I'm using magento 1.9 with molly theme. I added sub-category static blocks on category pages(reference:https://www.templatemonster.com/help/magento-listing-sub-categories-on-a-category-page.html#gref). I have selected the display option for category as ' static and products '

For some reason, one category page shows all products but another doesn't show any or only 1 or 2 products.

Below are the links to refer:




I have checked the products are added in desired category also did reindexing after adding products and cache is disabled.

Please help to resolve this issue.

  • What is the code that you have inserted in your cms page to display a category ?

Check if Is Anchor -YES for those categories that are not showing products.

The first thing I would do is to compare your power.html (because this seems to be the one that is working correctly) category against the ones that are not working.

'catalog/layer' is for layered navigation, to use layered navigation your categories need to be Is Anchor -> Yes.


You need to ensure the following:

1) the product is assigned to a category

2) the product is assigned to a store view.

3) the product status is In Stock

4) the product has a qty assigned

5) Product status should not be disable.

6) product visibility is set to catalog-search

Once this has been done, flush the store cache and do reindexing the product will appear.

  • I have checked the above points but still no luck. I think the code given for subcategory listing in templatemonster.com/help/… is wrong, because if i change the code, it works fine. Commented Feb 17, 2017 at 9:25
