is it Good practice to list products in more than one place?
So i am listing products by category of manufacture and and then by what they are so for instance say
Nike -Tops -Shorts -Socks -Pants
I am doing it this way currently as i think it is neat and easy to navigate and find via the menu although the site owner has other ideas.
He is suggesting that i do the above but then i ADD a separate section for ALL pants, tops, shorts etc and then any ladies clothing then gets it's own section on top of the previous.
He is kinda old school and it took me a while to convince him to start using magento as a site platform.
Already there are 4 brands added to the site with 6 to 8 sub categories of their own and already it seems a bit "over crowded". Would you say that by adding more categories to the site is a good idea or by keeping them simple like i first said would be better?
I just don't see how having so many different places to add a product can be good practice?
