Product Filters On Upper Categories

So I’ve set up filters and features tons of times, but for some reason I’m having troubles on a client’s site.

I have the features and filters set up and they display on the product listing page (lowest category page), but I can’t get the filters to display on the upper categories.

She has categories like:

Main Cat => Subcat 1 => Subcat 2 => Product Listing Page

Like I said, I can get them to work fine on the product listing page, but not Main Cat, Subcat 1, or Subcat 2.

I have the filters and features to display on all categories. I also have the features set to display on the catalog and product pages.

The block is set to original and dynamic and is for all categories.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Did you ever find a fix for this? I'm experiencing the same issue. Unless the direct category has the products in it, it won't filter. When I have a parent category that has no direct products but only subcategories, the filter menu wont even show.

I know it's a kinda old thread but I just posted a new thread explaining, that for some (currently) unknown reason so far, the filter block has been disabled from each category, so you have to manually enter each category, go to its blocks and re-enable the filters block. At least this was the problem in my case…


I face the same situation.

someone found the solution?
