i’m an experienced programmer, but new in magento.

Can somebody please link me to a beginners guide to setup a category list vertical in left column in 3-column layout, preferreably a tree view of the category hierarchy. And it should be based on the default package and layout 1.2.1.1

i’ve read a lot on this homepage, but havent found a solution yet.

I just installed a completely fresh magento with sample data, 1.2.11 - and then i installed that extension, and it didnt turn up - except when i choose a category! And i have removed the caching. Is that because vertnav references to a “left” that doesnt exists? Where do i find the layout file for the “left” column?

How do i enable that category view to be on the frontpage BEFORE any category is selected?

Hi,
I attached my vertnav.xml so try with this one. I commented the following lines:

<reference name="top.menu">
            <
remove name="catalog.topnav"/>
</
reference>

Ok, that turns the category navigation on on the home page at the top. Suppose you want it on the left like the other pages?
