I'm currently working on an eCommerce project with categories for products:
- Category 1 - Sub-category 1 - Sub-category 2 - Sub-category 3 - Category 2 - Sub-category 1 - Sub-category 2 - Sub-category 3
What I am hoping to achieve, is to give each top-level category its own entry in Craft, so I can apply my site-wide SEO, matrix content and utility fields.
I am aware you can apply fields to categories, but the whole double-clicking on a category and managing the content from the small modal window approach isn't ideal, especially with category pages that are a bit heavy on the content side.
These categories do have their own URL, and creating an entry with the same slug results in incrementation:
example-category-1, which is to be expected.
Is there any way in Craft I can get round this? I guess if there is no other way I can apply fields to the category, but I wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas.
