I know this is more of a Joomanager question but I wasn't able to find anything in that sites support forums about this and the problem is replicated on the Shape5 site so I figured, well I guess I'll just ask you guys.
Pretty common to have a category where it only contains other categories right?
Well turns out since these top level categories can have items in them alongside other categories, if all they contain are other categories, a message appears at the bottom that says "This Category Has no Items Added" even though a sub category actually does have items added.
You can replicate this with the following steps.
Go to the template
Click on "For Sale" for instance but any category does it.
8 subcategories are listed. These subcategories have 3 items across all 8 of them, yet "For Sale" category lists 0.
On the page where all of the subcategories are, at the bottom it says "This Category Has no Items Added" which seems like the last thing I would want to say after listing all of the brands/sub groups/whatever I have to offer!
