I need help. On my home page I would like to have the categories of products displayed, example, skirts, pants, belts or whatever. I would like to have the shopper click on the category that they are interested in viewing, which will then take them to the page where all the skirts for instance will be displayed, including the product that the shopper clicked on to reach that page. Please bear in mind, that I am ignorant when it comes on to this like this, and have no programming knowledge.  I will appreciate any help. blank stare

You really dont need a lot of programming knowledge to modify the home page, just an understanding on how links work. You can simply go to CMS > Manage Page > Home page and make all the configurations there. You can find the links for the category’s under Catalog > Url Rewrite Manager.

Hope that helps

I tried doing the CMS>Manage Page>Home page, but the thing with this is, that after I reach manage page and go to my home page then what? How do I even tie that up with URL Rewrite Manage? I am so lost it isn’t even funny. If I didn’t spend so much $$, I think that I would have bailed a week ago.

Ok say for instance that you would like to link a picture of a skirt to the skirt category. The skirt is located at

www.yourdomain.com/media/skirt.jpg
. The category ID for skirts is #1. Therefore, the catergory for skirts is located at
www.yourdomain.com/catalog/category/view/id/1
. Now to link the picture of the skirt to your skirt category, you use this code
<a href="www.yourdomain.com/catalog/category/view/id/1"><img src="www.yourdomain.com/media/skirt.jpg"></a>
. If you follow that reasoning, you can have a homepage full of links.

Hope that helps
