Hi,

I am using OSCommerce and have a list of "Categories" on the left side of my main home page.

The categories allow me to "DRILL" down to lower levels until I can see all the products at the lowest level.

However, due to some change, when I DRILL down to the lowest level - the products NO longer display.   i.e. nothing happens at the lowest level.  WHY?

Do they have any stock set?
Did they show before you changed the stock options in the previous question?

Yes, there are 2,000 stock items visible and orders can be placed.  It is not a live system yet.

Importantly .... when I use the "Advanced Search" this allows me to specify a "category" and search string.

This WORKS and shows only the products in the chosen category.

Reminder: It is the category drill down on the home page that fails.

Two other points;

1. Apparently this drill down worked before.
2. I believe that a colleague of mine may have changed the first page displayed upon login to "MY Account" .... this could be a factor??

And it is only on the home page?  Does it work on other pages fine?

The category drill down only goes down the tree of categories but does NOT show products - This happens on ALL pages.

Okay .....

Strictly speaking ...

My colleague resolved this problem by changing the "Home" page back to its original setting
