You can configure the way your products are displayed at the main
Products page. Please find the following buttons and fields at the end
of Products Toolbar:
You can adjust columns width by clicking on the first icon. Second
and third icons expand and collapse products when "Show all grouped"
Filter is chosen. You can make your own filter or use "Filter by
selected category" option (see picture below).
Filter option is actually the one that is responsible for the
products' view on the page. You can select from two filter types,
specified in a drop-down:
Filter by Selected Category
You can see all the products from the category you've selected in the
Categories section. No additional sorting options are available, only
standard column sorting.
Show all Grouped
You can see all the products that belong to all categories. The first
special feature of this filter type is that a Category column is added
to Products section. You can also see a grey box at the top of all columns
that says: "Drag a column header here to group by that column".
Whenever you drag any column header there (Category header grouping
is shown below), products will be grouped in categories by this
You can Expand/Collapse any category by double-clicking on it. When
any category is opened, you'll be able to see full product description.
You can also use Expand / Collapse
products buttons at the main Products tool-bar.
There's also a possibility to build a "category tree" using this filter
type. Let's say you want all your products grouped by Category and each
Category by different Price. Than simply drag Price header into the
grey field and drop it behind Category Field. You can also set
"Category" as a category with "Price" subcategory; just drop Category
ahead of Price Field.
When you drag column header back it would be placed between the columns where you dropped it.
