Does subcategory include its parent


assuming my category tree is the following:

-- A1

---- A1.1
--- A2


when I am assigning an category to a product do I have to assign both parent and subcategories or is the subcategorie ok?


So for example I want my product to be available on categories A1 and A1.1.

Do I have to add my item to categories A1 and A1.1 or is it enough to just add it to A1.1?

Hi @Crtl,


Hi, you can add the prodcut to the subcategory but you'll neeed to set the "Is anchor" option to "Yes" in the parent category.
