A replacement for the categories interface, these replacement brings a number of usability improvements and features.

Firstly, it is quick. This interface is designed to load quickly, be used efficiently and allow you to spend as little time as possible using it to get the edits done you need.

Your main view offers a familiar BC style listing but includes a clearer parent/child relationship as well as offering the category ID right in the view allowing developers to easily grab the ID’s.

The search is offers a quick response to offer results for catalogues matching what you type.

You can easily import AND export categories using a simple and intuitive spreadsheet format and deleting multiple categories is made more easily with the selection and delete button similar to other parts of the BC admin.

In the add and edit interface for Categories the item it is also clearly presented and information easily edited. To select the parent category it is very easy through a dropdown and type search feature to make this very easy to do.

Important notes:

  • Liquid markup is required to be enabled
  • This uses the V2 API.
  • The Import / Export spreadsheet uses its own format and can not be used in conjunction with the BC one.
  • BC only supports 3 levels of categories
  • This app only supports a maximum of 500 items per tree level.
  • In parts of BC documentation and features categories are also known as “Classifications”

We are working on an issue with comments. Comments will be back soon.
