I created one custom back-end module and admin can add products id in the back-end with comma separated , so how can I display that products on home page which is admin add in the back-end.

Here is my productlisting.phtml file

$collection1 = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->getCollection()->getAllIds();
        echo "<pre>";
        echo "</pre>";
        $collection = Mage::getModel('productlisting/productlisting')->getCollection();
        foreach($collection as $date_to){
            if($date_to == $collection1)
        //  print_r($date_to->getProductId());
            //  print_r ($date_to->getLimit());
    //  var_dump($date_to->getProductId());
            echo "<br>";

A. First create your own Module on "local" code pool.

This module will contains product collection with your own conditions.

For example,

class Mymodule_Myblock_Block_Product_Category_List extends Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_Abstract
    protected function _getCollection()
        /** @var $collection Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Product_Collection */
        $collection = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product_collection');

        $collection = $this->_addProductAttributesAndPrices($collection)

        // filter by visible and status


        return $collection;

You can add some own conditions or filter for product collection.

B. Go to Admin panel, CMS > Page > Edit Home Page > Content.

Add below code to call out the block.

{{block type="mymodule_myblock/product_category_list" template="mymodule/myblock/product/list.phtml" categoryId="1" title="New Products"}}

Also, you need to go to Permission > Blocks to add block name for white list.

*** This is just a simple example, you can add more different parameters to block/product collection to achieve your own Module more user-friendly.


If you are using cms/page to modify homepage content

  • You can search for how to create widget in magento. (to do show product you wish)
  • In cms/page,you edit homepage. At content tab you insert the widget to homepage via wysiwyg panel
