The e-commerce.

When store opens


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to adjust what the first page is that opens when a viewer goes to your store. For example, when you go to my store www.mitoazul.com/store/catalog the first page that opens says "What's New". I would rather the products page open. Is this possible.

Do you mean you'd like it to go straight to a particular category?


If so you can edit index.php. At the top is a section like this

// the following cPath references come from application_top.php
 $category_depth = 'top';
 if (isset($cPath) && tep_not_null($cPath)) {
$categories_products_query = tep_db_query("select count(*) as total from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_TO_CATEGORIES . " where categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "'");
$cateqories_products = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_products_query);
if ($cateqories_products['total'] > 0) {
  $category_depth = 'products'; // display products
} else {
  $category_parent_query = tep_db_query("select count(*) as total from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " where parent_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "'");
  $category_parent = tep_db_fetch_array($category_parent_query);
  if ($category_parent['total'] > 0) {
	$category_depth = 'nested'; // navigate through the categories
  } else {
	$category_depth = 'products'; // category has no products, but display the 'no products' message


add an else statement to that last } so it looks like this:

  } else {


This will make it redirect to the category 3 if no category has been selected. You can just replace the 3 here with whatever the id of your own category you want it to go to
