Hi Bradley,

Welcome to the forums!

It depends...

If your parent categories are empty (ie. there are no products in your parent categories) then the products in your child categories will "appear" in your parent categories.

However, if your parent categories have even 1 product in them, then they will only show those products, not products in their subcategories.

For example, if you have this:

1. Retro Fashion (0 products)
1.1 Dresses (0 products)
1.1.1 Swing (10 products)

Then the 10 products will appear in Dresses and Retro Fashion.

But if you have this:

1. Retro Fashion (1 product)
1.1 Dresses (1 product)
1.1.1 Swing (10 products)

Then you will only see 1 product in Retro Fashion, 1 product in Dresses and 10 products in Swing.

You can configure this setting here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > CATEGORY PAGE > Default > View menu > View Properties > When a category is empty...:

--- Display sub-category products
--- Do not display sub-category products

Hope this helps!
