[TIP] Randomize Home Featured Products


Recommended Posts

Right, I had a look round for this recently and found nothing other than people offering paid modules for this. I was given this code a long time ago and have used it ever since and not ever had a problem with it. It's very simple and I'm suprised I've not seen it mentioned or someones not been kind enough to offer the info back up. The original post I got the info in also seems to have disappeared.. So, in the charity of good will, enjoy this snippet on me! :D

 

The line to change is in your Homefeatured module (located: domain.com/modules/homefeatured/) and you will need to edit the homefeatured.php.

 

Find line 99 and change it to this:

 

$products = $category->getProducts(intval($params['cookie']->id_lang), 1, ($nb ? $nb : 10), 'date_add', 'DESC', false, true, true, $nb);

 

Save, bosh, job done, you now have random products for your front page! Enjoy. Hope this helps some fellow 'shoppers!

Hi,

 

nice tips, thanks !

 

A little feedback :

+ As Patric said, add a tag on the topic title ;)

 

+ you should precise the version of PrestaShop (in 1.4.4 it's ok, in 1.3.0.1 the line is 69 )

 

+ If you do a little more, you can add an option in the module configuration to enable the random or not !

This should be done in the methods displayForm() (to add the option in the form) and getcontent() to update its value.

 

With that, I suppose we could include this in a future official release ;)

Ahh apologies for not doing the tag correctly.. Edited now! :)

 

Yeah I guess the line # would change, I didn't think of that... To be more clear, the line that should be changed is this code:

 

$products = $category->getProducts(intval($params['cookie']->id_lang), 1, ($nb ? $nb : 10));

 

changed to:

 

$products = $category->getProducts(intval($params['cookie']->id_lang), 1, ($nb ? $nb : 10), 'date_add', 'DESC', false, true, true, $nb);

 

Thanks for the kind comments. Yes I do agree Michaël that this could easily have been included a long time ago. It seems a basic feature not to have control over, an the fact people are selling modules for SUCH a tiny little snippet I find a little non-community minded personally.

I don't really get it all it did was move the 8 products I have in my featured products to different positions within the grid.

This would be useful if it changed the products randomly on a 10 day or 30 day cycle otherwise its the same products just in a different position.

 

At least that is what it did for me, or am I missing something.

Thanks for sharing. It works fine with 1.5.3.1

 

$products = $category->getProducts((int)Context::getContext()->language->id, 1, ($nb ? $nb : 10), 'date_add', 'DESC', false, true, true, $nb);

in my opinion you don't have to worry about your seo. Moreover - for crawlers more products will be visible on the homepage, which mean better results for them in the google serps

ps 1.6 uses caching

the line is:

HomeFeatured::$cache_products = $category->getProducts((int)Context::getContext()->language->id, 1, ($nb ? $nb : 8), 'position');

but note that products will be cached.
