*bump*

Has anyone gotten this to work in 1.4?

Also, I'm a little confused. Do I need Fido-X's module to make this work, or do I just need to edit the home.tpl and home.php files? If its the latter, then it is not working (1.4.7).

it does not work on 1.4.7 I agree...

God, give me courage to do what I can,
humility to admit what I can't,
and wisdom to know the difference.

I too have had a request for this, as the front page (Featured items) are too diverse for a particular store. They felt it made the front page look messy. So....

Mods are fine for this but would it not just be simpler to use the HTML functions in System-->Setting-->Store-->Welcome Message and move any modules in the center to the side. Create 120x120 png images to represent your categories and link to them.

That way you can be virtually assured that future upgrades won't break anything. Seems much simpler way then hacking code.

I do agree that "out of the box" would be a great feature to have your categories in the center that represent like a portal to your products.

Would be great if a frontpage category table were part of the core, customers look for that often, could even display first level subcats in text under the main cat pics too
