Changing sales catalog categories

You might want to change information about your sales catalog category. For example, you might want to change the description if the summer sales catalog is now on clearance.


  1. Open the Catalogs tool.
  2. From the explorer filter, select Sales Catalog Categories.
  3. On the explorer tree, right-click the sales catalog you want to change; then click Open.
  4. Expand the General Catalog Information section. Change the following information as needed:
    Code The language independent category identifier.
    Name The name of the category. This field can be edited in multiple languages.
    Short description Type a brief description of the category.
    Long description

    Type a detailed description, if applicable.

    Keyword Type one or more keywords, which are separated by a comma and a space that describe the contents of the Web page. Some Internet search engines use these keywords to determine whether your page satisfies a search query. This field can be edited in multiple languages.
    Parent category (master catalog) The category to which an object such as a category, product, or SKU belongs, or the catalog to which a top category belongs.
  5. Expand the Display information. Change the following information as needed:
    Display to customers Select this check box to indicate that customers can view this category in the storefront.
    Thumbnail All image files must be placed in the store's defined image directory. Determining the correct image directory and whether you need an absolute or relative path depends on your store's configuration. For example, the HCL Commerce starter store images use a relative path that points to the default installation directory under the store name. Use of a relative path is most common. Use of an absolute path is dependent on your initial configuration. Ask a store developer with Site Administrator authority for the correct image directory if you are unsure. This field can be edited in multiple languages.
    Full image Type the path to the full-size image and the name of the image, such as images/shirt.jpg. The path can be either a full path, or a relative path from your store directory.
  6. Click Save; then click Close.
