Im trying to achieve what I though it would be a simple task, of adding a list of manually selected products, to be presented as a featured collection of products.

Tried several options, using custom attributes or data from hidden categories but none of those have worked so far.

Can anyone please recommend a link/solution for this?

  • Go with inchoo extension, it is best and works like charm... – Siddharth Vaghasia Jan 20 '15 at 7:57

You can install this extension provided by inchoo, Just upload this extension in your magento and then you will be able to select the products as featured. all featured product list will be shown on http://yoursite.com/featured-products .

For showing featured products on homepage Inside your Home page content HTML add this: {{block type=”featuredproducts/listing”}} and click on the save page button, all description is given on the [provided link][2]

Luis, recently I was looking for solutions to achieve featured products goal. My requirements looked similar to one you are describing. I decided to use an Ahead Works Featured Products 3 extension for that and installed that yesterday.

If I understand it correctly, you could do something like this:

  • Create a category that will not be listed in navigation menu (hidden)
  • Assign products to it
  • Create your own block that pulls data from that category (extend from Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List and override the _getProductCollection() method
  • create a template that will show these products (you can reuse code from template/catalog/product/list.phtml)
  • call the block with that template in your CMS page (homepage or wherever)
