Hello Cjdodaro,

Thanks for the question on making a category into a subcategory. In order to be able to do this, you would need to several items already set up as categories under HOME. This is done in the CATALOG>Categories section of the PrestaShop 1.6x administrator. You would select the category that you want to make into a subcategory, then click on EDIT. After you have selected EDIT, You would go to the PARENT CATEGORY section and click on EXPAND ALL. This will allow you to select where the category that you are editing will be placed. As a MAIN CATEGORY, it would be under the parent of HOME. If you are going to make it a sub-category, you would need to go to the main category and select that category for which your current category will become a SUB-Category. I know that sounds fairly confusing, but when you see it in the tree format, it will make more sense. Remember to click on SAVE in the bottom right hand corner when you have completed the change. Probably the closest article to describe with working in categories is Assigning Categories in PrestaShop 1.6.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Regards,
Arnel C.
