Moving a product group (a)

By clicking the arrow buttons pointing up or down, you can move a product group accordingly. Product groups can also be moved with the cut, copy and paste commands in Groups management.

Group direct link (b)

Group direct link is useful for creating links to product groups from outside the Webshop. As the result, link will display list of group's products. Group code is used to refer to the group in question. You can set the code from Groupcode field under Product group editor. Link will be of the form http://www.mycompany.com/ShowGroup/xxx, where xxx is the group code. Also white spaces can be used in groupcode. If more than one group is found with selected reference, then first match is displayed. Direct link will open group with default theme settings unless a theme number is given in the link. A direct link opening a product group in a specific theme has the following form: http://www.mycompany.com/ShowGroup/xxx/yyy, where xxx is the group code and yyy is the theme number. If group is hidden or not visible under default theme, notification "Access denied for Product / Group" displayed. If link refers to group, which doesn't exist, notification "Product / Group not found!" displayed.

It is a good practice to give product groups as descriptive names as possible, as the names are used as titles of the product groups in the Webshop. The name of the root group of a product group tree is used to refer to the entire tree.
