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?

  • Yes, and flushed cache.

  • What do you mean by "products beneath this category"? The products in this category or the products in this category's subcategories? Commented Sep 13, 2016 at 9:40
  • Do you see the products if the category is not anchor?

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.
