How to make general category into subcategory 6 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi there, is there a way to put all of the created categories into one general.
For example:

Now I have around 32 categories with a number of subcategories, and I need to put all these 32 categories and their subcategories into one general category.

There is a strange thing, once created a category it can't be edited, the PARENT tab color changes to grey and I can't edit it, so I need to delete the category and make it all over again, so I can't move all of my categories into one.

I would appreciate any ideas. The idea for now is to make xml exports of all of the categories and subcategories, after that deleting all of my categories, and making them again in the right way, and then importing all of the xmls. But that action is , so I'm looking for a better way.

Hi,

That was do for security reason

For move books to some other category - YES you need do XML - import / export.

What version you use ?
With that I will can change for you Book Library Category Manage - for possibility change parent item

Worked perfectly.

Thank you so much.

Another question though, what modification I need to do, if I want to get the number of the books which are in the parent category. Now I'm getting 0, because there are no books in the parent directory, but there are like 30 subcategories with a lot of subcategories of their own, and I want to get the total of all the books in the subcategories and their subcategories and list it in the parent directory, so I would have :

CATEGORY: NUMBER OF BOOKS

MANAGEMENT 1000

INSTEAD of:

CATEGORY: NUMBER OF BOOKS

MANAGEMENT 0

You can do that self in file:

Or buy customization from ordasoft.com through "Contact form"
