Want to display products on the front page?

here is a simple way


the method

creating a new products list , disabling the sort / view styling ( the toolbar that show above each category )

displaying the selected category on the front page by editing cms/home page

steps

1- create a file cal lit featured.phtml


2- edit the featured.phtml


copy the code from


/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/catalog/product/list.phtml



find and remove this code (2 places )


<?php echo $this→getToolbarHtml() ?>



save your file featured.phtml , please do not overwrite list.phtml


save it to this location /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/catalog/product/



3- go create a category , or select an existing category that you want to include the featured products


4- add the products that you want to the category , so now category1 have product1, 2 ,3, 4 ,5, etc ..

( the products will have 2 categories , main and additional , the additional )


5- go to admin area , go to cms » manage pages

edit the home page

put your images ( such as ads ) , special text , or anything you want

then put this code where you want to display the featured products

the code not showing correctly please admin fix it

featured.phtml


explanation of the above code


category_id : put the number of the category you want , not sure what the category id is ? i put “2” which is the first subcategory i created

template : this is the template that we going to use which is originally here

/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/catalog/product/


please admins, use the concept to write a better article or edit this article , i dont know how to explain things easier
