-- url of the page with the problem -- :
-- HikaShop version -- : 4.0.2
-- Joomla version -- : 3.9.3
-- PHP version -- : 7.2.10
-- Browser(s) name and version -- : chrome

Good day! When you edit a manufacturer category in Hikashop, the corresponding category_type category in the database changes. Instead, the manufacturer becomes product. Could you tell me so and should be? and how to check and fix it? Where can I specify that this category belongs to the manufacturer type?
1. cat_type.jpg - True if specified category_type from the manufacturers?

Normally the rule is like this:
The category type of an element is copied from its parent category type. However, if the parent category is the "root" category with the category type "root" (which is like that by default), then the category type is not changed.
So if the category type of the main manufacturer changes to "product" when you edit it, I suspect that the root category's type has been changed from "root" to "product" leading to the issue you have.
Please check that category's type with phpmyadmin and restore it and it should then work properly.
