Help! My layered navigation on the left bar works, showing number of products in each category correctly. The attribute filter also works. But if any category on the left is clicked, there is no product showing in the content area.

I copied some code and put it in Layout Update XML:

<reference name="left">
     <block type="catalog/layer_view" name="catalog.leftnav" before="-" template="catalog/layer/view.phtml"/>

<reference name="content">
    <block type="catalog/product_list" name="home" template="catalog/product/list.phtml">
        <action method="setCategoryId"><category_id>14</category_id></action>
        <block type="catalog/product_list_toolbar" name="product_list_toolbar" template="catalog/product/list/toolbar.phtml">
                        <block type="page/html_pager" name="product_list_toolbar_pager"/>
        <action method="setToolbarBlockName"><name>product_list_toolbar</name></action>
