If you manage many banners, it might be very useful to have an option to separate them into categories and/or sub-categories.
The "Banners categories" feature allows you to do so. First, you have to activate the feature in the merchant panel at Configuration --> Features --> Banners categories --> Activate
To create or manage banners categories navigate to Banners --> Banners categories. Click "New category" and select the created category to edit its details. Define Name, Visibility and Description. Make sure to save your changes.
In order to create a sub-category, click the + button of the parent category. Select the "New sub-category" to edit its details. You are allowed to create as many categories or sub-categories as you wish.
If you wish to create another parent category, click the "New Category" button again. You can define any parent or sub-category as default by clicking the "locker" icon. Also, make sure to "Save structure" after any changes.
Add banners into categories
Navigate to Banners --> Banner manager --> Add new (or Edit) banner --> Scroll to the "Categories" section --> Click "Change". Select the category or even multiple categories the banner should belong to. Make sure to "Save modified rows" before closing the modal window.
That's it! Thanks to this configuration, now you and your affiliates are able to filter your banners by category. The "Categories" field is automatically included in the default filter section in Banners --> Banner manager --> Advanced filter (Merchant panel) or Promotions --> Banners & Links (Affiliate panel)
