I'm using this code

{{block type="catalog/product_new" name="home.catalog.product.new" column_count="3" products_count="8" alias="product_homepage" template="catalog/product/new.phtml"}}

to display new products on category page. I have added the code in static block and call from category, but when I go to the category the layered navigation is not showing. Is it possible when in 2column-left presentation the navigation be shown for the new listed products.

  • mike??is it is working or not??

Make sure the category has is anchor turned on in the backend. This will make the layered navigation bar appear. However the layered navigation will only work on products in that category. I think it will ignore products outputted from a static block.

  • I already have but nothing is changed the layred navigation is not showing

Check your module's xml layout as well as layered navigation xml layout file file for reference name where layered navigation is included if it is included in so it will not be display on 2 column left category view page.

  • *If it is included in reference name=right it won't display Mar 15, 2014 at 12:05
