In 1.8 override function _getProductCollection doesn’t work
Since as I have done upgrade Magento form 220.127.116.11 to 1.8 I can’t override class Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List (any function in this class).
In 1.7 version it’s working without problem. In 1.8 doesn’t work and doesn’t display any error or warning. Just see no products in category.
Other classes (blocks) may be override without problem.
