[caution]This Guide is intended for Legacy Themes or EKM online shops in Custom Mode. If you are using the Aerial Theme, please click here for the correct Guide. [/caution]

[intro]When you have completed this Guide, you will know how to hide Categories on your EKM online shop - useful for listing completely new Product lines and keeping them under wraps until their release date![/intro]

1. From the Dashboard page, click the Shop tab:

2. You then need to ensure that your Edit Content button is switched on:

3. Then you need to locate the Category that you would like to hide. If it’s a main Category, you will find it in the menu of your EKM online shop. Click the Edit Content button next to the Category’s name to open the Edit Category window:

4. However, if the Category you want to hide is a Subcategory, you will need to go to the main Category page that the Subcategory resides in, and then click the Edit Content button to open the Edit Category window:

5. Once you’ve opened the Edit Category window, you need to un-tick the box on the top right-hand side to hide the Category, before clicking Save & Close:

6. This will hide the Category from public view. To reveal the Category again, simply follow the same procedure above and tick the box to make your Category visible again.

[remember] When a Category is hidden, it will hide anything within it, including Products and Subcategories. If you have any Products with the hidden Category set as their Master Category, these will be hidden until the Master Category is made visible again. [/remember]
