I wonder if someone can give me a prod in the right direction?

We have a few stores now setup on Magento all from a single installation. We now have a need (long story!) to setup a single product website. Basically, we need to show just a single product on the homepage.

Ideally, we would like to have the homepage work in the same way as a product page so contains all the options, images, description, buy button etc.

I have tried creating a new template and adding this…

{{block type="catalog/product_view" product_id="1864" template="catalog/product/one_product.phtml"}}

...but it only seems to load the product name and description.

I basically modified view.phtml to create my new template file. I’m using the default ‘modern’ theme.

Does anyone know where I’m going wrong?

Any pointers would be greatly received! smile
Many thanks!
