[TomatoCart]Enable / disable top or side categories menus in the bootstrap template

In the bootstrap template, all of categories added in the admin panel will be shown in the top and side categories menus in the store front.

You may wish to hide some of categories within the top or side menus. It’s not difficult to achieve it. I have implemented such kind of feature. Store owners can enable or disable the category in the admin panel.

So, if you don’t want to show the Desktops category in the Top menu or Side menu of store front, please just check the Disabled radio checkbox.

As you can see, first I disable the Desktops category in the Top menu, it just shows in the Side menus now.

How to apply this functionality for your store?

Step 1. Download the top-side-menu.zip at https://www.dropbox.com/s/51w57b34uo27zj9/top-side-menu.zip?dl=0

Step 2. Unzip it. You will see following directory structure:

Step 3. Backup above files to apply the code changes safely.

Step 4. Copy above admin, includes and templates fold into your TomatoCart root directory. Please just override original ones.

That’s it. After that, you just need to go to admin panel > Catalog > Categories module to enable or disable the category.
