Add Publisher Categories?

We currently have some physical games, some novels, and we're planning on some digital games in the future. As it stands, we've got a fairly big chunk of things to sort through if someone goes to our publisher page. We also have a lot of small products that all fit in a similar series despite being different types of products. 

Maybe it'd be nice if we could do custom categories on our publisher pages? So when someone goes to the publisher page, they would see "Novels," "Tabletop Games," or "Series Name" instead of a huge one-column list of unrelated products.

This was requested repeatedly in the past, but no clear concept of how it would work emerged. Any suggestions?

In the mean time, one trick you could use would be to tick the "Show games in grid" checkbox at the top of your profile's Edit Theme pane, and reorder your projects so that they fit in one of the three columns according to their type. It's not much, but it might just help for now. Cheers!

TBH? I think maybe the best way to go about it would be a sort of "dummy" product that acts as a folder. With its own name and header image. Clicking it would take you inside

I think I will try the column idea for now. Do you know if it extends to smaller format screens? I imagine it doesn't.

Good point. I'm afraid it all reverts to being one column on small screens. But another recommended solution is to put your own products into collections that you showcase below the main area. That can fit rather more of them, but there's still a limit and doesn't look as good. Also, most of us use collections to showcase games by other people, so that can be a source of confusion. See how it works for you.
