Category Menu Option Static form without products
« on: May 07, 2020, 04:06:03 AM »
Hi

I have just run into a problem. I have one menu option (category) where I have a page without products and a form. But, I get an automatic message at the bottom of the form that tells me "There are no products to list in this category."

That is because this page would have no products.

I see I can create a form using the Form Manager, but it will not add a link in the menu at the top of my page.

Any ideas on a workaround for this?

Thanks a lot in advance

Are you creating a page or category?
Category suppose to have products or subcategories in it.
Page (content area) can be created and anything can be added to it.

Thanks for your reply.

Well, I am not sure. My horizontal menu at the top is my category list. So, it naturally seemed like the right thing to do for me to just add another category there and then add the fields I wanted.

My question is, how would I get a "page" to show up horizontally next to the categories if I were adding a page? A page seems to be the right way to go, but I want it naturally integrated in the navigation menu
