Title: Show a single product flypage in homepage
Post by: zevs on January 11, 2011, 12:20:03 pm
Is there any way for me to show a single product flypage as my site's homepage? I guess this would either be done through a module designed to duplicate a product flypage, or some sort of menu configuration which I can't figure out. Any ideas?

If nothing exists, would it be easy to create a module like this?

Hello,

you will have to create a joomla menu item that you can set as homepage.

As Menu-Type select "Virtuemart". In the menu-editor, you can find a slider "Parameters (component)". When you open this slider, fill the following fields:

- Product-Id: insert the product-id of the product you want to show on the homepage
- Page: insert shop.product_details
Option:
Flypage: you can define another flypage-template that shall be used for this menu item.

When you save the menu-item, you can set it as default. After that, it should be shown as homepage.
