choosing what products go on the front page

Recommended Posts

I'm after a contribution that allows you to choose what is listed on the front page. I only want the important main products on the front page, and as it stands if I enter an insignificant item it'll go straight to the top of the chart - even worse if there are 9 of them, they push everything else off the front page. I've had a good look and have been able to find nothing, though that's not to say I haven't missed something. I thought the various sort order mods would do the trick but they don't seem to apply to the front page for some reason. Can anyone sugest something I can add to make it do this? It'll finaly complete my shop, and you'll have my eternal gratitude. :thumbsup:

I like this Idea. I would love for there to be a customizable product list for the front end.

 

The major thing that I would like to see is a customizable front end for the text. The current idea of having to customize it yourself is a royal pain in the butt!

You can do it by changing the post date. I think there is a contribution for it. I guess the name is: Edit Product Post Date. There are several threads also about how to do it.

Hmmmm, I'll look into that one (here), but that does look like a bit of a bodge/awkward way around it. <_< Surely it would be better to actualy add something somewhere that could be altered.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saying all that, it only requires one file to be altered so my lazyness might well win out. :rolleyes:

Cheers Stu. I did have a look at that one, and as far as I can make out from reading the blurb it creates a box in the left (or right) column that has featured items that you can choose. (Of course I could be wrong having not actualy tried installing it. :-" ) I'm after something that allows you to choose what goes in the main body of the front page (i.e the 9 most recent items that appear on it in the standard configuration.) Are you managing to choose what goes here on your site with that contrib?

 

 

 

Nice looking site btw.
