I managed to get sub-categories showing on the category page with images, but now since updating up to it no longer works. I cant imagine what may have changed and haven't altered anything.

Looks like the block code:

{{block type="catalog/navigation" template="catalog/navigation/subcategory_listing.phtml"}}
