How stop every product from being listed in category page?

I do not have any products assigned to a particular category and yet that same category will list all the products in the store.

It says "There are no products to list in this category."

What could cause this?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thanks for your response. Sorry about that. OpenCart 2.0

At first the products were being listed twice. I removed all references of the products being tied to a category. Now all products are listed once on category page. They should not be listed at all.

I found this:

I am examining category.php and category.tpl

OC 1.5 had same problem, but 2.0 code in category.php slightly different. I am affraid to change it; not sure how this might effect OC elsewhere.
