Add alias to category name

Hello,

Some times it's unavoidable to have "duplicate" category names. A wine example:
  • France has white wines
  • Germany has white wines

or
  • White wines from France
  • Red Wines from France

Some of the store functionalities use categories to identify the items that are discounted for instance. When a long list is used the correct category selection is now by "trial and error". If the category alias is added to the category name it's much easier to select the correct category. Example screen shot attached.

Thanks and regards,

Bas

Hello Vyacheslav,

I'm aware that the category alias, just like any other Joomla alias, can be changed into other values. But that is not the the point. The point is that if there are categories with the same name, as explained earlier, it is difficult to select the correct one as there is no disticntive value o select. Such is the case with the sales option in the shop settings. Please view the attachment for an example.

Thanks and regards,

Bas
