From what I can see of Magento it can support:
- a single “category” hierarchy. You can have multiple root categories, but not in one site.
- configurable attributes, but an attribute is “flat” and cannot have parent/child hierarchy
In my scenario, a product can be in two trees, say “topic” and “geography”, e.g.
-- Green issues
--- Alternative energy
What I would like to happen is for there to be two layered navigation areas, titled Topic & Geography, as opposed to just the one labeled Category by default.
Then if a user had browsed to Green Issues, they could see both Alternative Energy and Europe as refinements.
Could this be configured in Magento?
