I would like to have product carousels on my homepage using 3-4 different product categories.

That means i would have my left and right sidebar and then in the middle I would like to have the following

Carousel 1 (3 products Category 1)

Carousel 2 (3 products Category 2)

Carousel 3 (....

and so on similar to this one

Is that somehow possible?


Yes, this can be done mostly in the CMS.

For the carousel you need some kind of JavaScript library, like OWL Carousel, if your theme doesn't already come with a slider widget.

See this question about how to integrate it.

Then, you can use widgets to insert product images/links inside the single elements of the carousel.

  • how do i fill these carousels then from different categories? – Klettseb Mar 5 '15 at 14:27
  • This approach needs manual selection of each product. – Fabian Schmengler Mar 5 '15 at 14:32
  • It seems like you have a deep understanding of it. Do you know if there is a code snippet online or tutorial how its done? – Klettseb Mar 5 '15 at 15:42
  • Sorry, I don't know any. – Fabian Schmengler Mar 5 '15 at 16:12
  • I will try my best and see if i can get it to work smoothly and then update the question thanks ! – Klettseb Mar 6 '15 at 7:37
