How to display subcategories with images within a category page

Posted on September 24th, 2014 | Posted by admin

As this is not a default Magento feature, because you can use the layered navigation to filter the products by subcategory, to add this feature you will have to create a view file (phtml file) and a static block.

Creating the view file ( .phtml file)

You will have to create .phtml file with this code:

<?php $_maincategorylisting=$this->getCurrentCategory()?>
<?php $_categories=$this->getCurrentChildCategories()?>
<?php if($_categories->count()):?>
<? foreach ($_categories as $_category):?>
<? if($_category->getIsActive()):
$layer = Mage::getSingleton('catalog/layer');
$catName = $this->getCurrentCategory()->getName();
