Video presenting all major features of PrestaCategories - tuto part 1/2 ( duration 20mm):
This video is presenting one by one each of the major features of PrestaCategories. Probably the easiest way to discover this great Prestashop module and to get trained to use it. Topics covered: what's for, move categories, create or clone categories in bulk, edition of categories, HTML editor, association between categories and products and shops, mulitple languages, MagicEdit (text fields bulk editing), customers groups, mass upload of photos, bulk edit of products, columns and other visual settings,...
PrestaCategories is a super-module ( Windows aplication) to easily and quickly manage your Prestashop e-commerce catalog, by providing amazing tools to move, edit, clone, and activate categories and their content, associate, hide, show and move products.
It permits for example:
To move and associate all or a subset of products from one family to another (default category).
To clone a tree or selection of categories under any others target categories, with or without their products, scenes, discounts,...
To move a selection or a tree (or a selection of trees) of families to a different location in the tree (in one click !).
To make visible (associate) , link or unlink, a selection or all products to a category or a selection of categories.
To activate /deactivate a set of products and / or categories.
To create new, edit (HTML form included), delete categories, in all languages.
To quickly visualize the list of products of one or more categories (selection possible between "visible" products and products having this category as default category).
Taxes prices calculated for any country / state (from Prestashop V1.4).
To create new groups of customers, to bulk associate them to categories, to bulk manage discounts of groups and discounts per category per group.
To mass upload images of categories
In a multi shops context (PS 1.5 and above), to bulk associate products and categories to the shops.
PrestaCategories and PrestaPricing are now talking to each other. PrestaPricing, which integrates a very powerfull tool to import lists (xls,xlsx, csv) of products and combinations, is now also capable (when PrestaCategories is also running on the same PC) to create the missing categories during the import. This is the ultimate solution for instance to enterely migrate your catalog, with products, combinations, categories, images,... from an old Prestashop version into a more recent one.

Like PrestaPricing, PrestaCategories is a Windows application which connects to the database by https in a totally secure manner (16bits encryption key).
It uses a special connection module for Prestashop (Sitolog Application Connect), provided with the application. The connection works even on shared servers, without requiring to open the 3306 port. It does NOT need to activate the SSH protocol either.
Does not require to install any additional pluggin on the server.
The installtion is simple, takes less than 5 min. Will assign you free of charge if you get any trouble.
Only exception: Like many other modules, cannot be installed on PrestaBox, as Prestashop has blocked the FTP access on this platform.
When cloning a category and its content, there is no creation of new products. The products of the cloned category are simply declared visible in the new categories.
