Having some trouble with some categories. It’s annoyingly weird and I can’t get my head around it.
We’re adding new categories via Store Manager and in the Admin area and they don’t appear in certain parts of the site.
Places they don’t appear
Admin > category manager
Admin > product category manager
Front Page > Sidebar Navigation Menu Pro
Places they DO appear
Front Page > http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/vertical-navigation-with-css-classes.html]Vertnav Menu
Magento Store Manager
That’s the weird thing. Any new categories I create only follow those rules above. I even created a new one directly from the admin, saved it, and it disappeared! It did still appear in the places it should do (I had to delete it via store manager).
One pattern I did notice is that cats with a value greater than 600 are the ones which don’t appear.
I should say though that I do have 10,000 products with 12 store views. Got a feeling the reindexing could have something to do with that.
Additionally additionally, I have tried the negative child count SQL fix.
Can anyone provide any insight here?
