Ive changed a category to be an anchor category, but the products beneath this category are not showing on the category in list view as expected. What am I missing? Other categories marked as anchor ARE showing products.

  • Did you reindex after the changes? – pontikos Sep 12 '16 at 20:12
  • Yes, and flushed cache. – Kim R. Sep 12 '16 at 23:57
  • What do you mean by "products beneath this category"? The products in this category or the products in this category's subcategories? – Yiorgos Moschovitis Sep 13 '16 at 9:40
  • Do you see the products if the category is not anchor? – Amasty Sep 13 '16 at 11:45

This Might be issue of below setting, please check below setting and let me know if you still face issue


catalog->category->click on your category->display setting->displaymode

and change this setting to Products only and then clear cache and try again.


Pontikos, it was a reindex problem! Normally magento tells me when something needs to be reindexed. In this case when I checked the indexes they were all green so I hadn't actually reindex anything. But when I did a "select all" for the indexes and just did a reindex anyway, it worked. Thanks for your time everyone.
