category thumbnails on store front

I have been looking through the forums and cannot quite get an answer...

Is there any way of having thumbnails for the categories on the store front, rather than the default list.

I have used featured images for all the products we have.

It would be nice to have thumbnails as the store front looks very boring, until you get down to individual products.

I hope someone can help.

    Hey there @ricky_farr

    Welcome to the forums, glad to have you aboard!

    There is currently no built-in way to add images to product categories.

    But you can add images as background elements to the category links with a bit of custom CSS.

    To do so, you would want to target only those specific links for each category image you want to add. So, for each, you would use a selectot like so:
    #mp_category_list ul a

    ...where cat-item-4 is the category-specific class selector. Simply change the number to match the category ID for the image you want as the background for that category.

    This way, you can add either large, clickable background images or icons to spruce up your category page.

    I hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:
