In my current project the featured products are not showing on home page until i am not disabling the cache. When i disabled the cache featured products is showing and after enabling again it is not showing.

Any idea would be appreciated.

Hey maybe turning of the caching for this block would solve that issue if thats the only block which is not working when using caching. See link below, I use the same strategy and it works perfect for me http://blog.magikcommerce.com/how-to-turn-off-cache-for-an-individual-block-in-magento/

  • If that is the case then can you let me know folder structure where i need to add for featured products widget. @Thomas

Yes got it by changing the cache_lifetime from 7200 to null in dynamicproducts.php page.

$this->addData(array( 'cache_lifetime' => null, 'cache_tags' => array(Mage_Catalog_Model_Product::CACHE_TAG) ));
