Hi, we're in the process of upgrading for 2.4.1 to 2.5.4. 

In 2.4.1, we have a link in the Browse By menu on the homepage to the Genre taxonomy. (see here:  We use this taxonomy fairly heavily for one of our collections, re-named as Garment Type. I had some difficulty getting this on to the menu originally as I couldn't work out what to put in the Path field but eventually, through trial and error, managed to get it to work with "taxonomy/browse?id=78".

In 2.5.4, this link now just takes me to the /taxonomy/list page. Without going through the same trial and error process again, is there some way of finding out what I should be putting in the Path field in order to link this, or any other taxonomy, from the Browse By menu?

Many thanks in advance,

Hi Anna, 

I can't remember the details now, but I do recall that this ended up changing as part of addressing a bug. In any case, you should now be able to use /genre as the path - I successfully used the following in the public demo site (2.6.4): 


Hope that helps!
