Hi folks.

I am trying to get a list of the available product categories to appear within column_left.tpl inside search.tpl .

I am using the "Category" module to push this category list to product and category pages, but cannot get the list to show on search.tpl

I have attempted to code it dynamically also, but the variables are not in place within the search controller file. I have also tried to use the classes from the category controller file in order for it to work on the search.tpl file, but to no avail.

Has anybody got a fix for this? or some good advice? :)

Many thanks..

Olly

You need to create a new layout for search page. Follow these steps

1. System->Design->Layouts->Insert
2. Set Layout Name: Search
3. Click Add Route
4. Set Route: product/search
5. Click Save
6. Extensions->Modules->Category->Edit
7. Click Add Module
8. Set Layout: Search and Position: Column Left
9. Click Save

I think that's it.
