We present you a new extension to Multi-Vendor which allows vendors creating their own category trees and assigning products to them. Created category structure is visible for vendors in separate block, independent from main category tree in marketplace. This way, vendor can make custom categorization of their products and allow searching for their products by their own categories.
We start from installing an extension:
In add-on configuration we type name of block, which will display vendor categories, and decide if assigning vendor categories to products is mandatory.
In menu Design -> Layouts, in tab "Vendor store" we have to add block displaying vendor categories. Block should be named as set in add-on configuration, and be configured exactly the same way as standard block displaying categories where vendor has products.
Vendor has access to categories interface in tab Products -> Vendor Categories.
Menu contains standard categories interface, which will only display categories created by vendor. New categories can be added by clicking + in upper right corner.
When adding or editing category, vendor can only type category name and select sub-category (if sub-category is not selected, category is set at first level).
During product edition a field "Vendor categories" is available, in which vendor can assign his categories to product.
In vendor store, additional block displays vendor categories. It works in the same way as standard block - clicking a category displays all products assigned to this category.
