HOW TO ADD AN ADD-ON TO A MAIN CATEGORY

There are quite a few of you asking how you to add a newly downloaded add-on to one of the main categories on your main menu navigation. We recently did a guide on how to add an add-on to the smart menu under the category. However doing does not add that add-on to the main category it only populates the smart menu. What we’re wanting to do now is add an add-on to the parent category so when you press enter on MOVIES, SPORTS, MUSIC.. etc your new add-on will be included in the category list.

Example scenario..

I have just installed the REAL SPORTS STREAMS add on to my Prometheus and I am wanting to add it to my SPORTS main category on the navigation bar so when I press enter on the keyboard on SPORTS the REAL SPORTS STREAMS add-on is there for me to quickly access.

So, here’s how to do this….

STEP 1. SCROLL OVER TO YOUR ADD-ONS TAB (IF YOU HAVE NOT CREATED A SHORTCUT TO YOUR ADD-ONS, THEN ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS SIMPLY HIT THE DOWN ARROW ON YOUR KEYBOARD AND SCROLL DOWN TO VIDEO ADD-ONS AND CLICK ENTER).

STEP 2. SCROLL DOWN TO CATEGORIES AND CLICK ENTER.

STEP 3. HERE YOU WILL SEE ALL THE CATEGORIES WHICH ARE CURRENTLY IN THE NAVIGATION, CLICK ON ALL ADD-ONS.

STEP 4. SCROLL THROUGH THE ADD-ON TILL YOU FIND THE ONE YOU WANT TO ADD TO A CATEGORY, THEN CLICK THE C BUTTON ON YOUR KEYBOARD TO BRING UP THE CONTEXT MENU.

STEP 5. CLICK ON ADD TO CATEGORY.

STEP 5. SCROLL TO THE CATEGORY YOU WANT TO ADD TO AND CLICK ENTER.

STEP 6. YOU CAN NOW EXIT OUT AND RETURN TO THE MAIN MENU. SCROLL OVER TO THE CATEGORY YOU HAVE JUST PLACED YOUR NEW ADD-ON, IN THIS CASE IT WAS SPORTS AND OPEN UP THE CATEGORY.

STEP 7. IF DONE CORRECTLY, THE NEW ADD-ON WILL NOW BE SAT NICELY IN YOUR CATEGORY.

Job done! Enjoy.
