1 product category to go straight to product

Would love if Magento skipped the category page if the category only has 1 product in it.

1 less click is always better,

Had a good look but am pretty sure there is no setting for this in the admin area.

Hey Consofas,

Sorry for resurrecting an old post, but did you ever figure out or come across a solution for this by any chance?

I also need a feature of this nature. I figured there would be a simple hack available.

I’ll have to look into magento connect. Please post when this is done!

Thank you. smile

This extension is ready.  grin
I’ve found out that it is very easy to redirect a user to the product page if there’s only one product in the category.

I can share either instructions or the extension.

PM me

Perhaps a nice smiley face could entice you to do both - share instructions as well as extension? cheese

Just wanted to say that the extension works well if there is only 1 product in the category, but if you have a few products but only 1 enabled then it doesn’t redirect as you would expect. I have rewritten this extension to provide the perfect solution. Please keep an eye out for tweakmag_productredirect which I will be uploading shortly (free)

Hi Adam,

i installed your extension on my local shop.
but it doesn’t work. i use the magento version 1.2.1.2.

there is only one active bundle product in the category.

Can you tell me the preferences for the category?

Thanks for help.

Greetings

Hi,

can anyone please tell me how to use this feature: http://www.magentocommerce.com/extension/1455/single-product-category-redirect

I have a category, with a subcategory which only contains one product. When category is clicked, it takes user to a static block for them to select a product, and directly to it.

However, when a product is clicked in the subcategory, the page takes user to a grid with only one product. I would like user to be redirected straight to product from subcategory.

I have downloaded the above extension, but cannot work out how to bypass the category list.

Thanks you!
