I have a bunch of primary catagorys.

example

Catagory 1 on the nav.

When you click it, goes to the default page “no products listed”

What I want to do is when someone clicks that catagory it goes to a page

Listing all the sub catagorys on the center of the page…

Is that possible? how? I’m a n00b so go easy LOL

Your help is greatly appreciated!

It’s a little confusing…

lol Don’t know if thats what i’m talking about..

What I’m trying to do is:

Professional Video is my primary catagory (if you click that now you will see a camcorder (that resides in sub cat Professional Camcorders) in the center of the page, price etc..)

I would much rather have it so when you click Professional Video, insted of showing the products right there, insted you see all the subcatagorys relating to professional video.

That way I don’t have all the products listing in just the primary…

Dose that make sense? LOL

bare with me haha....

Look for Brendan’s post that starts

hi cathy,

ok this code is used to return the categories onto the home page.

If i understand you correctly you want to have the subcategories returned when your on a category page?

in the thread

http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/14527/P15/

that I posted above. 

From what you have said this should be the answer, it results in sub-categories being listed in the centre of the page, if not I’m not sure what you want.

I tried that but right up to the step where i create the file and place it in:

/httpdocs/store/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/catalog/navigation

I get a permission denied when I try to upload the file Brendan says to create.

I even checked the permission on that dir and its writeable....

:(

Fixed the red X issue.

However its not formatted right or something:

**See attached screen shot**

I wanted them to be side by side and group all the way down as opposed to being 1 column...make sense?

Also it blows up the picture when you click the sub-cat, anyway to scale it down? its a small pic too...don’t know why it stretched it out…
