On home page cms, I have added block as below :

{{block type='page/html' as='homepagecategories' template='page/html/homepagecategories.phtml'}} 

And I am trying to load few of the categories as below

$store = Mage::app()->getStore()->getId(); 
$homeCategoryCollection = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')
foreach($homeCategoryCollection as $cat) {
 //category display output

when I comment foreach block, I am able to see my homepage but if I remove that comment, It gives me following log in system.

2014-03-10T15:07:42+00:00 DEBUG (7): Failed to load template:/mystorepath/default/template/page/html/homepagecategories.phtml

I have created "display_on_home_page" category attribute(dropdown) using extension and I am able to see dropdown in the backend. Any suggestion to move further?


I think the error can't be better:

Failed to load template: /mystorepath/default/template/page/html/homepagecategories.phtml

So either the template doesn't exist or you have a spelling error, maybe uppercase/lowercase problem? Or there is a symlink to the template and you don't allow using symlinks in the backend:

System > Configuration > Developer > Template Settings > Allow Symlinks
  • There won't be any chance of uppercase/lowercase problem, cause template is currently working. I have added above line of codes in it. – Kamal Joshi Mar 11 '14 at 6:37
  • I actually want to know when can this be possible. – Kamal Joshi Mar 11 '14 at 6:39
  • If you comment the foreach block everything is fine? And if you have the foreach block, then you get this error!? Ok, I have NO clue. This doesn't make sense :-/ – Fabian Blechschmidt Mar 11 '14 at 6:44
  • :) $homeCategoryCollection is the main issue over here... – Kamal Joshi Mar 11 '14 at 7:46
