Ordering of category list in the menu


(Florian Bender) #1

Continuing the discussion from The end of Clown Vomit, or, simplified category styles:

This is indeed confusing as it currently stands. Though this is not easy to solve with the two-column-layout. E.g. in your example, the parent category is at the very bottom and the subcategories at the top of the next column. Is it possible to add a break that is aware of the structure and e.g. push “Games” into the next column?

Not quite following. Could you mock something up please?

Is it clearer now?

So you are saying the sub-cats should be grouped with their parent cats in the drop-down menu?

If you look closely, they already are - it’s just that the ordering is left-to-right then top-to-bottom.
The recommendation is top-to-bottom then left-to-right.
