This might be a really simple thing i may be overlooking that’s been driving me crazy for the past two days… I setup an “Ecommerce Collections” with 4 Products. None of them are assigned to any categories. Created a bunch of “Categories” and did not assign any items. When I create a “Category Template” from Ecommerce Collection, all my “Categories” display all 4 items in my Ecommerce Collection… Why?
Because a template page allows you to map elements to fields in that template’s collection (in this case the collection is Categories). So by adding a collection list with Products as a source it will display all items in that collection (Products) unless you filter them.
The benefit of the Categories template could then be to filter the products by ‘Current Category’.
Makes sense, thanks you!
