When someone clicks on the "Shop" link from my homepage, I'd like that first store landing page to show pictures/links of the individual categories within the store which will take them to the individual category pages, rather than show pictures of all of the products within all of the categories in the entire store.  Is this possible?

Thank you so much!

I think it is possible.

Please see the following post and install the code cited there. The original poster also describes the difficulty in targeting CSS to the main store page vs category pages.

Add the following to Store Settings > Advanced > Page Header Code Injection for the store page.


    this ruleset is not active in SS Preview. to test it use private browsing
    < https://tinyurl.com/mrx6rs47 >
  html:not( .squarespace-damask ) body:not( [data-store-category] ) .products.collection-content-wrapper .list-grid {
    display : none;

This is for v7.1.

Add a page section to your store page and use blocks to make the section look the way you want.

Let us know how it goes.

Hi @creedon for some reason it didn't work for me? All ended up being hidden and i can't have any product show up. Ideally i would like to be able to create a box for each category and sub-category and for that to lead me to the list of product within those categories. Can you please assist?

@creedon I've followed the above again and the outcome is not there yet. In the main shop page I have my two boxes that are linked to the categories but i still see the categories below. I would like to remove those in the initial view. Also, when i click on the box to go to a specific category i still see the boxes on top is there a way to hide them and only show the category? So to summarise, there are two issues:

1. I still see the categories below my category boxes on the top, would like to hide that on the main shop page.

2. once i click on the box i go to the specific category but i still see all the boxes. Is there a way to hide those once you enter into a category?


Thank you for your help!
