I have import Joomla categories and articles.
What I want is to change some setting for all categories and subcategories, like
- Leading count
- Columns for leading
- Sub-category blocks

I change setting on root category but it is not affecting to subcategories.

Hello,

Set one category as the default setup category (do not add any items to it) and have all other categories inherit its settings from there.

Hello, thank you
I have created one category without items in it., but, cant figured how to
"all other categories inherit its settings from there"
Do I need manually do that for all categories or is there any way automatic "add to all categories"?
Thx

Hello,

In each category's settings you need to change the "Inherit settings from" parameter and select the setup category.
