Display Default Category on Store Home Page


I would like to add a "Featured Items" or "Clearance" Category that displays product images when I first go to the store. I want this to replace the default category icons that show now. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!

Default Select Categories to Display

I'm thinking about using Ecwid and this is one of the features I'd like to have. Is there a way to create a "Featured" or "Best Sellers" category and only display those on a home page? I guess I'm looking for a way to display only specific categories on a page instead of all of them.

This is fairly easy to do:

1 - Create a new category for your "Featured" or "Clearance" items.
2 - Add the items to the category by checking off the new category box
3 - Change this section of code in the product browser widget:

<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
xProductBrowser("categoriesPerRow=3","views=grid(3 ,3) list(10) table(20)","categoryView=grid","searchView=list"," style=","defaultCategoryId=12345"[/B][/B]);
// ]]></script>

You've added the defaultCategoryId which will be the category that appears when you first come to the store. Change the 12345 to the ID for that category. You can find the category ID in the URL that appears when on that page.

Hope this helps

It does help. For anyone that is interested I believe it is the same thing that is discussed here:
