You can edit the store home here-
Cart > Component > Settings > Display Controls: Store Splash Page Lists

Select the product list and category list you want.  If you need to create additional they can be created here-
Cart > Store Displays > Category Displays
Cart > Store Displays > Product List Displays

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

What?

I can see you turn on the slider at this location
Cart > Component > Settings > Display Controls: Store Splash Page Lists

But I do not see how to change out the images that are in the slider. Am I missing something?

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

The store splash page doesn't use the featured products slots - it shows one set of products which are controlled by the 'Display on Store Splash Page' setting under Store > Catalog > Products.  It's name and settings are managed under Store > Component > Settings > Display Controls: Store Splash Page Lists.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

Here is what I was missing.

These are linked images in the slider.

The slide display on the splash page is a series of images that are controlled at

System Dashboard > Website > Content > Banner Advertisements

You also control the side banners there too.

I noticed the size of your banners in the slider are 650 x 250 px. Can you give me any recommendations for improving the image quality? My images seem to render squashed or misfit. The text is less than optimal. Are the images being rendered at 650 x 250?

Thanks.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

Hey Nick:

Is there a reason some of my slider jpgs are dropping out. I can only get one that I created to run, the rest just drop out.

The size is 665 x 250. I am creating the jpg in Photoshop 5.5 Mac using save for web and devices.

Is there are trick to getting these to work?

Thanks.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

Here is a little more info.

I can get all three of your images to rotate on the slider on the splash page.

I can get one of mine to do it. If I put my images A and B up, only A renders. If I just put up image B, it renders. I cannot get images A and B to render one after another, like your do. They are about 23 kb in size.

Does that tell you anything?

Thanks.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

Interesting I got it to work.

I had to clone your images and then replace it with my data and image.

Then everything works fine except once every few cycles, it drops off for a second. I wonder if there is something wrong with the Create a new slide routine?

If you are having trouble with this routine, trying cloning a known good image.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

I am seeing a difference in behavior with the slider on the splash page when viewed using Safari 6 on a Mac Lion system.

Firefox 14 renders it fine but Safari has a moment where everything seems to disappear and then continue normally. I only have three images in it and I had to clone the existing files to get it to work.

I am not sure but I don';t think this is something I am doing.

Here it is if you want to look.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

It turns out it is only a isolated case within one browser instance.

Everything seems to be working fine. I like this cart.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

Jeez, I got a headache trying to get my mind around that. I  I get it now, and have products back on my home page. Thanks to Aircut for the useful tips.

Change the titles of the blocks in
System Dashboard > Store > Component > Settings > Display Controls: Featured Product Lists - I had a load of stuff about Guitars which has now thankfully gone away.

So, Uncletim, you're good now?  Hard to follow this one at this point.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

Hello.  I am having a similar problem in getting the the five "Featured Product Lists" to display.   I've activated the sliders under "Store > Component > Settings > Display Controls: Featured Product Lists" and I have assigned a slot to my products but I still get nothing.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

Make sure you have this code in your HTML splash page:

Code:

<?php $this->include_namespace('ecom','prodfeature'); ?>

Edit:  I switched to a splash page, added the code and it worked.  Thanks.

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

Another question:  Let's say I want to display only one of the featured slots on a specific page.  What would be the code to limit the display to slot 1, for example?

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

You can't really just display one of the slots.  You can display all of them using:

Code:

<?php $this->include_namespace('ecom','prodfeature'); ?>

Re: Upgrade to 8, Non of the categories are being displayed on the front

Thanks Nick.  As a follow up question, are the codes provided in this wiki ( http://wiki.kryptronic.com/CCP7CreatingLinks ) still valid for version 8?

Yes, those are all still valid and they work.
