Hi @justinblayney,

 

Yes, you can display attributes on catgory list page.

You can follow this instuction:

admin->catalog->manage attribute -> select attribute - >property->frontend property-> Used in Product Listing ->change it to yes

 

And, you will see the attribute in list page.

Re: Can I attach an attribute set to a Category?

Hello,

 

Thanks for responsding.

 

This isnt what I asked, I am not asking on how to display the attrbute.

 

I want to apply a certain attribute set to a specific category

 

e.g

 

Category 1: gets Attribute set 1 applied to its products

 

Category 2 gets Attribute set 2 applied to its products, but not atribute set 1

Re: Can I attach an attribute set to a Category?

If you are required certain different attributes for the product, then create a new attributes set and create a product using that attribute sets. It is not required to create a category attribute.

This is not possible (at least not out the box anyway). The reason for it is because when you create a product, if the attribute set was inherited from a category, the product page would not know what to load until the category itself was chosen and fundamentally this is not how products are put together.
