Can anybody tell me if its possible to view my all my categories in the left column on the home page?

Being searching and trying things for a while, but still have not being able to get it working.

Tried this code, but its not showing anything. (added it in the editor)

 {{block type="catalog/product_list" name="home.catalog.product.list"
 alias="products_homepage" category_id="2"

Did you add the block to System->Permissions->Blocks ? If not, you must add and enable 'catalog/product_list'!


I found out a tutorial in Inchoo

You can take it as a reference


I hope it is useful for you
