Hi all,

Basically i'm looking for a module that creates a new parent category for Bestsellers, Latest Products & Specials and automatically updates them, and that makes them accessible via the top navigation bar etc....

I've been searching the extensions and I have found some but they don't look exactly like what i'm looking for... I have a Latest Products page & a top sellers page, but they are manually kept up to date by myself and this is rather tedious!

thanks for your time,

Luke

Luke,

There are pre-installed modules for Bestsellers, Latest Products and Specials that will automatically update for you. In your admin turn on EXTENSIONS - Modules - Bestsellers, Latest Products and Specials. You can specify the position in that menu.

Hope this is what you are looking for!

Merry

I'm actually looking for them to not be small modules like that but actually create category pages so that someone can click on Specials on the top navigation bar and be taken to all the current specials on the website etc...

Do you know what I mean?

Regards,
Luke

Category:
- Latest Products
- Bestsellers
- Specials

Latest Products - Gets added to when you add a new product.
Bestsellers - Is ordered by the top product sold.
Specials - Lists your special offers by last added.

I am confused by what you want to do more? Pictures may be best at this point to show us what you mean.

Basically,

If you go on our site: http://www.designer-man.co.uk/
You will see we have parent category options on the top nav bar: Shop by Brand, Shop by Type, Gift Ideas.
I would like a module that automatically keeps 3 more Parent category pages up to date, being: Best Sellers, Latest Products, and Specials.... Not as a carousel bar, not as products down the left hand side, or wherever I would like to put them as a module, but just like actual category pages... All that update themselves.

I'm sorry if I can't be any clearer with this, I hope you understand,

Regards,
Luke

That's the one!
Any module to do this or would it have to be done manually?

They are both just using the: special and latest module.

You also have this page yourself, you just need to add a link to it in your menu.
