Categories not showing up on front end

Recommended Posts

I have just installed Prestashop 1.6 with inmotion hosting. I have cleared out all of the default stuff that I don't want and I've created a category. However all I see on the front page is the blog button, where the default categories used to be. See the attached picture. How do I get the categories to show up?

Hello Isaacm,

 

You need to go to Modules > Front Office Features tab and find 'Top Horizontal Menu' module . Click configure to open the module.

 

This will take you to the module page. Search forthe categories you created in the "Available items" box and add them to the "Selected items" box. Don't forget to remove items you don't want in the "Selected items" box. Save and reload your front office.

 

This should make your categories appear at the top menu.

 

Try it out.

I'm having a very similar problem after upgrading to the 1.6 version. I had abou 10 categories but none show on the home page (default theme) and when I go to edit categories in the admin it shows that I have Zero categories, however the icons above indicate that I have 1 empty category and a top category and it is displaying the correct category name.  And that I have an average of 5 products per category.

 

So my categories are still there, but something it preventing them from being found.  Perhaps someone can explain how the system pulls category info from the database so we can have a clue as to how to resolve these problems.  How is the total number of categories displayed on the admin page get generated?  One would think it just looks at the categories table in the database, but apparently not.

Do you know where is the problem and how ca

Hi Vekia

The prices are  not showing on the front page http://rosieposy.fr/PrestaShop/en/ I have no clue how to fix the prices not showing. The prices show once you click the product. Some products show the price and others don't , can't figure out why.

Thanks for any suggestions. 

Kind regards

Len

Yes, in the version of the shop that I did no updates on.  The other installation that failed to update misserably the categories were all there but I could not see or edit them in the admin now did they show for site visitors, but if the visitor did a search product would show up as being in one of the previously defined categories.  That shop has now been changed to different software.  So, back to the original installation that has never been updated since it's install and which is the one I've been talking about here for the most part.  You can view the shop at http://www.itdrtw.com if you wish. Everything works as expected except the association to existing product for download tends to disappear.  People then make a purchase and can't download the product.  I've "fixed" this by manually editing the file name(s) in phpmyadmin only to have it break again later.  It's really weird behavior.

Look at the very first answer for your answer to that question.  The man explains it very well.  I was having this same problem as well.  But since reading that I was able to fix it. 

 

Now the problem I am having, is how do I get my items to show up UNDER their CATEGORY?
