New Category not Inheriting Default Category Blocks


Under Blocks, I’ve modified the Category layout with several custom blocks and grids. I assumed that when I create a new category it would inherit the default blocks for Categories but it is not. It is picking up the Default block settings instead.

This does not seem correct. Is this working as designed and if so, can someone tell me how to assign a new category to use the default settings for Categories blocks? I’m using 3.03 Ultimate.


Hello novista,

Thank you for your message.

You are right. If you create a new category and open its page in the storefront, it should use the block layout which is defined in the Categories tab on the Design > Blocks page in your CS-Cart admin panel. If you still experience this problem, it requires examination on your server. Please contact us via Customer Help Desk and provide temporary access to your server by clicking on the Add record link on the Access information page of your Help Desk account so that we could examine the issue.

Thank you.
