WAIT!!!!

I have read the WIKI, Forum, Knowledge Base, etc etc.  and have not found an explanation for this that makes sense or that works.  What is the process here?  I have 300 products in a root > product type > type category and I am not seeing the neat little SHOP BY category box anywhere?

Ideas?

I would love the “simple” answer to this to.  I have categories and the categories show nicely at the top of the Homepage.  However, I can’t figure out how to show the “layered navigation” on the product pages (or homepage).  The screencast on layered navigation is helpful for attributes, but doesn’t cover how to get the layered navigation block to even show up in the first place…

Phipps, I have the same question.  It seems like it should be an easy answer............. we just haven’t figured it out yet. :(

Solution:  got to System -> Manage Stores.
Select your store and then choose a Root Category for the store.  That turned on everything for me.

Solution posted by phipps does not work for me. Did it help anyone else!?

I have only one category with two products, so I went to System>ManageStores and selected my store, and in there I selected the one category i got running with two products… nothing new shows up on my homepage.

If I hit the sitemap, there are no categories showing up, and there are two products (as it should be) if I browse by product… HOWEVER, this does not help navigation if a customer enters the site through homepage and cannot see any navigational aids… something is wrong… but what!?

Didn’t work for me either.

I have a root category selected with many categories and products but no layered navigation on homepage. was able to find info for vertical category navigation with subcategories on homepage.See it here.
