Listing subcategories

The navigation automatically displays the subcategories of the current categories in small tiles. Name and image are based on the corresponding information in the category management of Shopware.

This CMS extension is made up of various "components":

The CMS extension "Listing subcategories" is based on the theme extension of the same name. Both extensions are configured via the theme configuration.

Unlike the theme extension, the CMS extension can be positioned freely. Furthermore, additional layouts are available in the CMS extension.

Note: This element is only available in the ThemeWare® Pro Edition.

Tip: In the Cloud Edition, the theme extension of the same name is available: Listing subcategories

Important: As the name suggests, the CMS extension "Listing subcategories" only works on CMS pages of the type "Listing page". In addition, subcategories in Shopware 6 are only displayed for the main category.

Configure element

You can configure the ThemeWare® "Listing subcategories" as follows:

  1. Click on the corresponding CMS block (1) to activate the "edit mode"

  2. Hover the mouse over the desired CMS element

  3. The "Element Settings" pop-up will open

  4. Make the desired changes

  5. Save your changes

You have now configured the CMS element.


The texts and images shown were taken from the category management ("Catalogues" => "Categories") of Shopware.

The "Name" and the "Image" (= Display image) of the corresponding categories are displayed. The image is not mandatory.

Theme configuration

This CMS extension "Subcategories in Listing" is based on the theme extension of the same name. Both extensions are configured via the theme configuration:

Tab "Listing pages" => Block "Listing subcategories" => Show listing subcategories

Note: You do not need to activate the theme extension to use the CMS extension.

Element configuration

The actual configuration of the "Listing subcategories" can be found in the tab 'Listing pages' in the ThemeWare® configuration.


In the tab "Layout" you can activate a individual configuration for the element. This allows you to overwrite a few "global" configurations from the theme configuration.


In the tab "Grid" you can configure the number of columns in different viewports.


Layout types

There are currently 5 different display modes available (see screenshots below):

  • Button

  • Text only

  • Image only

  • Text below the image

  • Text next to the image
