Hi all - first post....
I’ve spent the last few days familiarizing myself with magento further, however I need some guidance. (i’m a PHP developer, am familiar with OOP (as in, I can write applications in OOP, have knowledge of a few design patterns, etc))
I need to make one module that will pull products from a specific category and give me the product name, a product link and a specific attribute i’ll be setting for products within the category.
I need a 2nd module that will give me images / links (not necessarily within that same category)
(or one module that takes a category or array of categories as a parameter...)
My main question to you all is what class I need to be extending to make this happen and does anyone have any examples of something similar (I have seen the example of making a featured product module, that’s a good start...I’m not sure how applicable it is to my problem).
Edit: Aditional request - examples of using AJAX within magento ? (http request)
