Instead to the product page, I would like to direct our customers to a custom URL that holds our landing page from the category product... without affecting the product url.

Recommendation of an extension can also be an option.

  • Do you want to keep the sub url http://yourshop.com/categoryname/product.html intact, or only the direct product url http://yourshop.com/product.html ? – Milan Simek Oct 21 '15 at 18:57
  • Would you like to redirect to a different URL or show your landing page in the same URL? – Yiorgos Moschovitis Oct 21 '15 at 21:53
  • Milan: I would like to keep both of them intact. Yiorgos: I would like to change the URL to another URL from the category page. I guess you can call it an override. But not looking for any kind of redirect using the original URL. – Vivian Oct 26 '15 at 20:50

You can override the product view page for the particular product.

First of all, create a Static Block with your landing page stuff in it. Let's call it "product_xyz_landing"

In your backend go to Catalog -> Manage Products

Find you product and click Edit

Choose the Tab "Design" in the left"

Now in Custom Layout Update

Insert the following code

<reference name="content">
   <action method="unsetChild"><name>product.info</name></action>
   <block type="cms/block" name="landing">
        <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>product_xyz_landing</block_id><action>

I hope this helps.
