This article explains why and how to create a simple category, i.e. a category that does not display a guide listing.
Why would I choose a simple category?
You've created your category and are now debating on whether to display your category in simple or detailed view. Whatever decision you make, consider your users' search experience. Above all you want your users to engage with your site and to look forward to coming back if they have additional questions. You may have to conduct some A/B testing to find out which search experience your users prefer. At the same time, design considerations may inform your choice as well. If you only want a representative image and the title of your category title displayed to your site users, choose the simple category for your top-level navigation:
