CataBlog Category Basic Tutorial Steps

Step 1 ) In this example I will be creating different categories to better organize the different type of images. See images below.

Important: By default CataBlog adds a default category Uncategorized. Make sure that when you start adding new categories you uncheck the default category for every new item you add. 


Step 2 ) If you cannot see your category or other information, click on the Screen Options on your top right hand corner.


Step 3 ) Select what you want to show on your screen and the amount of Catalog items, make sure that you click on Apply for the amount of items. catablog-show-on-screen

Step 4 ) The following image shows you how to group your images by Categories. In this example I created three categories. I assigned all the images to category zynga1.
