Left sidebar in Category View not appear

I use ultimo 1.15.2. In home page I can enable/disable this left sidebar by going through: System -> Configuration ->Infortis Extensions -> Menu -> Sidebar Menu  -- and choose the option i want for Home page(Left sidebar), but I want also to enable it for Category View (Left Sidebar), so i've chosen Enable for it. Unfortunately when I click on a category and it send me to Category View page this left sidebar do not appear.

Home page:homepage.png

Category View page: Category View.png

PS: Sorry for bad english.


Re: Left sidebar in Category View not appear

Hi Nirei

You can see that, layout handle for default categories catalog_category_default actually defines a left section. It looks like this.

File;- app/design/frontend/base/default/layout/catalog.xml

<catalog_category_default translate="label">
    <label>Catalog Category (Non-Anchor)</label>
    <reference name="left">
        <block type="catalog/navigation" name="catalog.leftnav" after="currency" template="catalog/navigation/left.phtml"/>

This means it uses the block of type catalog/navigation in the left section. This block is actually responsible for the left content that you are viewing in a default category
