Good day, we are trying to enable the currency dropdown switcher. I know it is included in the basic instalation of Magento,
but we had this disabled by a company (they don’t work for us anymore) and now we need to enable this function again.

Our programmer says, there are some configurable XML in app/design, which he edited acording to default Magento, he also added blocks “currency”, and he added the dropdown into the design itself. But the currency dropdown still isn’t appearing anywhere.
Does anyone have any idea what else needs to be done in order to get this working? Thanks a lot for any sugegstions!

Could be that your exchange rates are not set yet (is cron running and is the currency section of Magento configured to get new exchange rates when cron runs?).

If you have enabled a currency but the currency does not have an exchange rate set yet in the backend, Magento does not show that currency as a choice in the frontend.

If exchange rates are properly set then it’s a matter of comparing XML and PHTML calls of your template to the standard template of Magento.

Good luck!
