Category display in navigation bar

Hi,

 

I was used to Magento Platform 1.14 where we could select which categories to display in navigation bar as well as sub categories.

I would go in each category page in Magento and select whether it would be visible in navigation etc.

 

I am now working on Magento 1.9.2 but it seems it doesn't work the same way anymore - I have tried to see if its due to an extension but doesn't seem like so (new website & company).

 

Any advice of where this can be changed?

 

Many thanks

@mctops Yes there are some modification om previous old and 1.9.2 version. I believe you want to show categories into navigation bar, if so you need to do below settings:

1. Create sub categories of your root category.

2. Set "Is Active" as Yes

3. Set "Include in Navigation Menu" as Yes.

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Indeed, that's how I used to do it with the previous version but it doesn't seem to work the same way with this one. Ex - most categories are set to "No" in "Include in Navigation menu" and it still displays on live so clearly not working the same way.

Please do reindex all indexer, clear cache and check again!

Thanks for your help - indeed I was flushing cache but not cache storage - once I did this, the modifications finally appeared.

 

Thanks!
