You must publish categories so that they appear in the Category drop-down list when adding or editing a field. Categories that appear in the Category drop-down list allow you to group fields. For example, if the Additional Information category appears in the Category drop-down list, you can select it for one or more fields so that they belong to the Additional Information category.

You can publish a category by selecting Yes in the Published radio button when adding or editing a category. Alternatively, you can perform the following steps to publish an already existing category.

To publish a category:

1. Navigate to Components -> .JoomSuite User -> Field Categories in the Joomla global menu. The Category Manager page appears and displays the list of existing categories.

2. Select the check box corresponding to the category you want to publish. Click the Publish button [1] in the toolbar as shown in the following figure:

field_category_publish_new1

A tick mark appears under the Published column corresponding to the category you published.

To unpublish a category, select the category and click the Unpublish button in the toolbar .
