To help simplify our data entry process, we're looking for an alternative to assigning any given product to all of the sub-categories it lives in.
Example: for a product that lives in "Home > Main Category > Sub Category 1 > Sub Category 2", we have to check all of the individual categories (main category, sub category 1 and sub category 2) in order for the breadcrumbs to correctly render the product's full path.
Question: Is there any workaround or extension that would allow us to ONLY have to check Sub Category 2 (the lowest category it lives in) and have mage automatically recognize all of the other sub-categories it really lives in?
Here's an example of how we have to select all categories for breadcrumbs to work
Here's what we'd like to do - only needing to select the lowest sub-category "accessories", but still have the breadcrumbs show all of its parents
