Yes, it happened after importing the category file that the categories are all shown on the admin panel, but nothing shown on my store front. Why? Can you explain this?

After importing, all the categories are shown on the admin panel. And to make those categories appear on the store front, I must check the 'default' in each category on the admin panel ONE BY ONE. And it makes me  tired.

I hope you can help me regarding this.
 
I have attached the csv. files on categories so you can assess whether it is correct or not? or any missing values on it?

Hope for your answer. Thanks.

1. Check that categories and products are enabled
2. Try to clear cache.

These should solve the problem.

Categories and product statuses shown right in listing grid (grey/blue switch). You can flip switch and update all in the list

If you have too many, you can  run new import with just update to the status.

Looking at the contents of this file, I see that it includes a column named "categories.status".  The contents of this column is the number 1 for every row in the file.

I also see a column 'categories_to_stores[0].store_id' - which contains the value '0' for every row.


Should this not have enabled those categories for the default store  to begin with  ???

This is correct. It should have enabled it and it does.

I ran this file and I have all categories enabled.
