Category displays only 1 product REPEATEDLY
« on: May 05, 2010, 16:36:02 pm »
Category is displaying only 1 product from that category but displaying it repeatedly.

Ex:  I have 8 products under 1 category, on the front end the page displays 8 store items but all the same product.

This is happening for ALL categories and the product that displays is often random - either products from another category OR one of the first products from the category.

"Sort" fields give the same results - it will resort by alpha, price, etc - but fills all product summaries/descriptions with the same product.

Everything has been fine - this happened all of a sudden - can anyone tell me where to look and for what to determine what may be causing the issue and how to correct it?

I am *not* a programmer but have access to one - I just need a good starting point.

Anyone out there with ideas to help out a VM uber-dork?

Try turning off the Joomla cache. It is is Joomla configuration/system/Cache Settings.
Although this does not actually fit with something that suddenly happens it has been known to cause a problem like you describe.

Thanks, K - that did the trick.

Login module doesn't work now but that's been an easy fix in the past.

I appreciate the help.
