How To Get Category Listings

I've seemed to of hit a roadblock with my site design. I currently have my template as one page that looks like a multi-framed page by simply using tables to give the allusion that there is a header, navigation and body frame to my site.

Anyway my problem is I can't figure out how to get the left hand navigation that you'd normally see in a shop on cafepress to appear. I've fiddled with the filters you mention on your site, but to no avail so I thought I'd bug you for the answer

If you check out http://www.caferpress.com/quotestuff you'll notice that I have a navigation bar on the left side that has the product categories listed, basically I'd like to transfer that to my CPShop design at http://www.quotestuff.net. Please see the following image for a closer look...





Also, a second thing I'd like changed would be on my first maing page a quotestuff.net I'd like to remove the category listings from the top of the first page, because they wouldn't be needed if and when I can get the left category navigation back... I'm currently using the <[content]> tag in the body area of the page, so is there anyway to filter the categories from the initial page using <[content]> tag? If not, are there any other ways to accomplish this? Please see the next image for a little more info about my goal...



Thanks in advance... any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Ahh, I figured it out... just add the text with an A HREF tag like you normally would and add ?storeid=YOURSTORE.123456 to the end of your cpstore.cgi address.

For example...

I'd still like to know if the second thing I questioned above can be done... removing the categories from the top of the <[content]> view?

Well, generally cpshop just displays the contents of a section, or displays a subset of products.  Usually to prevent certain sections from showing, you make changes to your CafePress store (by hiding those sections).

Actually, that would work.  By hiding the subsections in your CafePress store, you could still access them through your hard-coded links, and then they wouldn't appear in the product grid.
