Session note:

Following this video - you'll notice an error: When you try to create sub-categories, the "Options" does not give the "Parent" choice. Instead, it gives "Alternative Layout" choice.

Some of these lessons were built using the Beta version so we could make them available at an early date.

In Category Manager when you click on New or edit an existing category the parameters for child items are now at the bottom of the page - you do not need to click on Options
