Anyone know how to get sub-domain landing pages within a single store?
I placed a step by step guide here that also:
Uses the description of the sub-category on the landing page
Uses the image that is set for the sub-category on the landing page
If an image is not set for the sub-category, it uses an image for one of the products in the sub-category
