I recently upgraded Magento from 1.3 to 1.7 - everything appears to be working fine but there is a little issue.
I am unable to view my category on front page. I am displaying all my categories on a custom page and this function
Mage::helper('catalog/category')->getStoreCategories(); isn't working
- it returns
I know I can use the category collection methods to retrieve all my categories but my question is why this function returns
null, despite the fact I have over 100 categories in my store.
