I\\\’m wanting to display a static block on my products page that has a list/links of my categories so if someone is vexing a product in category 1 they have easy access to category 2,3,4 etc. How would I go about making the static block without doing it manually with html?

For my own page I created an image for each product category and then added links to that image. I did this for each category. Its a lot of work. But this is the one way I found a work around with my theme. Once you have set up the static blocks you then need to set them in the Manage Categories section.

Hope that helps.
