I create a category with some product. Also create a custom layout for my page that I add new cms page with this layout that I created. I need to have this page with my layout because I want to add some php code just for this page. I redirect category to this page but my problem is here that products that I added to this category doesn't show in page.

Now I want to know how can I show products in this page?

Steps that I created my custom layout:

1.) I create a phtml file with 2columns-left.phtml layout and it's name is renewpage.phtml and it's address is: app/design/frontend/default/celebrity/template/page.

2.) I added it's config.xml in app/code/local/Renew/Page/etc/config.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
                <renewpage translate="label">
                <!-- add more layouts here -->

3.) And add Renew_page.xml in app/etc/modules/Renew_page.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
                <Mage_Page />

You copy app/design/frontend/default/Customtheme/template/catalog/product/list.phtml and paste it same folder app/design/frontend/default/Customtheme/template/catalog/product/rename.phtml

Then call this code in your custom page

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="Your Category ID Here" template="catalog/product/rename.phtml"}}

    Its the same as i say before but without the upgrade of the grid.

You could show a list of product using app/design/frontend/default/URDESIGN/template/catalog/product/list.phtml

If want to get a individual category and display with a simple config, you could do this on the list.phtml line 110 on else, to display a grid mode:

<?php else: ?>
    <?php // Grid Mode ?>
    <?php $_collectionSize = $_productCollection->count() ?>
    <table class="products-grid" id="products-grid-table">
        $_columnCount = 1; // $this->getColumnCount()
        $_items = $_productCollection->getItems();
        $max_items = 6; // Show 6 items
        $personal_count = 1;
        $i = 0;
        foreach ($_items as $_product):


If you want to call it, just call like:

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="###CAT_ID###" template="catalog/product/new-list-example.phtml"}}

And switch ###CAT_ID### for the category that you want to display.

If have any problem, comment it.

  • Why I should add this code in list.phtml? I don't want to change in files and I create my custom layout for my page that I want to show products in this page, I don't understand why you said change list.phtml.

  • Its correct, i write quickly but i say you could. Instead of this, you could create a new file called new-list-example.phtml and copy list.phtml and add this changes.

In summary then, you need to do the following things:

  • Create a new category
  • Create a new module
  • Create a new layout XML file in the module
  • Create a new template in the module
  • Create a new Block Class in the module
  • Add the logic to pull out the products from your new category in there
  • Call the method from your template

All these individual steps are documented elsewhere on the web, I won't repeat that information here.
