Subcategories Not Showing
From Joomla! Documentation
Why are subcategories not showing on drill downs?
In some category views subcategory information is not showing but they did prior to updating. This seems to be the case specifically when there is not a direct menu link to the category view displaying the subcategories.
What is the cause
No cause has been cited yet.
How to fix
To fix the display there are several options depending on your situation.
- Go to the menu link from which the drill down is reached. In that link change "Show Empty Subcategories" to "Show."
- Change the global com_content settings for "Show Empty Subcategories" to "Show."
- Make a direct menu link with the settings you want.
- Make a layout override to use in that context that manages the show_empty_categories parameter as you prefer it to be handled for that page.
