Category Management

You can have many (unlimited) categories in RD-Autos, the only limitation is your server! From the Control Panel you're able to navigate directly to the category manager, you will be redirected to this page when hitting the icon in the Control Panel.

With the "Menu" icons on the left side you're able to drag and drop the new ordering, just click, hold the mouse button and swipe the category up or down to order the list. On the right side you have the state of the category (on/off or in Joomla speaking published or unpublished)

On top of the webpage you will have the toolbar to perform the desired action; (New/Edit/Publish/Unpublish/Delete). By clicking the name of the category you will be redirectd to the edit screen of the category you just clicked.

Add/Edit a Category

For now we just click the Peugeot category as we want to edit this one :)

category edit

Category Name:
This will the name which is visible on your website when you're in the category overview. You can choose the name yourself, depends on your needs in the website. IN this case we called it Peugeot Vehicles, calling it "Vans" or "Pickup Trucks" are also options.

Category Alias:
This lowercase words are taken from the category name if you don't fill out this part of the form. The alias must be lowercase and doesn't contain any special characters, or spaces. When you use them we will remove them an/or replace them with a proper alias. It is being used in the URL when clicking on a category link in the frontend.

Category Type:
You can choose between "Vehicles" and "Parts", when you want a category with vehicles, you need to set this parameter to "Vehicles". When adding a vehicle later on this category will be one of the choices.

Publishing State:
Is the category visible in the frontend or not.

Category Image:
Upload an image for this category. Resizing is not that important for categories. So we will only sample it down with 100% quality.

Metatags & Meta Descriptions.
Metadata is data (information) about data. The <meta> tag provides metadata about the HTML document. Metadata will not be displayed on the page, but will be machine parsable. Meta elements are typically used to specify page description, keywords, author of the document, last modified, and other metadata.
The metadata can be used by browsers (how to display content or reload page), search engines (keywords), or other web services.
