Creating a featured product and showing it in the home page

In some cases, we need to promote some products as featured so that they would stay sticky in the home page. Unfortunately, Magento had no such feature until 1.4 version.

In this recipe, we will do it in a very simple way!

Getting ready

Fire up your favorite IDE and open your Magento project. Visit your Magento store's admin area.

How to do it...

  1. Log in to your Magento admin panel.
  2. Go to Catalog | Manage Categories.
  3. We will add a new subcategory under the Root category named Featured Products. Click on the Add Subcategory button.
  4. In the General Information tab, enter the following data:
    • Name *:Featured Products
    • Description:<lt;empty>
    • Image:<lt;empty>
    • Page title:Featured Products
    • Meta Keywords:<lt;empty> ...
