Simple categories for Shopify collections

One of the first things shop-owners new to Shopify tell us is that they can't believe there isn't a category system. Now with Categories Uncomplicated you can organise your collections into a structure that at a glance helps your customers understand: * What kinds of products you sell * How those products are organised * How they can narrow their search down to more specific sub-categories and find the group of products they're shopping for

3-in-1 bundle of products

Categories Uncomplicated includes: * Category list: a category list for your left-hand sidebar * Breadcrumbs: a full breadcrumb to show on collections or product pages * Icons: sub-category icons to show in each parent collection

Our Demo site shows all the features of Categories Uncomplicated in a live shop environment. There's also a combined product tour that covers all the bundled products.

Supports 2.0 themes

If you're using a new Shopify 2.0 theme (like Dawn), you can simply drag-and-drop the category breadcrumbs or icons into your theme using the Shopify Theme Editor. No coding required!

Suitability (1.0 themes only)

For older themes, the category list needs to be embedded somewhere on your site using liquid, which requires a basic HTML/CSS coding knowledge. We strongly recommend choosing a theme with a sidebar, selecting the place for your category list, then cut-and-pasting the embed. We regret we cannot offer a service to embed this for you in your store or customise your theme to make the category list look different. If it turns out that your theme is lacking or you're not comfortable coding themes, please choose a 2.0 theme.

Visitors and Search

Categories Uncomplicated isn't just about helping existing visitors become more valuable customers, it enables you to better present your products to search engines.

Create categories and sub-categories

with unique hierarchical URLs that allow search engines to index groups of your products in context.

Specialise each category (a collection)

with custom header text that explains what it's about. Show product counts against each of your categories so customers can quickly see where your catalogue is fullest.

Use the existing Shopify 'Navigation' system

to create links, then visualise them in the embedded Categories admin panel. Simply select the top-level category from the menu selector to see a category tree instantaneously.

Improve the SEO metadata

that you're sending to Google by including dynamically generated JSON-LD to describe the current category.

Create great intuitive navigation

by embedding our pre-built page elements in your navigation.

    Really simple app and was totally a lifesaver. We had some questions and Alex was really understanding and an amazing help

    Amazing app! Migrating from Magento with a large store with over 1000 collections, we have been scratching our heads for weeks trying to work out how to organise our categories and collections for effective SEO. At this point we've only used the breadcrumbs feature of this app, however I already can wholeheartedly recommend it. If you're serious about optimising your website for search engines this app really solves the issue of inadequate breadcrumbs on the Shopify platform. Alex has been kind enough to guide us in some small tweaks and his support is quick and responsive.

    Alex the developer was very quick to respond to support requests and was very helpful with how his app is setup for Online 2.0 themes, this is the best app on shopify for large collections. I would give 6 stars if i could. Get this app enough said!
