Products in grid view on homepage HELPHELPHELP

Please help me.

 

All I want is to be able to display about 12-20 products on my homepage rather than the four catagories that are currently there.

 

I have searched and searched and searched but have found nothing that will help me.

 

I also think that my homepage will only allow four catagories as if i add another through admin the name appears in the box on the left but no image in the main area of the page.

 

My website is www.mountain-marine.com and would like it to have the look of http://shop.pinbax.com/ ( i am not sure that this is oscommerce but you should get the idea)

 

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Hi

I'm not sure if there is a contribution that does this, but you could achieve a similar effect by installing a contribution called 'define main page'. This will allow you to manually ad your products and you could the link them through to relevant pages. I've used this method to good effect i the past.

 

Regards

Martin

Thank you will this enable me to have these views on my homepage as well as the manufacturer/catagory listing?

osC does not have a 'homepage' as such so it makes little sense to refer to it, unless you've created one yourself.

 

the 'default' view is with index.php showing the 'TEXT_MAIN' plus the new_products.php module, in other modes index.php shows different content.

 

the thread I mentioned shows you how to modify a product module to give it thumbnail product listings.

Hi I have done this and the mod is now available on my admin page however my default page is still the same. Can you tell me what I need to do in order to stop my fron page looking like it does.

 

Any changes I make on the update product listing admin seem to have no effect on my site.

 

Thank you in advance

Your admin side its for admin only, only configuration changes effect catalog side.

 

Change pages on the catalog side for users.

Sorry to keep being a pain but my knowledge is really rather low. can I post my index.php file as it currently is so that you can try to see why I have no new products on my default page.

 

The previous guy doing our site has placed boxes on the default page and I would like to know how I can change this so that the product listing contrib that I have installed and says was done correctly can display new products on the default page in grid form rather than how it is at the moment

Thank you for any help you can be

You currently list categories on default page, takes you to product listing eventually, which is still showing old style??

 

If you want to place product directly on default page but have no idea, perhaps you need to employ a coder.

I am not sure a coder is what i am wanting otherwise I would not have tried to use OSc I would have just spent a ton on a pre made site.

 

I can see in index.php the code that is making the catagories appear as you state and if i remove this code i just get a define text message on my index page. All i am wanting to do is add the code that will replace the catagorie boxes with the product information that I want.

 

Do you do coding and if so how much do you think this type of job would be?

 

Thank you again for your time

 

Jaime
