questions about products

Post by sirick » 25 Feb 2024, 13:45

Aimeos: Latest all packages included (aimeos-laravel)
PHP: 8.2.1
Env: Linux, Debian

Hello,
I am a developer, creating a marketplace for a client that bought aimeos with all extensions. I am going to import products through API calls from other marketplaces and i have some questions regarding the products.
  • First of all, why do you have to assign each category to a product? Wouldn't it be easier to assing only the child category so the products shows up to the parent categories too?
  • How can I add characteristics as information only and not something a user should select. Just in the description?

This can be configured using:

Only downside is that you don't have control over the position of the products in the list if they share the same position value.

If you don't want to add that information as text, you can add it as attribute (characteristcs) but then you have to define in the configuration which attribute types should be shown in the filter only:
