After searching online, I found this approach to my problem of showing subcategories inside the category page. The above solution states to create a custom module, and then reference it with a cms-code.

So I created a static block with the reference cms-code inside it, and I added the block in a category, using the dropdown menu.

The module seems to work (I inspected the page and I can see there are <ul></ul> html tags), but no list of subcategories is visible.

What am i missing?

Thank you

  • Do you have flat categories enabled in the backend?

  • @Bram No I haven't, but I am thinking of enabling them. Why? May 8, 2018 at 6:16
  • Well, I've tried to achieve the same a while back but this did not work while using flat categories. But you don't have that enabled, otherwise that maybe could've been the cause.

  • Nope, unfortunately I did not. Topics opened by other users on stack could not help me
