Hi

It looks like the category railways-clothing is defines as anchor, thus causing the layered navigation to appear.
Just try changing the display settings for this category in the admin.

See the part about anchors here: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/welcome_to_the_magento_user_s_guide/chapter_3#creating_categories
and here http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/welcome_to_the_magento_user_s_guide/chapter_3#layered_navigation

Good luck

Claudia

Hi

Sorry, I can’t help you there. If this would be my server I most likely would add some judicious logging to some points (e.g. in the controller, in the main block or so) to see how far the request goes before it stalls. But I am really new to Magneto so I lack the experience to give you any tips on how to debug this. BTW: For me none of the categories work (I tried the used cars and the MOT stuff

BTW: It might be better to open a new thread on this problem as it is not related to the previous one at all.
