I'm using Magento2, Hyva-Theme. I was working on catalog_category_view.xml and I came across this problem:

If I reach catalog_category_view.xml page I wanna see first all the subcategories linked to the category I've clicked on.

Then once navigating to one of that subcategories, I wanna see the products associated to that same subcategory.

The problem is that both pages (the primary categories one and the subcategories) are handled by catalog_category_view.xml. But I need 1column layout in the first one and 2columns-left layout on the other one (the one with products).

If I try to change the layout from here nothing changes, even from Admin -> Catalog -> Categories -> Design there's no way to change the layout.

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="1column" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">

So I discovered that there's another theme (a Porto theme), and changing the catalog_category_view.xml layout there I resolved the problem, but just locally. In stage the problem still remains.

However for managing subcategories I'm using Apptrian.

If you can help guys it would be a great help, thanks!
