virtuemart products not showing up in category
« on: December 04, 2012, 00:04:27 am »

I have been working on this issue since last saturday and its pretty frustrating!!!!!!!!!! Some of the products are not showing up in the categories I have checked everything for ensuring the correct shopper settings are place and that the they are assigned to the relevant categories. The products in question can be found on theses two links:

Can anybody tell me how to get the products to show up as this is really bugging me!!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated.  :D ;D

Hello Super_duck:

It says you are a beginner so, I will ask you a very obvious question.  I hope you do not misconstrue my intention as I have found that some folks can be a little sensitive about the obvious kinds of questions.    ;)

You are aware that products can be placed in multiple categories, right?

I mention this because it got me when I first began...

So, Product A can be in Non-Clothing and Specials (assuming Non-Clothing and Specials are both categories).  That way they will show up in both categories.

If that is too obvious, why don't you send an image of the product information form, the shopper group form, the category/ies, etc, and we can look at the way you have things defined.  By the way, knowing which versions of Joomla, VM and PHP you are using can be helpful at times.

Again, my apologies if my question was too basic.

Good luck.
