Category layout showing nothing but description
« on: August 10, 2017, 20:47:13 pm »
Hello

I published a menu category layout for one of my categories and when I go into it only shows me the description of category but doesnt show me any products associated, it does this no matter what category layout i publish,  however the "back to category" button on my product pages shows all the products when i click on it. Any advice on how to fix?

Virtuemart 3.2.2

Thanks

Hi

No customization done, I just installed it  created the categories, linked products to categories and tried to publish but not sure where I went wrong

Have you try to change the used layout for this category?
ONe is here to only display category but not products.
And you have an option to not display product too.

I just wanted to add that the "back to category" button when you go to the product page is clicked it shows all the products on that category it just doesnt work when category layout is used as a menu item

When setting the menu link to the category did you also set the required configuration on the Virtuemart category view settings and the Virtuemart subordinated category view settings tabs?

If you added a menu link to this category, the setting need to be changed in this Joomla menu item and do not forget to check the VIrtuemart config. You have setting for global  category layout and setting too.
