Hi guys,

I create for example 200 categories and subcategories. What I find very impractical and laborious in cscart is when i create a new block I have to disable it for each category where I dont want new block to show (Disable for). I have to mark each of 200 or 300 categories and subcategories :(
Is there a way in cscart to do it same as I can do it like with filters? I mark only categories where I want filter to show.

Thank you

Hello Maky,

Thank you for your message.

In this case you should do the following:

1) In your CS-Cart admin panel, go to Design > Blocks > Categories.
2) Find the created block and deactivate it by switching the trigger.
3) After deactivating it, click on the gear icon of this block to open a window with the block options.
4) In the opened window, go to the Status tab and click on the Add categories link.
5) In the new opened window, select only those categories for which you want this block to be enabled.
6) Click on the Add Categories And Close button and then click the Save button.

Please check it.

Thank you.
