About the category page and the catalog item page

Category pages and catalog item pages are page layouts that you can use to show catalog content in a consistent manner across your site. By using these pages, you don’t need to create many individual pages for content that you want to display in a consistent matter across your site.

For example, imagine that you’ve a website that sells electronic devices. The layout and structure of the page that displays MP3 players should be consistent with the layout and structure of the page that displays cameras. So, instead of creating one page to display MP3 players and one page to display cameras, you can create one category page and use this to display content for both product groups.

Here’s an example showing how one category page is used to display two different product categories.

Similarly, the layout and structure of a page that displays an MP3 player should be consistent with the layout and structure of a page that displays a camera. Instead of creating one page for each separate item, you can create a catalog item page and use this to display content for each item.

Here’s an example showing how one catalog item page is used to display two separate products.
