Hello! I have been looking for this answer for days and It seems that nobody has had the same problem before.

I don’t think it would be something that silly to do or that difficult (maybe it is I dont know!!)

The thing is that at the moment we just have a product in our shop and therefore I want people to access directly to my product page, kind of a landing page with everything there.. So the easiest way to do that, or that is what I tought, is to redirect index to that specific product page. Once we have more products I would revert the situation as it was before.

If you have any suggestions of how can achieve that in some other way I would be more than happy to read them!

Well thank you in advance!

Isa.

Edit your Home page static page.
add a javascript to redirect to your product page

setLocation('http://yourwebsite.com/your_product_page.html');

I think you should create/edit home page in admin panel
and display random/most viewed/best sellers on that page.

this link gives you a solution to show most viewed/best selling products

Thank you easypdfinvoice, I have try the javascript solution inserting it in index.php. It won’t work as it enters in a “loop of redirections” but it does go to the new url. I am guessing that this is because I have inserted the code in the index.php and It needs to be somewhere else but I don’t really know where…

You talked about inserting it in the home page static page but I don’t really know how to get there.

I have put the following code:

<script type="text/javascript">
    
[removed].replace("mysiteurl");   
</script>

Thanx.

Do not add the script to index.php file grin

From magento backend
Cms->Pages
You will see your homepage listed there. edit your home page. then you can add the script to the content tab (make sure you hide the editor)
