Unable to find this problem explained, so thanks in advance.
I have added multiple stores and they are working ok.
I have assigned existing products to 2 different categories/stores.
They display in store1 but not in the new store2.
If I go to 'manage products' and select store2, no products are listed.
However, if I go to the category and look under 'category products' the products show.
I also configures the cms to show all products on store 2 and again nothing shows.
To clarify, I assigned products under each product, then 'categories' and selected categories from 2 stores.
Any suggestions much appreciated.
Along with assigning to the store views category, you also need to assign it to the website.
Catalog > Manage Product > Select Product > Websites > Choose Website View
Make sure that both websites are selected. Products can be added in to new website in bulk by selection multiple product.
Remember to change the descriptions & titles, unique content is cruicial across websites - especially with Panda 4.2 incoming
