I have 10 categories and on my homepage. I'm using now the HikaShop Content Module and it shows. That's is working.

But now i want to limit the categories which are shown, let's say 3 specific categories, id 3,6 and 7. How to? Is there maybe a categorie short code which i can set in the content to display a specific category?

Regards Michel

I think the best would be to:
1. Create an unpublished category so that you could select it as the main category of your module
2. Create 3 categories as children of this unpublished category
3. In each of these 3 categories, enter the URL of the actual corresponding category in its "canonical URL" and use the same category name and image.
4. Make sure that the "force canonical URLs on listings" setting is activated in the HikaShop configuration.

That way, the module will display these three new categories, but their links will point to the other three categories you want.
