Having knowledge about how to find Magento category IDs is very useful for people who often need to deal with several services or requirements, including but not limited to:

  • Product introduction
  • Product Links
  • Product distribution
  • Class invocation in PHTML block
  • Display featured products on the home page
  • Invoke the product in a custom PHTML file

Even on many other requests based on your needs.

Finding Magento Class IDs is a very simple 4-click process. Be sure to follow carefully as described below

  1. Log in to the Magento admin panel
  2. Navigate to the directory and select Manage Categories
  3. Select the desired category name from the left (this will refresh the right block of data for the selected category)
  4. On the above headings, see the category name: id (screenshot of exact location)

Sample snapshots with both process and physical demos allow you to implement this functionality in the Magento store.
