Magento products not showing in categories

If your Magento products are not showing up in frontend category pages, that can be because one or more of the below points are not done correctly.

The products must have following set correctly to appear in the category pages in frontend. You can check all the below things in Manage Products screen of any individual product.
Status must be Enabled (under General tab)
Visiblility should be Catalog OR Catalog, Search (under General tab)
– Stock Qty (quantity) should be greater than Qty for Item’s Status to Become Out of Stock (under Inventory tab)
Stock Availability must be IN STOCK
Category should be assigned (under Categories tab)
Website must be assigned (under Websites tab)

Clear the cache, re-index the indexes related to product (Product prices, Product flat data and Category products) and everything should work as expected.

This post is written to address the following issue:
magento products not displaying in categories
magento products not showing in categories
magento items not showing in categories
magento products not showing up in categories
magento products not showing under categories
magento products not displaying on category page
magento product images not showing in category
magento configurable product not showing in category
magento new product not showing in category

  • Hi,

    We are recently facing a problem where the products are live on frontend. Can be found in search and are in the ‘new products’ slider. If we click the product from the slider or the search, we reach the product page. However, on the category pages it shows an empty block. We have this phenomenon happening only on magmi bulk uploads and not on single product uploads through magento catalog/manage products/add product. Can you help please/
