  • Show number of products in category : Enable if you need to show the number of products in a category next to the category name.
  • Wrap long category names : Enable if you need word wrapping for long category names.
  • Show category triangles : Enable if you need to display a tiny triangle next to the names of categories that include subcategories. Categories that do not contain subcategories will not be furnished with a triangle. Having this option activated can help your store visitors to navigate through your category tree better.
