In some cases it is necessary to change default category page view for some categories, that have no products, but have a large structure of subcategories. Our addon do it i a best way - it gives you opportunity to make landings for needed categories to show their structure with images (or icons) and links to subcategories. So.. it will be good for seo and usability of your store.

Addon makes it possible:

  1. To create a special page - All categories - with all categories structure and link to it from breadcrumbs
  2. To create a landing page for any category, that has children categories

All categories page:

  1. On this page - the entire category structure of the store is displayed
  2. This page creates an additional bread crumb (before the category) - it gets a lot of weight and distributes it to all categories of the store
  3. Each category of the first level, you can assign an icon (in the catalog all elements of the first level will be marked with a graphic icon or picture)
  4. In the settings you can set the number of subcategories to be displayed (before the "More" link will appear, by clicking on which the full list of subcategories will be opened)
  5. If the subcategory has child categories, then by clicking on its name, the child structure will be opened
  6. With creating of this page, will be created a separate layout in the system (you can assign meta tags and the title of H1) - promote this page for requests such as "Catalog of refrigerators" - if you have a refrigerator store or "Catalog of mattresses" - for a mattress store) - ie . You received the most relevant page for such a request.

Landing page:

  1. Any category with active checkbox can be converted into the landing page sub-category (product list will be removed, the display of the structure below this category is added with the display of graphic dividers or without them). The purpose of this page is to accept the user from the mid-frequency unspecialized request and process as efficiently as possible, by sending them to the specialized without loss. For example, we get the user with a request "Buy a refrigerator" and send it to "Refrigerators with the system noufrost" or "Refrigerators with two cameras."
  2. When creating a landing for a category page in the settings for each category, you can specify:
  • - Way to display the graphic separator of categories of the second level from the parent (without displaying the image, display the category image above the name, display the graphic icon on the left)
  • - Download icon
  • - Specify the number of subcategories for the open display (if there are more subcategories, the "More" link will be displayed, the click on which will show the entire structure of the subcategories below)


  • Make the most logical structure of subcategories, based on the interests of your target audience.
  • Create landings for category pages that have many child categories.
  • Assign clear icons to categories when creating landing pages (use special services for selecting icons - there are many of them), if there are no icons - use pictures (the functionality of our module allows us to use any of the variants without overturning).
  • Place on the landing pages a unique text (description of the category), section banners, recent reviews or expert recommendations.

And ... these pages will go to the top of the SERP because they will meet Google requirements..

This addon is included in the delivery of the UniTheme template from our team (shipped free of charge among other modules).
