This must be the most asked question in the forum, and since I had to figure out how to do this for myself, it was a logical choice for a tutorial.

This method allows you to show the products from any category, or several categories on your home page.

Thank you so much.

I was interested in displaying all the products from a category.  I added
{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="22"}} to the Home Page based on http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/3111/

But that did not do anything. 

After watching your video, I realized the complete solution is {{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="22" template=catalog/product/list.phtml}}

In the video you talk about this at around 6:00 mins into the video.

Thanks again.

Hi,

I’ve follow step by step video’s instructions to show products in the HomePage. The products are displayed it’s ok, but whatever the product’s link I click on, the page can’t be accessed, the browsed url seems to be invalid:
http://localhost/\/report/?id=1534233894&s;=default

Is there a solution ?

Regards,
Cleoo

Thank you for the video!!! I am new to magento, as well. One thing that wasnt covered in the video or maybe i missed it was the issue of setting up your categories correctly. Initially I just created a category then followed your tutorial not realizing i need to create sub-categories and then point the home page block to them. I was receiving and error about my product list. After setting up a sub-category under the default one, then putting the products on that newly created sub-category, did my products finally show up on my home page.

Hi,

Using the following method here http://www.vimeo.com/1070986 it limits the home page products to show only 1 category, is there any way of showing products from all categories?

Hi,

Using the following method here http://www.vimeo.com/1070986 it limits the home page products to show only 1 category, is there any way of showing products from all categories?

There is a way to show random products on the homepage with one line of code added to the homepage cms but I cannot find it.
I originally had it working on my site before I moved server.

I’ve got the same problem.
Anyone could help me?

my version: 1.4.0.1

I put category id number into:
(in my case, 4)

{{<block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="4" template="catalog/product/default.phtml"}}

I put the code in:
CMS>Homepage>Design under page information menu.
Please refer to the image I attached.

*there is no “content” field under page information in my tab as directed in the tutorial by Steve.

Still I cannot get products on my homepage (first page).

Thank you very much in advance.
