    not only, this extension works perfectly, is multilingual and easy to customize labels.
    The cherry on the cake is this Outstanding Support the template master team provided to me.
    My shop has a highly modified homepage and they didn't let me down until they fixed my issue.
    I have to say that for further extensions, I will highly prioritize Template Master to be my choice number 1 !

    when I choose "Show categories listing on homepage", I have to set the categories to "Include in Navigation Menu" in the "Manage Categories", otherwise this category will not display on my homepage, so how about if I need the category to display on homepage but NOT in the top navigation menu?is that possible? would you please provide any solution for that? thank you very much!

    Usually there is issue with write permissions for categories images media folder. Please check that issue first and then if you have enough place on your server.

    1. Your theme is missing some core Magento classes. So you should add to categories li container float left style. 2. I think it's done using css so you should copy same styles to categories listing container.

    There is simply no enough space. I would suggest to reduce margin that you have set for .products-grid li.item margin-right: 11px;
