Faulty module or I don't know something?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm new here.

Registered, because I have a question. I'm using prestashop 1.7 with a theme, that has a module for displaying products from a certain category.

There are two instances of it on the front page, one block for one category, second for another. The products have the right categories set, the modules are configured correctly too (I think), each has its own category from which to display the products selected. But the problem is, after I set products for one module, the second one displays the same products. And I'm stuck on this.

Tried changing categories from products through mysql yesterday, but the category in the backoffice is still  the same (I thought maybe I have to remove the "Home" category from all the products). 

Any ideas tips? Thanks in advance.

How did you create two instances?

I guess that that module doesn't have a configuration page where you can configure different settings for different hooks.

You probably just hooked a module to two different positions and it is just normal it displays the same content.

If you want to duplicate a module and use the duplicate as a separate module you will have to replace in the duplicate all references to module_name to module_name2 for example.

Not difficult but it may be a lot of occurrences and if you miss one it won't work; you better ask someone who knows what to do to do it.
