At http://bungerkids.com/boys i can see:
Shop by
Category
1. Tee’s
2. Jeans
3. Hats
Price
1. $0.00 - $100.00
2. $200.00 - $300.00
Manufacturer
1. Quiksilver

are you referring to this category or to the subcategories on it?  (if so make sure you set them as “Is Anchored = Yes") smile

So you are referring to the Sub Categories Tee’s, Jeans and Hats… Did you check on them (on your admin) if they are Anchored?

What you actually need to do to bring up the layered navigation on them is click on each one of the Sub Categories Tee’s, Jeans and Hats on your admin and on the ‘General Information’ tab for each one of them (right at the bottom) on the ‘Is Anchor’ dropdown select Yes and save the changes.
Then go to System>Cache Management and refresh the Layered Navigation Indices, that should be all wink

The Upgrade was done by entering magento-core/Mage_All_Latest extension key?  as described here http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/upgrading_magento

Would it be better to just do a fresh install of magento 1.1.6 and just re-upload all of the css?

Not necessarely, if your theme is correctly set with the upgrade should be good enough. As long as you are aware that if you have customized core files they will be overwritten.

Fixed all of the errors....had to download the latest version of magento, and upload the admin pages that deal with editing the categories and same with the cache management page under system, all is well now....im guessing ill have to upload more admin files in the future when more problems are encountered.

Maybe this should be an upgrade that is available through magento connect? One that updates all existing admin pages, since there are issues after running the suggested upgrades and its really a pretty simple fix.

Anyway thanks for all your help,
Ryan
