Subcategories Not Showing in Navigation Menu

Subcategories Not Showing in Navigation Menu

Hi,

 

I've got some problems with subcategories that don't shows up in the Navigation Menu...

All settings like "Is Active" and "include in navigation menu" are set on Yes/Enabled.

I really don't know what to do...

 

Thank You

Andrea

Hi @AndreCamp 

 

If you are using the deafult menu structure, you can check two things. First of all the obvious, clear Block Cache. Secoundly check in the admin under:

 

System > Configuration > Catalog > Category Top Navigation > Maximal Depth

 

Check that this is either 0 or higher then what level of subcategories you have.

 

If you are using a custome menu module, could specific which one?

Hi @Theis Corfixen 

 

The Maximal Depth is fine and caches as well...

I'm using the theme Blanco from 8theme but i don't know if it use a custom menu module, how can i find out?

Hi @AndreCamp 

 

The easy way would be turning on template hints and seeing of the navigation template is the default one, and what block is rendering the template it points to :-)

Re: Subcategories Not Showing in Navigation Menu

Hi @Theis Corfixen 

 

Yes, it points to a  custom module.

I've found the file(.../navigation/top.phtml) but honestly I really don't know what to do...

Hi  @Theis Corfixen 

 

 

I've just tried to set the default theme and I've got the same problem, subcategories don't want to show...

 

Re: Subcategories Not Showing in Navigation Menu

Hi @AndreCamp 

 

What block is controlling the navigation template? You can check this by printing <?php echo get_class($this); ?> inside the template file.

Re: Subcategories Not Showing in Navigation Menu

Hi @Theis Corfixen 

 

This is the output:  Mage_Catalog_Block_Navigation

 

Re: Subcategories Not Showing in Navigation Menu

Hi @AndreCamp 

 

What version of Magento are you using?

 

For newer versions of Magento this should be: Mage_Page_Block_Html_Topmenu controllering the top navigation by default.

Hi @Theis Corfixen 

 

I'm using the 1.9.0.1 version of Magento, so how can I fix this?
