Default AW: hidden categories

They are useful for example to grant a discount on several articles by category, which are normally in totally duifferent categories. Just assign them additionally to the same hidden category and then it works.

Or to have special shipment rules for some articles, to assign a promotion or anything else.

It is used to group articles from different visible categories for any purpose.

Hi Hebsacker I am unable to understand the concept. I have set a range of price for any category, all products in that category will also present in this category. But what is the main purpose of hidden checkbox? When I check it the category is not shown on front end same is the case with active checkbox. What is main difference between active and hidden?

I have created a new category by specifying the price range and added a special vat for it category. I can see the category in frontend if I don't hidden it. But when I add items from this category, nothing happens. The amount of VAT remains same as in others? When I marked hidden my category goes off.
So what is main difference between hidden and active inactive??

"active" / "inactive" switches the category on or off completely

If your category is "hidden", it is just not shown in frontend, but if set "active" you can still work with it.
