SoftSlate Commerce has four special Built-In Categories that you can use to display special products throughout the store. If you've created any of these categories in your store, SoftSlate Commerce will automatically load their products into memory, so you can use them to display special products on any screen. By default, the categories will be displayed on the right-hand side of the Welcome Screen.
The four Built-In Categories that SoftSlate Commerce looks for have the following category codes:
These categories can be used, respectively, for featured products, most popular or bestselling products, favorites, and new products. (You can actually name the categories whatever you like, so long as the category code is one of the four codes.
As an example, let's add the "_features" category to the store, and then add some products to it.
Example 13.1. Adding a Built-In Category
Products -> Categoriesscreen. Click the "Add New Record" button on the right hand side of the screen to go to the add category form.
Products -> Categories. You'll see the new "_features" category in the table in the center of the screen. Click the "Products" link next to it to view the products assigned and not assigned to the category. Click the "On" button next to "Edit Mode", check the checkboxes under the "Assigned" column next to the product you want to assign to the category, and click "Update/Delete" to save the change.
