How to get all Category boxes showing
« on: January 07, 2021, 15:39:48 pm »
I want to get all the main category boxes showing across all the subcategories but can only get them to show on the shop "home" page and the main category.

In the menus I have

"Virtuemart category view settings" Show categories YES
"Virtuemart subordinated category settings" Show categories YES

How do I make the main level 1 categories show on every page please?

OK so you are suggesting that this isn't possible in VM without an extension which surprises me as it seems like something that many would want?
Looking at your extensions which one would I need, I don't see one that is obvious?

No,

for list of category we use standard core module VirtueMart Category with layout wall.
Position for this module in template we create self - normal process in Joomla
Layout for this module we modified self - standard process in Joomla
