// get all products that are marked as featured $collection = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->getCollection(); $collection->addAttributeToSelect('featured'); $collection->addFieldToFilter(array( array('attribute' => 'featured', 'eq' => true), ));
// if no products are currently featured, display some text if (!$collection->count()) : ?>
<p class="note-msg"><?php echo $this->__('There are no featured products at the moment .') ?></p>
I’ve managed to get the products to show correctly in my middle column ‘content’ by using the method on the wiki and assigning the products to an inactive category but now I need to move it to the right hand column.
and placed this in the design section rather than the content section and this did show the products but it wasnt limited to the inactive category and seemed to show all the products. It was as if it wasnt getting the information about the category number.
Is there a simple way to move the block to the right? or failing that could I hard code the category number into the file catalog/product/list.phtml somehow?
