i am using magento 1.8.1 CE.

Is it possible to have the category tree expanded while when adding new products? Now i have to fold it out myself every time untill the right category.

Thanks in adavance.

  • Due to the fact, that every level is loaded, I think it is not super easy to implement, but of course you can do it by changing the block which is rendered. What have you tried? What is the problem? – Fabian Blechschmidt Dec 18 '14 at 9:53
  • I haven't tried anything yet. I Will have a look At The block – Ronny Dec 18 '14 at 9:55
  • You mean 'expanded', right? – Marius Dec 18 '14 at 12:33
  • yeah, i mean expanded – Ronny Dec 18 '14 at 12:38

I'm not sure if it's a typo or not, but I assume you need the category tree expanded.
If this is the case, take a look at the template file that renders the categories for the product add/edit form: app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/catalog/product/edit/categories.phtml

At the end of the Ext.EventManager.onDocumentReady function there is a commented line.


Un-commenting this line will make the tree appear expanded. But this is not a good idea if you will have a lot of categories or a lot of levels.

Of course is not a good idea to edit a core file directly. You should copy the file in a custom admin theme and change your admin theme.
