Desired behavior: I would like to see a Welcome Category Tab on French Store View, Bienvenue Category Tab on French store View

Actual Behavior: I get both English and French tabs (menus) in both stores!


I set up two store views (which works OK for all other translation requirements).

I set up two CMS static blocks - for 1) English store view 2) french store view.

Then I set up two categories - 1) Welcome 2) Bienvenue

For Each Category, in Display Settings, I set:

  • Display Mode = static block only
  • CMS = my language

Problem: I can make text language specific, but I don't know how to only show category tab for the appropriate Store View.

Answer was right there in category setup page!

In Category Setup Page, in Upper left hand corner, select store that you don't want to show category, specify "Is Active" = No

Unwanted tab is now gone.

Repeat for each category as required.
