Include a Category Page Identifier on the Product Ad Pages when Publishing
Note: This feature is only applied to Framed sites. In the Site Setup function, checking the "Include a Category Page Identifier on the Product Ad pages when Publishing" check box will place a Category Page Identifier across the top of each published product page. This identifier is a line of text composed of the main and sub category names for the products that appears on the page. An example category title is: Televisions - CRT and LCD TVs, where the main category is Televisions and the sub category is CRT and LCD TVs. It can be useful for identifying which product page the visitor is currently navigating.

You have two options: (1) Display it along the top of the page, or (2) have it dynamically float in the bottom right corner. For option (2), the Category Page Identifier will stay (float) in bottom right corner as the visitor scrolls up and down the page. The dynamically floating Category Page Identifier is a JavaScript routine that functions in Microsoft Internet Explorer web browsers.
