Adding a Category - Team Logic Help System

Adding a Category

Step 1: Create Category

Click on "Add Category" in the store drop down or select "Add Category" from the top of the category page to create a new category.

Step 2: Fill in Category Details

  1. Choose a name for the category. This name will appear in all store navigations.
  2. Choose a parent category for this category. If this is a main category leave the selection as All Categories. If this is a sub-category choose the category you want this category to appear under.

Step 3: Upload a Photo

The category image is used as the category thumbnail and appears next to the category description on the category page.

  1. Choose the photo on your computer you want to upload for the category image.
  2. Add an image caption if applicable
  3. Choose where you want the category image to appear on the category page. You can have it appear on the left or right of the description or not show up at all (it will only be used as the category thumbnail)

Step 4: Create a Custom Page Title

 Each page in your website should have a unique accurate, keyword-rich page title of about 7 words. The page title is what shows up in the search results and is what your potential customers will be clicking on, therefore it should be accurate, concise and category-specific.

Step 5: Create a Custom URL

The custom URL allows you to craft the URL of this page. For example if you were working on a category called Mens Shoes the address of the category could be www.example.com/Mens-Shoes. Creating your own URLs can help visitors navigate your store, clean up site analytics and help your site climb in search result listings.

Step 6: Add a Category Description

The category description is very important for customers navigating your site and search engine ranking. By adding descriptive text on the catgory page you are greatly increasing the SEO value of the page as well as giving your customers more information about the products they are browsing.

The category description is created using the Team-Logic Editor which allows you to add images files and videos to the description.
