VmRelations plugin can automatically check whether your products are integrated into parental categories. If it finds that products are in a sub-category it will display them in the parent category. The plugin triggers itself whenever the administrator logs in to administration. Normal operation of the shop is not delayed.

Plugin Example

The plugin was designed as unobtrusive. You notice it only when you log into the administration. It displays a notice whether all the relationships among products and categories are up-to-date and if not, how many were added. Simply, everything is automatic after enabling this plugin.


Example of Use

We have 3 levels of categories: Motorcycles> Pants> Leather pants. We insert product called Pants Yark 11th into the category Leather Pants. Normally, the product would appear in the category of  Leather Pants only.  That is extremely user unfriendly because the user migh also search in the Pants and Motorcycles categories. The VM relations plugin automatically takes care of it and displays all products from child categories in the parent category.

All you need to do is enable the plugin after installation in Extensions > Plugin Manager.
