Question Linking Sub-domain Stores to main Datafeedr Category navigation

Hi Everyone,
I am running a series of stores in the Home Center topic. The Product list could be well over 100,000 items. Therefore Ive decided to make each category as a separate sub-domain storefront. I.E.:
www.lighting.homecenter.com
www.furniture.homecenter.com
www.appliances.homecenter.com
www.bedbath.homecenter.com
www.etc.etc..homecenter.com

All is going fine until I have to link each store back to the main store page
www.homecenter.com as a store category. I can hyperlink back to the site & page, yet how do I link each within the main site DFR store Categories list?
Dont have them up and running yet (Very Soon!). So I can show an example.
Probably real obvious and Im overlooking it. I have searched the videos, forums, and Datafeedr Documentation. Cant find anything helpful.

Thanks for your help.

Axel

Hi

There's no way to add the link to your main site in your store links such as category links and product links.

But, why not just add a link to your main menu of each sub-domain store which links back to your main site? That's what I would do.

Default Thanks Eric

Thanks Eric,
So I'm just making things over-complicated. It makes sense. Thanks again.

I was going to drip-feed items to the main store home page from the sub-stores. Any thoughts.

Hi

This is impossible by default. You'd have to write your own PHP code to make this happen.

Eric,
Also been meaning to ask what is the recommended max products per store? 60G, 80G?
And does this affect SEO and loading times?

Hi

There is a 100,000 products per store limit.

Yes, the larger your store the more it could affect page load times and SEO for different reasons.

Also, please see the posting rules, specifically regarding posting multiple issues in one thread.

Thanks,
Eric
