Categories in mobile view

In the table above you notice that the categories will look different depending on the combination of Orientation and Style. Note that the above examples are a showcase only for the Desktop view.

For the Mobile view, the rules are a bit different.

First of all, if you assign the Categories to a Column Left or Column Right position, it will not get displayed whenever your users are browsing the website in mobile view. This is standard behavior for the standard OpenCart theme. If you are using a custom theme, the Column Left and Column Right might be visible.

If you assign the Categories to the Content Top or Content Bottom position, regardless of the value of the Orientation option, the categories will show up like this:

As you can see, depending on the style, the categories will be displayed as a listing only for the Mobile view. The Desktop view is explained in detail in the table above.
