Help creating an extra category system for campaigns
I need to create an extra category system with his own pages on Magento CE. I know each product in Magento can have its own category, however I need a "custom" category, that allows my products to belong to another category, with which I want to be able to create a page. For example:
Category 1: p1, p2, pn
Category 2: p3, p4, pm
Custom category / Campaign: This one can contain p1, p3, p4. So it contains products from different categories
What I want is to be able to create this category so that I can CREATE the "campaign" page and that it contains p1, p3, p4. So every new custom category can have its own page.
Re: Help creating an extra category system for campaigns
I would make the campaign setup as follow.
Create a new category under the main category-system, that you have already built. (Using function add subcategory button).
In the new campaign category, I would choose to this:
Make active = Yes
Show in Menu = No
This way you campagin category would function like a placeholder for the products specified in this campaign, and customers would not be able to navigate your shop and find the category, unless the have a direct link from ex. newsletter.
The place all campaign products in this new category and the build a new CMS page (choose your design layout) and place this code:
