Hi,
I have installed magento and added categories and products to the categories. But when I’m entering the frontend I cant find my categories and products. If i search for my products using the serach form in the top right corner then i can find them.
Why don’t I see the categories??

Probably the classic mistake of not selectiong a store view when you setup your categories.  I did it a 1000 times when I first started.  I guess its still the same, in upper left of categoroy page there s/b a dropdown list where you can select the store view you want the category to be in.  Show a screen print of a category setup page if this doesn’t help.

I’m still a bit confused about the issue, but everthing I do now, I mkake sure of that, and it seems to work. smile

EDIT: Also remember in the cateogory setup there is a field called “Is Active” and that must be set to Yes of course and each product alsho has an Status of Enabled or not, as well as Iin Stock etc.
