Category placement
« on: November 13, 2019, 10:13:09 AM »
I just installed a fresh version 1.2.15  and trying to get the category listing on the left of the page.
Selected Design/Layouts selected home page from the dropdown and added Category to the Column left. However it appears to stay greyed out after i save and won't show on the left.
Below is the information but that doesn't seem to tell me much. Is it possible to get the category listing on the left ?

Block ID
9
Block Text ID
category
Controller
blocks/category
Block Templates :
blocks/category_top.tpl
blocks/category_top.tpl
blocks/category.tpl
blocks/category.tpl
blocks/category_bottom.tpl
blocks/category_bottom.tpl
Block Creation Date

Home Page

Hello
I have done that several times but i did follow all the steps and it still won't show up on the home page or product page after i add it to the left column, as a matter of fact when i add it to the left column and save that block stays greyed out. I notice there is an icon that says enable/disable  which when i select it doesn't do anything so you really don't know if it is enabled or disabled.

By the way, it does show up if i add that block to the header so something is preventing the left column from showing.

Do you have default or 3rd part template?

Hello.
I think you insert wrong block. Data Listing block with Category content inserted without any issue to the left column. Double check your create correct block and insert it to layout
