How can I display all products on the front page? It's a very small store (23 items) and I'd like them all to show up on the front page. Is this possible?

You can set either the Latest or Featured module to show all products. Set limit to 24, position to home and select all products.

limit would be higher than 24.. try 1000... but be warned the more you try to pull at once, the bigger the strain on your server. However, it does use product caching so once it pulls it once it will only repull when the cache is cleared (when new products get added)

But he only has 23 products ?!

Otherwise, I would have recommended the excellent 'All Products' module in Free Extensions which allows product sorting and pagination. ;D

I can't be made to read things :)
Plus 24 would be too high as well :)

...but it is a multiple of four and there are four products per row so I was anticipating him adding something to fill the gap.

I'm anticipating that too... a 977 product gap :)

Ok so I created a category called "All Products"

How can I get it to redirect automatically to this category?

Code: Select all

header( 'Location:yoursite.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=35' ) ; 
I tried that in the index, and several of the requires/includes but it ends in a redirect loop. Any input?

No need. Simply add the Featured or Latest module to the home position in Admin->Extensions->Modules

The Products don't need to be in the same category.

Yeah I figured that out, but it's a PITA for people to add/remove products, as after you do that, you have to go to modules/extensions and manually add the products. It also screws with the sort order.
