We need to show to customers a list or products that are in the same category, but we don't want to list other products of that category.

Specific example: We have a categories "t-shirts" and we want to link from a banner to all t-shirts that contain "Mickey Mouse". We have the ID's of the products from the backend of course.

Is there a way or an extension to achieve this?

Sth. like ../index.php?products=1,7,11,13?

If there is no solution out of the box, how would you achieve this programmatically? Using the standard listing/grid of the shop (same templates).

  • you could use widgets of type "Catalog Product Link", but there its only possible to enter one product... – roman204 Jul 30 '14 at 11:40
  • thx roman for the idea. our use case is to have links, that could even be sent around and limit the product list to the product id's passed via GET – Awinad Jul 30 '14 at 12:29

If you are asking for extension, you can search for landing pages module at the magento connect. Basically there are some, and at least one allows to define products SKUs , category or/and attribute conditions.

If you want to create your own plugin, you need to define a new custom block, extended from the Mage_Catalog_Product_List with the modified function getProductCollection(), where you can add you conditions.

Sander and the gang build a great landing page with layered navigation extension, you can find it here:

You can't filter by id but a lot of other attributes.
