OpenCart 2 only shows 5 categories in Products link tab

  • Answered
I'm not able to access some of my categories when editing a product. I read that the Category dropdown on the Links tab when editing a product only shows the first 5 categories. Further searching on this issue resulted in a suggestion to type the first few letters of your category name and it will appear. However, that doesn't seem to be working for me.

When I try to get to one of my categories that doesn't display in the list, the farthest I get is the main/parent category. I don't see the subcategory that I need to choose.

In my 'Jewelry' category, I have a subcategories of 'Lego' and 'Art Deco', but when I start to type in 'jewelry', nothing shows up except 'jewelry'. What do I need to do in order to be able to choose 'Jewelry > Lego'?

Sorry to hear you are having an issue with displaying the categories after the 5 limit in OpenCart. Unfortunately, this is not an issue that we have the ability to correct since it is a known issue within OpenCart. You may want to check in the OpenCart community to see if any of the developers there have seen the issue and corrected it.

Kindest Regards,
