I’m also having some slight buggy issues with the left nav for Categories. Some of the category pages are displaying the wrong sub categories. If I visit my “Folder Sealer” category, I see the category “paper folders”. Also, sometimes the links don’t work, they just add a “#” to the url. The animation “drawer” effect doesn’t slide up and down when the arrow is clicked either.
One other issue I’m having might be in the Magento settings, but some of my pages are displaying categories twice, once in the “Shop By” layered navigation and once in the category section. Is there a way to only display the category section and remove these in the “shop by” section?
Resolved my Previous Post:
I also found out that the Shop By categories disappeared when I set that category to be an “anchor” within the category options.
For the third problem, I found that playing with the “Visible in Navigation” option inside the category options allowed me to display all the categories in the left nav.
