I have 5 stores, each store with 3 categories.

Every store has it's own CMS page. I want to show the products of a given category of those 3 categories in store's CMS page (e.g. categories 12, 13, 27, or just category 12).

I tried all of these :

Unfortunately, unsuccessfully...

Result is absolutely nothing... Inspecting the page, I get blank divs where the code were supposed to appear.

Products are in stock and available, yet they appear in "new_products" widget.

I've followed every single question and tuto about this, and it simply doesn't work...

Points of interest:

  • My Magento version is 1.9.2.
  • The block code that I'm using right now is this: {{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="12" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}
  • I've cleaned magento's cache hundreds of times

If you need further information, please let me know. I'll be waiting hopefully for your help.

For Magento 1.9.2.x, You need to create permission for 'catalog/product_list' block from 'System->Permissions->Blocks'

  • Hey @Sohel, thank you! I've just added "module/product_list" to my permissions, also unsuccesful. In my CMS content editor, I'm using this: {{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="12" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}} Am I missing something? Dec 16, 2015 at 22:55
  • Blocks permissions was added in Magento

  • @SohelRana 's answer works! Finally! It's showing all categories instead of selected one, but at least it's showing something. Thank you, sir! Dec 17, 2015 at 11:59
