Hi! We are trying to list our sub-sub categories vertically rather than across the page. We have the main categories listed horizontally with photos underneath and then their sub categories but when they break into smaller sub-sub categories we were hoping to just have them listed down the page rather than across. Does anyone know how to do this? I really appreciate your time and help and look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks so much,

just thought that I would add an example:

our main category say is "Gloves" you click on that and then see (the sub categories are listed across the page - I numbered them just so you could see the different categories):

1. Controlled Environment 2. Industrial 3.Laboratory

We have photos under each heading but for instance when you click on Laboratory it is broken down further. Currently you would see (categories listed across the page again):

1.Latex Lo-Powder 2.Latex Powder Free 3.Nitrile Lo-Powder

4. Nitrile Powder Free 5. Nylon 6.Surgeon's

7. Vinyl Powder Free

Does anyone know how to do the listing like this (no photos just a list):

Latex Low Powder

Latex Powder Free

Nitrile Low Powder

Nitrile Powder Free



Vinyl Powder Free

Thanks again for your time and help! Have a good one!
Take care,

Hi Catherine,

the easiest way to achieve this I think would be:

1. Go to your Admin -> Cart Setup -> Products1 and find xcatmaxcolumns. Set this to 1

2. Open the template tmp_categorytemplate.htm in a text or html editor and remove [FORMATIMAGE SUB]. Unfortunately this will stop ALL category images from displaying.

Thanks again for your help Carol - I really appreciate it! I think I may try this just to see how it looks but I'm not sure if I want to get rid of all the category pictures.
Thank you so much and take care!
