How can I redirect from the Homepage to the Product View?

Which product view?
Some use the CMS page and add block code to specific items.

Someone else made a reference to replacing it in a different manner, this provided a good solution for myself.

create a homepage category in the Root Catalog, assign the products you want to display on the “homepage” to that homepage category view as well, assign the url: home

assuming all the product requirements are met, in stock, viewable, active
and that the category is active you should be set.

and if you dont want the same look as the rest of the pages… you make a static block and apply it under the homepage category settings.

Hi Josh,

I want to display the product like it would be with the product_view blocktype. but this view is still buggy if I put it on the Hompage via code. what you meant was the product_list blocktype but this is not what i need
