How do I apply multiple product categories/sub-categories to individual products?
I'm a Drupal newbie, and well, overall CMS and web design newbie. I am using Commerce Kickstart and trying to develop a product catalog where much of my individual products should ideally be categorized under several product categories. For example (and i'm really serious):
Product- Njoy Pure Wand
should be found under all these sub-categories of Dildo
Dildo>Stainless Steel>Pure Wand
and also found under several parent categories
Well, you get the point. Additionally, I would like to apply several tags to each product to enable a client to search for products by various attributes such as color, function, material, etc.
Can somebody walk me through this? So far it seems that I can only assign one product category to each product. Thanks!
This is a good walkthrough for allowing multiple categories per product, but can I add that to see your changes on the public facing pages of your site you will probably need to run cron, and if that doesn't work then you might need to re-save your product fields:
– Go to admin/config/search/search_api
– On your Database index, click on edit, and click Fields (and maybe Facets if this doesn't work)
– Scroll to the bottom of the fields page and hit 'Save fields'
following this comments, will totally destroy your whole system.
