How to copy categories in Zen-Cart admin panel?

Unfortunately the original Zen-Cart doesn't allows to copy categories, it has move ability. Although it allows to copy products. The attached files add copying ability for categories. It allows to copy a whole directory tree with all children. The extension was tested with Zen-Cart 1.3.0.
Just install and use.
If you need some customization don't hesitate to ask.

Have you tested this fix with other versions of ZenCart?

I'm looking to create categories filled with other (already) created categories, in other words: groups of existing categories. Is your fix/mod adequate for this situation?

I tested it only with Zen-Cart v.1.3
Yes, it is adequate for your situation.

Just create new category and copy the existing category tree.
I kindly ask you to ensure that you made the backup before making any changes.

Thank you ptalus, it seems to work with Zen Cart 1.3.8a.

Unfortunatly, I was looking for a patch that copies the categories AND the products in those categories (I suppose as linked products).

Any chance you have something like that?

You can copy products in Zen-cart admin panel. I wrote my plugin to copy only category tree. But I could create new plugin for small fee if you would like.

Zen cart is amazing, it is easy to use and install, anyone with a basic computer knowledge can install it. I tested this with Zen Cart 1.3.0 and it worked completely fine without any failure.
