Hi guys,

When browsing categories, the design looks great

http://www.airyhair.com/test/products.html

However, when it comes to the home page, it looks like this:

http://www.airyhair.com/test/

Can anyone tell me what kind of layout code do I need to use so my index page looks like this? Identical sidebar would be great too.

I am currently using this code from magento 1.4 (currently on 1.7)

<reference name="content">
<
block type="catalog/product_list" name="featured" template="catalog/product/list.phtml">
<
action method="setCategoryId"><category_id>2</category_id></action>
</
block>
</
reference>

Thank you!

That did solve the width issue.

Do you happen to know what layout code to use so homepage style looks identical to that of product categories? For example: bigger thumbnails, newsteller in the bottom rather than top, etc?

Thanks again, this looks so much better

They are slightly different, when browsing categories, product pictures are bigger and right column structure is different (example: newsteller is in top vs bottom, etc)
