Indeed a really nice design!

Some points:
- In advanced search, there still is an ‘Featured product’ option. Don’t know if thats done by purpose
- The main category ‘Conferences’ has no products, while the other main categories contain the same products as the subcategories

Can you tell which tutorial you have used to implement the ‘Featured products’ on your homepage?

thx combicart

for the featured products I tried all the tuorials I could find—only one really worked ( I think it was this one: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/4780/)

but I had a problm with it - when somebody would click on an item I wanted the relvent category to be highlighted on the side menu—but instead the items wouldnt have a category (they would be [Home/Product] instead of [Home/Category/SubCategory/Product] ) Which wouldn’t help much if the user wanted to see other items in the same category

sooo in the end I decided id just save myself the frustration and time and hand coded it lol

Hi CustomToronto,

That’s exactly the same problem I have with the current ‘Featured Product’ solutions! Thats why I was interested in your solution wink
I think the JM Product List extension from Joomlart shows the correct category/subcategory link, but I’m not 100% sure and that a rather expensive solution.
