxes that do direct product queries, like new products or best sellers..

Hth,.

The easiest thing to do would be to download the contribution that allows you to activate / deactivate categories...
