If I understand correct you want it so:

If you have Hats open then the rest will be closed.....
but when you click another catalog like Jewelry then Hats closes.

So you can only have one catalog open at once.

Please tell me if I'm right.

The most common way to accomplish what I believe you are after is by creating a separate page for each different category and it is it too many to put them all in yoru main navigation, you can link them all off of a main "online store" page using picture links. If this sounds inline with what you'd like to do and need more help with specifics, please let us know!

Hello animeinjuly,

There are very few free facilities to do this whereby you create a single list of products and add a category to each product.

You then have two choices for displaying a specific line of products within a category. This can be done by creating a page and within the third party facility select the category. This will create a page with only those products in it.

The second way is for your clients to select from a line of categories and allow the facility to then select the products.

Either one works as well and is up to you as the webmaster to create as your preference.

If you have 200 products or less then I really recommend as this program is free for less than 200 products.
