In this guide, I will show phpWCMS users how to manage their product categories. This guide will show you how to find your product categories, edit product categories you have already created, and delete product categories you no longer need. Log into your admin panel of phpWCMS and we will get started.
Opening Your Product Categories in phpWCMS
We will begin with opening your product categories in phpWCMS. Click the Module link at the top of your window. Then click the Products link in the left side of the box. Next, click the Categories tab at the top of the box that loaded. Now you can see all of the product categories you have created. Any time you want to work with your categories, this is the page you will need to load.
Editing Your Product Categories in phpWCMS
To edit a category you have already created, follow these steps. Locate the product category and click the Edit icon to the right of it. A box will open on your page and you will see the fields with the information you provided. You can edit these fields and then click the Save and Close button to close it.
If you need to edit sub-categories in your products section, you will need to find the product category and you will see the sub-category below it. Then you can click the Edit icon to the far right of the sub-category to open the category box. From there, you can edit it the same way you did with the above product categories.
Deleting Unwanted Product Categories in phpWCMS
Deleting product categories and sub-categories is pretty easy. You will need to be on the product category page to see the list of categories you have created. Then find the category or sub-category you want to delete and click the trash can icon. The trash can icon is located at the far right of the category name. Confirm that you want to trash the category and it will be removed from your phpWCMS system.
