      I’d like to make my navigation like this: There would be also navigation in left sidebar all the time. I know that “shop by” category will appear when i go to catalog, but what i need to do to make category visible all the time?

      Best regards, Jani

      Hello Jani,
      we can’t provide Support for a custom service.
      You need to go to layout/catalog.xml and in <reference name=”left”> or <reference name=”right”> you need to add the navigation block. Something like this:
      <reference name=”left”>

      <block type=”catalogsearch/layer” name=”catalogsearch.leftnav” after=”currency” template=”catalog/layer/view.phtml”/>


      Hope it helps.
      Best regards.
