Magento – Adding Feaured Products to Front Page

Sharing is Caring

The owner of Nature Bumz wanted to be able to add featured products to the home page of their magento store each day without having to modify to edit the content.

Inchoo has created a great extension, called Featured Products, that features a great backend allowing the admins to choose featured products from a simple grid. (Catalog -> Featured Products.)For the front end, it’s very easy to add the required code to the content:
{{block type="featuredproducts/listing" template="inchoo/block_featured_products.phtml"}}

Don’t forget to refresh the cache after you install through downloader or you might get some errors. 😉
