I'm trying to limit the output of products on specific categories, i.e. I'd only like to show the first 3 products (no matter how many there actually are).

All solutions I find are to set the pager-size, but I actually need to limit the products in such a way that the layered navigation only renders for those three products.

If I try the below code (in local.xml) to set the pager-size, it does work, but whenever I try to set a limit, it doesn't. Why?

  <block type="catalog/product_list">
    <action method="setLimit"><value>3</value></action>

Note: This is on a 1.6 installation


Try this:

        <reference name="product_list_toolbar">
            <action method="addPagerLimit"><mode>grid</mode><limit>3</limit></action>
            <action method="addPagerLimit"><mode>list</mode><limit>3</limit></action>

Note: After clear all cache in admin side

  • Yea, what this does is set the pager limit to three, it generates multiple pages. What I need is to have only 3 products as output, not 3 products per page and multiple pages. – Alex Timmer Mar 7 '17 at 10:36
