Categories and brands

I have a product catalog that I would like to categorise into different categories (and subcategories). I would also like to have a grouping of the products by brands (which of course are orthogonal to the categories).

The ideal thing is that a customer can search for products belonging to a category, and/or to some brand.

Until now I have only managed to create the main categories. I created also subcategories, but they do not get displayed in the products page, i.e. having something like

  • CatA

    • Sub1
    • Sub2
  • CatB

If I try to show all the products in CatA only those belonging directly to it (and not to Sub1 or 2) get displayed.

Of course I do not have any idea on how to implements the brands.


I’ve tried some options in the mean time. Regarding the brands, I understood it is a completely different taxonomy. I created it, and associated it with the products and I added a new search facet in the All Products page. Probably I’ll need some more advanced stuff in the future, but for now it is ok.

Instead, I’m still struggling with the sub-categories problem. I watched the following discussion & video: https://drupalcommerce.org/discussions/9017/product-catalog-terms-and-nodes They do something similar to what I need, but I need to put some modifications. I do not need multiple pages to navigate the categories. I simply want that if a user navigates a page like products/CatA all the products in Sub1 and Sub2 are shown.
