Hello

In the admin there’s an option where i can define the cms-page that shows on homepage. But i want directly display a category on the shop-homepage. How can I redirect the root to the category.

Example: Redirect “/” to Category “/test” with the category ID 123.

It works with e meta refresh - but thats no e good solution grin

Thank you for your help.

Raffi

Enter the following code in your cms - page:

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="2" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

change the category_id as appropriate.

regards,

Mike
