Re: Default Category 0

Hello , @Stefy i am also user,

In Magento 2, the product count displayed next to the category name in the admin panel is automatically updated based on the products associated with that category. However, in some cases, the product count might not update correctly due to various reasons, including indexing issues or caching.

To ensure that the product count is accurate for the "Default Category (ID: 2)," you can try the following steps:

Reindex Data: Reindexing the data can help update the product count for categories. To do this, go to the Magento admin panel, navigate to System > Index Management, and then click on the "Select All" checkbox. After that, click on the "Submit" button to reindex all data.

Clear Cache: Clearing the cache can also resolve display issues. Go to System > Cache Management, and then click on the "Flush Magento Cache" and "Flush Cache Storage" buttons.

Check Product Associations: Double-check that all 12400 products are correctly associated with the "Default Category (ID: 2)." If some products are not correctly linked, you can edit the product and ensure they are assigned to the correct category.

Check for Customizations: If your Magento installation has any customizations or third-party extensions that affect category product counts, review them to ensure they are not interfering with the product count display.

Database Integrity: In rare cases, database inconsistencies can cause issues with product counts. You can run database repair tools or contact Magento support for assistance with database integrity checks.

Upgrade Magento: Ensure that you are using the latest version of Magento, as newer versions often come with bug fixes and improvements that may address such issues.

After performing these steps, the product count for the "Default Category (ID: 2)" should update to reflect the correct count of 12400 products. If the issue persists, consider reaching out to Magento support or community forums for further assistance and troubleshooting.


I hope That you are like my answer i always try to give my best Thank you,

Re: Default Category 0

  1. Assign Products to the Default Category: Go to the Magento Admin Panel and navigate to Catalog > Products. Here, you'll see a list of all your products. Select the products you want to assign to the "Default Category" by checking the boxes next to their names.

  2. Update the Categories for Selected Products: After selecting the products, click on the "Update Attributes" dropdown and choose "Update Categories."

  3. Assign Products to the Default Category: In the "Update Categories" dialog box, you should see a list of your store's categories. Find and select the "Default Category" from the list to assign the selected products to it. Make sure that the "Default Category" checkbox is checked for all the products.

  4. Save the Changes: Once you have selected the "Default Category" for the products, click on the "Save" button to save the changes. The selected products are now assigned to the "Default Category."

After completing the above steps, the product count for the "Default Category" should update automatically to reflect the number of products assigned to it.

However, if you find that the count still shows 0, it's possible that there is an issue with the category indexing. To resolve this, you can try reindexing the category data. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Magento Admin Panel and navigate to System > Tools > Index Management.

  2. Find the "Category Products" index and mark the checkbox next to it.

  3. From the "Actions" dropdown at the top, select "Reindex" and click on the "Submit" button.

The reindexing process may take some time, depending on the number of products in your catalog. After the reindexing is complete, refresh the category page, and the product count for the "Default Category" should now be updated correctly.

Remember to always take a backup of your database before making significant changes to your Magento store.
