I'm just getting to grips with Craft but it seems very flexible. To try it out I have set up a structure to store some sample products. These products have an image, text, tags and belong to a category (E.g cakes). I can sort and output products, display in groups even sort by tag - brilliant.
One thing I struggling with is how assign a image and other fields to the category? So that I can then have a page with a list of categories each with an image and text Or even output a single category that I want to highlight on another page?
Should this be a "parent" entry? If so how do I assign a set of fields to the parent item but not the child?
Possibly I am thinking about approaching this the wrong way and I should create a "types" structure in which the entries have a required field that is the "category" and use this to search for any products of matching category?
Confused - any pointers appreciated.
