Hello,

How can I display the list of category on the left column?
I just need to be able to display the category list.
I use the 1.5 and the default theme. And this show a sign up to newsletter, a compare product a cart, BUT no category list.

Please I don’t need commercial offer.

Thank you

Look at the code in Mage_Catalog_Block_Navigation and use that as a starter for your own block which you can then reference in your layout files (to place in the left column)

I think the author just wants to display a list of categories, not the products within those categories

It was probably a rookie mistake ...
I created all my categories on the same level of default category. After I moved all this categories under default, all was correct.
