Displaying Category Products on CMS pages

Planning to promote featured product, special offered or wee specials on your cms pages? It’s so easy - just follow the following procedures:

1. First thing you need to do is to set up a category, supposed we’re going to have a category of featured products. So, create a category and name it “Featured” or whatever name you like.

 a. Go to: Catalog -> Categories -> Manage Categories 
 b. Click “Add Subcategory” button and enter the category information such as Name, Is Active etc…

2. Important: Please take note the category id of your newly created category. See the picture below.

3. Now in Category Products Tab – add the product you want to appear.

4. Save the category.

5. Now let say, we are going to show the products from the above category to your home page. Navigate to CMS-> Pages-> Manage Content. 

6. Click the home page and add this following code:

{{block type="catalog/product_list" column_count="5" category_id="41" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

7. Important: please take note that the category_id="41" in the above code is the id of the category you want to show.
