    Hi Amigo,

    If you see on the the default category definition in uCommerce you have a property called Display on website. So if this is checked it should display the category on the website. And if it´s unchecked then it should not display the category on the website.

    What you need is to update the razor file that print out your categories, and add a where clause. My example is based on the uCommerce demo razor store. So I have made the changes into the file called LeftNavigation.cshtml in the demo razor store.

    @using UCommerce.Api
    @using UCommerce.EntitiesV2
    @using UCommerce.Extensions
    @using UCommerce.Runtime
    @helper RenderNavigation(ICollection<Category> categories)
        if (categories.Any())
            <ul class="nav nav-list">
                @foreach (var category in categories.Where(x => x.DisplayOnSite).OrderBy(x => x.SortOrder))    
                    var currentCategory = SiteContext.Current.CatalogContext.CurrentCategory;
                    var css = "";
                    if (currentCategory != null && currentCategory.CategoryId == category.CategoryId)
                        css = " class=\"on\"";
                    <li @Html.Raw(css)>
                        <a href="@CatalogLibrary.GetNiceUrlForCategory(category)">@category.DisplayName()</a>


    Hope this helps,
