I am using <%NavigateShowAlphabet%> and I discovered that if finds all the products with a certain letter, even if the product belongs to a hidden category.
The option to hide a category is very good because we can hide temporaty categories with all the products and is no need to hide products one by one.
Seems that in the Navigation Show Alphabeth the function doesn't take in consideration the categories table.
Any solution for this?

Hi Kristiansen,

Unfortunately the Alphabet Feature works on a different function to the category display function so there is no default way around this.

You could use the bulk updater to update the products you wish to hide or the bulk import option would allow you to hide the product even quicker by simply uploading a text file with the relevant products set to hide.

Wehn ready to go live you could upload a new import file and set the products to show again.

Please see the following help note for more info on this topic:
