The objective of this psot is to create a page that
returns all the New Arrivals (based on the “Set Product as New from Date” date),
to create a page that returns all the products on Sale
and to create a page that returns the Most Popular (top 12 most sold products).

For example:

http://www.SiteName.com/new-arrivals
http://www.SiteName.com/sales
http://www.SiteName.com/most-popular

Hi,

Can anyone shed some light on the best ways to achieve the above.

Does it require custom templates, plugins or comes out the box.

Thanks
Skully

Thanks,

Will take a look at the plugin and give feedback. Looks like it will work well with showing specific attributes on static pages.

I also found this http://www.magentocommerce.com/module/841/catalog-sale-items

If anyone has more great tips or guides, please share.

Cheers
Skully

I have used this for

<!-- last 6 registered products -->
<!-- <reference name="content">
<block type="catalog/product_homepage" name="home.catalog.product.homepage" alias="product_homepage" template="catalog/product/homepage.phtml" after="cms_page"/>
</reference> -->

<!-- new products -->
<!-- visualized products -->
<!-- compared products -->
<!--
<reference name="content">
<block type="catalog/product_new" name="home.catalog.product.new" alias="product_new" template="catalog/product/new.phtml" after="cms_page"><action method="addPriceBlockType"><type>bundle</type><block>bundle/catalog_product_price</block><template>bundle/catalog/product/price.phtml</template></action></block>
<block type="reports/product_viewed" name="home.reports.product.viewed" alias="product_viewed" template="reports/home_product_viewed.phtml" after="product_new"><action method="addPriceBlockType"><type>bundle</type><block>bundle/catalog_product_price</block><template>bundle/catalog/product/price.phtml</template></action></block>
<block type="reports/product_compared" name="home.reports.product.compared" template="reports/home_product_compared.phtml" after="product_viewed"><action method="addPriceBlockType"><type>bundle</type><block>bundle/catalog_products_price</block><template>bundle/catalog/product/price.phtml</template></action></block>
</reference>
<reference name="right">
<action method="unsetChild"><alias>right.reports.product.viewed</alias></action>
<action method="unsetChild"><alias>right.reports.product.compared</alias></action>
</reference>
-->

<block type="reports/product_visited" name="home.reports.product.visited" alias="product_visited" template="reports/home_product_visited.phtml"></block>

I have not found something similar to most sold products and most visited products, but I am sure there is, because I am able to choose those options at store configuration.
