Freqently Asked Questions
Pre-sales informations

This extension works with Magento Community Edition and also Magento Enterprise Edition. To know if Category Navigation is compatible with your Magento version, please check the Compatibility tab.

License and domains

A license is valid for an unlimited period of time on one single Magento installation

  • If you're using more than one Magento installation, you will have to buy a separate license for each instance.
  • if you're running several domains on a same Magento installation, you will need only one license for all of them.
Although your license doesn’t have a limited period of validity, your support period does. By purchasing an extension, you’ll be granted a 6-month support period for free. Passed this period, you will have to pay for a new one (see FAQ: Extend your Support period)

You can pre-register your live domain to your license in advance.

Thanks to this option, you'll be able to get the extension ready to use on your domain before it goes live.

To pre-register your production domain: 

  1. Go to:
    mY accountLicenses & DOwnloads
  2. Click on  next to the extension you want your domain to pre-register on.
  3. Click on the link at the bottom of the page saying:
    Do you want to pre-register your domain in order to be ready to go live?
  4. Finally, enter your domain name and click on pre-register now .
Attention, this doesn't mean your license is activated. You'll still have to activate it on your new domain when the extension is installed. 

One license is valid for an unlimited period of time on one Magento installation only. However, it is possible to extend or transfer your license in 2 cases: 

  • If you would like to add your testing environments to your license. 
    In that case, it is possible to extend your license to an unlimited number of domains for free.
    For example: mywebsite-staging.com or mywebsite-dev.com
  • If you want to transfer your license to another live domain.
    In that case, the support period for your license must still be active.

To be able to use Category Navigation on both your production and testing environments, follow the instructions below:

  1. Download Category Navigation.
    (see FAQ: Extensions download)
  2. Install Category Navigation on your environment.
    (see FAQ: Extensions installation)
  3. Activate the license.
    (see FAQ: Extensions activation from the backoffice or Extensions activation from the CLI)

Also, if you are managing a large amount of domains, please contact us so that we can automatically whitelist these domains.

    mY ACCOUNTLicenses & Downloads
     
    Refer to the FAQ: Extensions download
  2. Once Category Navigation is downloaded, open the folder and unzip it.
  3. Copy the content of the unzipped folder and paste all files and directories in your Magento 2 root directory.
  4. In your Command Line Interface, execute:
    bin/magento setup:upgrade 

    If you are using a production mode, execute also:

    bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy  
    bin/magento setup:di:compile  

You can install Category Navigation using Composer software in two cases:

  • if you purchased Category Navigation on Magento Marketplace.
  • if you purchased Category Navigation on Wyomind.com AND requested access to our repository:
    repo.wyomind.com
  1. Add to your composer configuration our repository:
    composer config repositories.wyomind composer https://repo.wyomind.com 

  2. Execute Composer command:
    composer require wyomind/categorynavigation
  3. Then go in your Command Line Interface and execute:
    bin/magento setup:upgrade ​
  4. If you are using a production mode, also execute:
    bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy  ​
    bin/magento setup:di:compile​

To uninstall Category Navigation, start with disabling the extension running the following command:

bin/magento module:disable Wyomind_CategoryNavigation

Then, you have 2 ways to uninstall the extension depending on how the extension has been previously installed: 

  • Manual installation

    Run the categorynavigation-uninstall.sh file (you can find it in the extension zip folder) from your Magento root directory:

    sh categorynavigation-uninstall.sh

     

  • Installation via Composer

    Run the below command line:

    composer remove wyomind/categorynavigation

Once the uninstallation is over, refresh your cache and enable the compiler back again (if you use it). 

You can install Category Navigation via Web Setup Wizard if you purchased it from Magento Marketplace only.

To know how to proceed, all steps are described in the link below: 
http://docs.magento.com/m2/ce/user_guide/system/component-manager.html

Next step is to activate your license:
Extension activation

Extensions activation

Once Category Navigation is installed, you have to activate the license. For previous versions, you can activate the license from your back-office:

    1. Go to your Magento admin panel. A message pops up at the top of the page.


      If the message doesn't appear then you must check that:

         1. The Adminhtml_Notifications and Wyomind_Core modules are well enabled.
         2. The HTML output of the Adminhtml_Notifications and Wyomind_Core modules are not disabled in:
      storesconfigurationadvanced advanced
         3. The encryption key well exists in app/etc/env.php:
      <?php
       return array(
       'backend' => array(
       'frontName' => 'admin'
       ),
       'crypt' => array(
       'key' => '1e8f3c6772b7a6a6689c3c8cefa4ccf0'
       ),
       /* ... */
       )
      ?>​
    2. Copy your activation key in:
      StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension

      You can find your activation key in 2 different places:
      In the confirmation email that you received after purchasing Category Navigation.
      In your Wyomind account:My account Licenses & downloads
      Select Category Navigation and click on  .

      A new page opens where you'll find your activation key (see below).


    3. In your Magento admin go to:
      StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension

      Paste the activation key in the Activation Key field and choose between the automatic (yes) or the manual (no) activation method:
      By choosing Yes, the connection to Wyomind license server will be automatic.
      By choosing No, you will have to log on to Wyomind license server yourself.

    4. Click on Save config .
    5. A message appears at the top of your admin panel. Click on that link: 
      Activate it now!
    6. Copy and paste the license code in the License code field from your admin or simply click on Activate now! 


    7. Finally, refresh your cache, log out and log in back straight after, to complete the installation.

When the extension includes other modules, repeat the steps described above for each one, using the corresponding activation keys (each module has its own activation key).

Add another domain to your license


To activate the license on another domain (test, staging...):

  1. Once the extension is installed on the new domain, copy your activation key in:
    StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension
  2. After having saved the configuration, a notification appears. Click on Add this domain to my license.

  3. A transfer request will then be sent to our team within an hour.
    Once the request is taken care of, you will receive a confirmation email.
    If your transfer request is accepted, you can use Category Navigation on both environments at the same time.

Note that the order in which you activate your license on your domains does not matter. You can start with your staging/dev/local environment or with your live domain, the process will be the same.

Also, if you have loads of staging domains, or if you are an agency managing load of domains for your customers, please contact us so that we can automatically whitelist these domains.

Once Category Navigation is installed, you have to activate the license.

For this, you can use the below command line (change the Activation key with the corresponding value):

bin/magento wyomind:license:activate Wyomind_CategoryNavigation <YOUR_ACTIVATION_KEY>

To retrieve the list of all the available modules as well as the licenses status, please use:

bin/magento wyomind:license:status

 

 Among the different status, you can find: 

  • registered = your license is registered
  • pending = you need to run the activation command line
  • invalidated = the license has been invalidated due to a wrong activation key or a license infringement

 

To activate several licenses at the same time, use:

bin/magento wyomind:license:activate \
Wyomind_Extension1,Wyomind_Extension2 \
ACTIVATION_KEY_1,ACTIVATION_KEY_2

or:

bin/magento wyomind:license:activate \
Extension1,Extension2 \
ACTIVATION_KEY_1,ACTIVATION_KEY_2
