Powerstore 4 Online Clothing Shop

Hi all,

I am intending to use powerstore for a online clothing store. I am in testing stage at the moment and I just wondered if I would be able to do the following.

A standard ecommerce fashion store would generally have categories like

>Trousers & Skirts


"Women" and "Men" being the main category in a side bar and the rest being sub-categories.
If I currently click Women in my default powerstore site I will be taken to the products_Results.php page which will return no results. This is becuase all my products are assigned to sub-categories.

I would like to create unique pages for my main category pages so for example is a visitor clicks on e.g "Women" category they will be taken to a my_Unique_Page.php page with images of models wearing latest fashion. This page will be dynamic, almost like a product detail page that is filtered by a visitor clicking on a main category link in the side bar.

If they click on a sub category e.g. Tops, they will be taken directly to the products_Results.php page.

I am sure this is very simple to do but I cannot figure out how to change the default. I am also not sure if this can be done through powerstores CMS or directly in dreamweaver.

I am guessing I will have to create a recordset on my main.dwt for ps3_categories. I am not sure where to go from here?

All help is greatly appreciated!!!

I think an easy of doing is by selecting the main category and sub category for each product. For example, if you go to your product update page for a product in the Top sub category, then just make sure to select Top and Women from the category list. And if you do that for all your products, then clicking on the Women Category will show all products in the Women Category.
