in the Magento admin panel, while entering to menu item: catalog / manage categories, I’m receiving the following error:

“Fatal error: Call to undefined method Mage_Catalog_Model_Config::getAttributesUsedForSortBy() in
/home/mystore/public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Model/Category/Attribute/Source/Sortby.php on
line 59”

the store is still under constructions and is not on-line yet.

What is your Magento version ?
Can you post here a screenshot of your Magento Connect Manager page ?

This just happened to me to. Running Version 1.2.0.3 however “attempted” to upgrade to 1.3.1 - it did not work so we reverted back. We now have this error and had another error related to google checkout that was fixed by someone else on the forum who had same issue (created attribute called disable_googlecart.

For some reason, the backup of my homedir did not work, but luckily the backup of my database did take. So, actually, what version am I really running??? Everything else works fine though, but cannot manage category. This file did not exist in 1.2.0.3.

If I do a manual upload all the files, what are the files I need to not update? Does that make sense?

Hi,
I am getting this error in 1.3.2.3 when I go to Admin/ Catalog/ Manage Catalog

Fatal error: Call to undefined method Mage_Core_Model_App::getGroups() in /home/bikesfor/public_html/thepatchshop.com.au/app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Catalog/Category/Abstract.php on line 195

I will be a major problem next week, when I get in trouble for not adding the 30 new products we have.

Cheers

Ron
