How to display sub-categories as the static blocks in Prestashop app?
Normally, when you navigate to a category in a Prestashop app, the product list will be displayed.
In case you prefer to display its sub-categories as the static blocks instead, please make sure the category meets this criteria: The category has no products assigned to itself in the website backend.
In Prestashop, the root categories are added products from sub-categories by default. With Prestashop 1.17.x , you can download and install "Fated search" module to make the root categories has no products assigned to itself. Please follow the steps below to install and configure it.
