Hi,
I have a site that uses similar category names under different top levels.
For example -
One category called - Tanks - with sub cat - top tanks
Another category called - Used Tanks - with sub cat - top tanks

So if there are many of the repeated cat called - top tanks - when adding a new product, how do they know which - top tanks - is the correct one for that category?
Hope that makes sense.
Thanks

Why don't you use different subcat names like used top tanks. Than your problem is gone.

Cheers

Use the hidden config to show the full cat tree

FULL_CATNAME_TREE

It is an option only used in the administration. It allows you to display the full path of the categories in the product. It is a usefull option when there are several categories with the same name.
