I am using 1.3.8p - I did not 'know' hidecategories should not work for sql 5 - so I have been using it since it came out with every update, and when I did my last upgrade it continued working just fine.
I decided to do a fresh install and migrate the database, but the hidecategories mod is now not working... just like it said it wouldn't... LOL
the weird thing is, my other cart is on the same server/sql/etc... and it is working just fine.
So, has anyone else upgraded and just had hidecategories keep working for them?? if so, I may 'upgrade/update instead of the fresh install... I do love a fresh install though!
