Menu Link to Featured Products Page
« on: July 18, 2008, 05:59:45 am »
Hi Everyone ! ;D

Im just wondering if there is a way to link directly to a page that displays the Featured Products.

Not through the Featured Products Module but a Direct menu link to that page ?
 
Hopefully someone would have some idea as I could not get around this  ???

Thanks!

Featured Products are shown in a modules, so create a Joomla article page to hold the module using loadposition and link to that article.

I don't understand this - can you offer a bit more? I've created a news article page and in the content I've put {mosloadposition  featureprod} but the featured items don't show up. Obviously I'm doing something wrong but I really do want to be able to link to my featured products.

This is a Joomla! question. In J! 1.5.x a,d 1.0.x add a new user position into you Joomla! template .xml file, something that is easy to spot, such as user_xxx  Then publish the module you wish to display in maincontent to that user position. Then create a new article or static page containing {loadposition user_xxx} - or {mosloadposition user_xxx} in Joomla 1.0.x

Hi!

You can try:

1. Make product category: Featured products
2a. Join featured products to this category by hand, OR...

2b. SQL:
DELETE FROM `sklep_vm_product_category_xref` WHERE `category_id` = 58
(58-is my featured products category ID)
INSERT INTO sklep_vm_product_category_xref
(
SELECT 58, `product_id` , 1
FROM `sklep_vm_product` WHERE `product_special` = "Y"
)
3. Make menu link (or not if you use standard category/shop module)

You must change names of tables. My start sklep_.

You can make php file whith this code ie.: corectfeatured.php
and after changing featured product list run this file
or
append this code in some place in shop files.
But where?
Know anybody best place?

regards

As up above, use {loadposition user_xxx} in a Joomla article linked to your default homepage menu item.
