I'm using magento 2 , and I'm trying to create the product categories this way : basicly I want a parent category called CLOTHING that will appear in the navigation , and a subcategory called DRESSES in the CLOTHING category , and at the same level as CLOTHING I also want to see DRESSES , as it is a category , even if is a subcategory , and I want it to link same as clothing/dresses.. I don't know if I explained myself well..

1 Answer 1


So DRESSES would be a subcategory of CLOTHING, but you also have a top level category of DRESSES?

Are they both the same?

If so, you should be able to set them both to the same URL Key?

  • yes , they will be both the same , is just that I want dresses also as a top level category but I don't want to create another top category , as dresses is already a subcategory of clothing.. how do I set both on the same url key ? or do I need to create also a top category called dresses , with their subcategories , same as clothing/dresses ?

  • I think (if I understand correctly), that you need to create both categories in the category structure in Products\ Categories\ (Admin), just make sure that you add the same URL Key. May 6, 2016 at 8:50
  • So I need to create DRESSES and his subcategories 2 times ? One as subcategory of CLOTHING , and another one as top category by his own ?
