You can achieve this by running the below queries in your database.

First, identify the attribute id of the is_anchor attribute with below query:

SELECT * FROM eav_attribute where attribute_code = 'is_anchor';

From this, you've got the attribute id. After this, you need to run the below query to update all category to Anchor YES.

UPDATE catalog_category_entity_int set value = 1 where attribute_id = 54;

Where 54 is the attribute id for is_anchor.

Hope it helps!!!

  • This is the same as what I did, but it doesn't work properly for all categories

  • I've checked this on my store and it will changed the values for all store views. Please run the re-index process and flush the caches on your website.

  • What changed is from store id = 0, I have 7 store id. For example, if a store has 283 categories, it must change 1981 rows

  • How many entries do you've in catalog_category_entity_int WHERE attribute_id=43?
