How to change 'new products' into 'categories' on front page


Criz

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I would like to remove 'new products' on the front page and replace it with a visual of all the availabe categories (with thumbnails).

 

Can anyone help me out? I figured out how to disable the 'new products' box but am still looking for a way to add these categories.

 

Thanks!

Not reallly,

 

If you click on a category it shows the subcategories in the default page.

 

I would like to show the categories itself (not the subs, but exactly like it) on the initial default page (when you enter the website).

 

And since we do not have a lot of new products, I would like to get rid off the 'new products'-section and put there the categories instead.

 

I hope I have explained myself a little better :wink: :lol:

 

Regards,

 

Chris

Yes I am another one, I don't have any new products now that my catalog is complete. If I add a new line I will activate the new products window then. But I think it looks classy to have your catalog with its image underneath your introduction in the same box format as and where new products is. I have also seen other "live shops that have done this."

 

I think we are all clear that we want the same thing here - I/we look forward to anyone who has the code for this if they felt inclined to share it with us.

 

Kind regards

Do you have examples (url;s) of sites that have implemented this feature? So we can take a look at their source code, maybe we can learn something from it.

Thanks to you all!

 

I got it working on my site. I inserted the advised contribution and it works great, exactly what I was looking for! :D

 

I adjusted the file 'main_categories.php' a little bit to center all the products, to get the names etc below and not next to each other. I also put 3 categories in 1 row instead of 2 in the current version.

 

If you would like to get this modified file, just reply or send me an e-mail.

 

Thanks again and success to you all!

PS I will also try to look in disabling the subcategories (the text links), it could look more attractive without :wink: although of course it makes surfing easier

That site looks great, but it isnt exactly a list of the topcategories. They added some tables with news, featured products etc. Looks great, but not same as the categories.
