Regarding categories - Is it really not capable of having one product in more than one category?
Basically I want to have product TYPE - as a category (for instance, strollers), and I also want to allow the customer to look at products via the BRAND - (for instance, eddie bauer) - so I'd need the stroller listed in teh stroller category, as well as the eddie bauer category so it can easily be found by both queries.
How can I get this accomplished? When I update a product using the admin section, it only allows me to select one category.
You would want to add subcategories if you wanted more, which is possible but requires database updates and updates to the queries used to populate the menu.
