StoreFront: Add Application Categories to Favorites Tab

by Sam Jacobs, CTP

A client with two corporate locations published resources with the same name at both sites. They wished to display both versions of each application, but needed to identify the site where each application was published. Not a problem in Apps view, since the category name is displayed together with the application name:

However, if both versions are on the user’s Favorites page, it’s a bit more challenging, because the category doesn’t show up!

That seemed a bit strange, so I opened Developer Tools and found out that the category name is on the page with the application name, but for some reason, StoreFront has been instructed to hide it when on the Favorites tab:

 It’s a simple matter to get it to again appear. Back up the file:


and add the following to the bottom of the file:

 .largeTiles .myapps-view .storeapp-category {
    display: block;

Save the file, and voila!
