  • You could add products from a certain category using the following in your cms page editor: {{block type="catalog/product_list" name="home.catalog.product.list" alias="products_cms" category_id="about us products ID" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}} You could then add a category for the cms page products, for example - create category "about us products" and then add that category id to the widget code. This way you can easily manage cms displayed products from the category section, rather than hardcoding individual product IDs.

  • @Bilal has you can see the design there is only individual product to be displayed. So what way can I call individual product ID?
