Hi,
as the subject says, is there a way to show special offers in home page without a box?
What I mean is, in the home page, below the initial products box (the middle class), I'd also like to show the special offers.

E.G.:

Code: Select all

                                             HEADER
LEFT COLUMN                                                                        |RIGHT COLUMN
                    |       Welcome to my store                                 | 
                    |        Product 1 | Product 2 | Product 3              |
                    |        -----------------------------------------            |
                    |        SPECIAL OFFERS                                       |
                    |         Product 1 | Product 2 | Product 3             |
-----------------
------------------------------------------FOOTER-------------------------------

Try looking at the homepage module from fido-x. This may be what your looking for.

I like Homepage module from Fido-X, because the module makes SPECIAL products more flexible.
1.4.8 is good, but the SPECIAL products on homepage is fixed, not like the module from FIDO-X.

If OC term can make SPECIAL products flexible in homepage would be great.

I just dl'd the homepage 148 module. There are no longer any of the module things in this version. Seems to be just homepage news entries now.

FYI to fido-x, there are a few issues I've noticed
- the image manager link for homepage entries needs the token tag added in the tpl
- The home page entries are missing the top and sides. Only the bottom rounded line is showing
- Since home is the only option you are using in position, you could probably just hardcode that.

I don't know what flexible means tho, A specials module simply shows specials. Looking at the code in the 1.4.6 version of the homepage mod for specials shows the exact same code that the one in 1.4.8 shows so I have no idea what you are talking about allen

If you have the module from Fido-X. You will find out that once you refresh homepage, the SPECIAL products on homepage are always changing. Not like what we have in 1.4.8.

The Special function from Fido-X is very cool, the one from 1.4.8 is too simple.

Lol wtf.. thats a 2 word change. Why not ask how to do it rather than use ambiguous words like "Flexible"

1. EDIT: catalog/model/catalog/product.php

2. FIND (under getProductSpecials function):

Code: Select all

$sql .= " ORDER BY LCASE(" . $sort . ")";
3. REPLACE WITH:

Code: Select all

$sql .= " ORDER BY rand()";
Was that so hard?
