Hi,
Should be a simple q:
I would like to start a store with a “woot style” home page.

What I mean by this is that I will have about 2 or 3 products only. When customers comes to my store, they see all the 3 products immediately on the home page, and they can add them instantly to the cart.

What would I need to be able to do this? I assume all I would need is the correct HTML code for the “product item” and “add to cart” buttons etc? Could someone help me out?

Thank you in advance for any help!

If you want a REALLY simple way to do this, you could use .htaccess to shoot homepage visitors directly to your main catalogue page.

You can add this code in your CMS editor for the home page:

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="123"}}

Change the category id to the ID of your category containing the products you want on the front page. Then you can update the product list template to modify the layout if required.

w00t!
