I would like to know it was possible to duplicate categories with products from one store to another & update it through a cron task ?


This should be rather easy but haven't seen it yet.


Thanks !

Products are shared, not categories. So you'd need to produce and addon to:

1 - define the categories that should be shared

2 - Use the update_product hook to see if a product is in one of those categories.  If a match, then add the code to add the product to the shared objects table.


But do note that it is actually the products that are shared, not the categories.  So a product in category X on one site and category Y on the other will still be in those categories.  Just changes to the underlying product(s) will happen for both sites.
