Homepage And Product Pages Working But Not Category Pages

Hi guys

I've restored my website today. Everything is working fine apart from the cateogory pages.

If you click the products from the home page they work, as does the homepage etc.

Category pages arent displaying but in the backend they have products in them.

Any ideas?


Try to check if the Categories layout is not deleted in the block manager

The layout etc is all still correct and present in block manager. The pages (e/g Genuine, Branded Products from Apple, Samsung, Sony and more!) just displays a white page.

Please replace

ini_set('display_errors', 0);


ini_set('display_errors', 1);
define('DEVELOPMENT', true);

in the config.local.php file. The error message should be displayed

This is the error

Fatal error: Uncaught → Smarty: Invalid compiled template for 'blocks/product_filters/original.tpl' ← thrown in /home/digitalsaveadmin/public_html/app/lib/other/smarty/sysplugins/smarty_internal_templatebase.php on line 176

I’ve also worked out that its only cateogry that have a product or sub category inside them.

The sub cateorgy Sat Navs currently has no products in and the page displays.

Try to delete the “var/cache” directory manually

I did have two directories in var called cache and one called cache_

I've just deleted cache_ but that didn't work. Should I delete the other one as well? What should I do after?

I deleted the other and it worked, thanks again eCom!

You are welcome! Only the “cache” directory is used by the system, “cache_” is non-standard directory.
