Category showing products with the same product type?
« on: June 07, 2011, 09:57:59 am »
First of all hi to all!

I am using joomla 1.5.14 and virtuemart 1.1.3. I have products (for example TV's) showing in categories by their brands (Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, etc). I would like to have another category, named TV BY TYPE, where I would have some subcategories: LCD, LED, PLASMA, etc. Like this:

TV
  - BRAND
     - TV BY TYPE
       - LCD
       - LED
       - PLASMA

I was sure this can be done with product type. I assumed I can give some TV's the product type LCD and then just tell the category which product types to show. Do I have to clone every product and put it in a new category also? This will make a lot of work now and a lot of work when changing the prices - for example. Is there any easy solution to this?

YOU CAN assign products to more than 1 category.

Hold down "Control" and then click on as many categories as you want.
