Title: Navigation up a category hierarchy
Post by: Tryer on July 23, 2019, 20:49:39 pm
I am using a Joomla 3.9.10 site with PHP 7.2.17 and Virtuemart 3.4.2.

I have two top-level categories. Each one has a number of subcategories containing a number of sub-subcategories which each contain products. So there is a three-level category hierarchy. When viewed in the front-end shop, a product listing displays a "Back to (relevant sub-subcategory)" button at top right of the product area. This takes shoppers conveniently back to a list of the other products in the same sub-subcategory. However, it would be desirable to have a similar "Back to (relevant (sub/category) button at the top of the various levels of category listings to provide shoppers with a similarly convenient route back up the category hierarchy.

Am I missing something in the setup menus that would enable this simple navigation aid?

Not sure Tryer, but if you go to Product Categories, click on a sub-category (blue) name, and then click the 'Virtuemart category view settings' and check out the settings there, you may find an appropriate setting, especially in the 'Template and Layouts' box.
- Just guessing, as there's no working manual.

Why not using the Joomla breadcrumb module ?
