Menu Item Typ "Category" - shows the shop start page, not the category

Hi, I tried to create a menu item for each category of my online shop. I followed the tutorial from webdesigner in the documentation (http://www.webdesigner-profi.de/joomla-webdesign/joomla-shop/forum/posts/7/955.html#2)

"Link to 1 category

Menu Item Type: Category
Show: Category or Manufacturer or Static
Set Category id

JoomShopping 3.7.2
For each category of store you can create a menu item."

Unfortunately it doesn't works in my backend. I can create the menu item and the links (for them I use the category IDs), but in the front end when I then click on the links in the new menu, it will always direct me to the shop start page with the overview of ALL categories. That is not what I want.

What do I have to put into the settings for each link (in the menu item) to make it work? I created the menu item, i created the module and connected it with the menu item, then i went back to the menu item and created the menu links using the category IDs like explained in webdesigners documentation. Did I miss a step in the settings?

Cheers

PS: Joomshopping is 3.11.4 which should do the job for that task, doesn't it?

I realised - when I created the menu items - that the menu type shows "Products" although I clicked on "Category", which is underlined as you can see:

It doesn't show "Category" doesn't matter what I do. Don't know if this is right.

The module has been created and activated. I'll show you in the next article what I see when I publish everything

Here a screenshot from the current shop page with the shop menu and well working category links. I want to create some category menus to make the handling of the shop a bit more user friendly. ...

Yes, SEF is installed and activated.

Url: www.stichezauber.de

It's a live page, so the menu items that doesn't works are not activated.

Thanks.

Are there any solutions available, any tips or hints?

Or is it only possible (if so) with a pay menue? If so, which one would help me to create what I try to do?
