Thanks Vekia great module;

I'm trying to use it, but I have a doubt.
It is possible to position it before featured products of the home page, because I try to see it before that module, and not me.

Hello Vekia  

 

Thanks for another great prestashop module. I have installed it on my website but there is something I would like to do. I want the title of the module to display FEATURED PRODUCTS FROM XYZ CATEGORY instead of just having Featured Products. So that any category I selected will have its name to replace XYZ.

This is because I already have the default Featured Products on my homepage.

 

Thank you once again for this free contribution.  :)

you can just translate it under localization > translations > installed modules translations

Hi Vekia,

 

I actually thought of that. But I plan to change the category every week or few days and it means I will have to do translation every time I change the category.

 

I am thinking perhaps there can be a better way where it will be done automatically.

 

Thank you.

only with modification, both module core (especially hook where the contents appears) and with module theme file. Module just hasn't got feature you mentioned.

 

other was is homepage products pro - but it's paid one

Hi, I'm just thinking out loud - what is the difference between this module and Prestashop's Featured Products Module? is it just a way to add a new tab to the homepage?

What are the advantages for a store owner in this?

Hello

 

With this module you can add any category you wish on the home page, all you need to do is add a category ID in the configuration page

yes, i know that, but this is also the case in prestashop's module Featured Products which adds the "Popular" tab on the homepage.

In the meantime i created a none visible category and associated some products there, just wondering what's the difference..

Thank you for this module!!! you saved my life :D

 

two things, if you can help me...

 

¿how can i erase the divider? (image attach01)

¿how can i increase the size of the prize?

 

i have tried in featuredcategory.css, here, and i couldn´t:

 

#featured-products_block_center .price {
    font-weight:bold;
    font-size:20px;
    color:#990000

 

Thank you!!

Hi, great module thank you.

I see that this module uses the "order" of the products as is set by default in the BO, but i have a problem, i hope hat you can help me.

I have set the order of products: "order as in the position in category" and descendent. So in the categories it shows form ID10 as first item and ID1 as last item...... That ok, that´s what i need, the last or "new" items show before.

 

But in tab of the featured category no matter what configutation is set, it alwats show the item ID1 firts and the item ID10 at last, so the "new" products show at last of the grid, in this case, i'm using this module for category "pro-order" so it's not a good idea to left the new pre-order items at last.

 

I really hope tht you can help me to figure how to change the order of the products in the module.

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi Vekia.

 

Well, i can manage the problem with the order by adding a 'DESC' to the php file.

 

But now i see that if a product is added to the featured category, it's not updated, i have to erase cache manually to the new product to appear in the grid that this module displays.

 

I hope that you can help me.

 

Thank you.

whole process of cache clear is automatic, sadly - by defualt in prestashop we have to wait some time to cache refresh

Salut Vekia,

 

Merci pour ton module, génial et super facile a utiliser.

Cependant, j'ai un souci.

 

Quand je le greffe sur displayhometab comme prévu, rien ne s'affiche. J'ai essayé de greffer sur diyplayhometab et displayhometabcontent, pareil.

 

Pourrais tu regarder un coup pour me dépanner? Merci

hello

verify if your theme supports homepage tabs

seems like it doesnt support them,

 

free version doesnt contain feature to create custom tabs not related to theme.

do you use recent version?

try on your own - it is possible to use it on addons marketplace without any kind of HACK!

 

upload it to your modules directory and it will work, you will be able to install it.

module is approved (technical validation) but not visible (marketing validation)

if you will upload free addon, they will validate it - it takes very looong time - but they do it (only technical validation, marketing validation is still pending)

at the moment, free modules from contributors arent visible on official marketplace (only partner modules are visible)

but in fact - addons are validated.

okay

i changed each free "featured category" addon post, i attached correct library everywhere

i totally undestand your confusion with the badge "TRUSTED ADDON"
now it's okay

 

im doing the same with all other free stuff that i've got

but it takes forever ;)

Is there a chance that I can duplicate this module and use it for more category blocks on my home page?. I tried duplicating the files and changing "featuredcategory" to "featuredcategory1" in all the codes. I managed to install the copy i made but when i change the category ID on the copy it also changes on original module, so i end up having 2 blocks on my homepage showing the same products.

Hi Vekia, first of all, ty for this module and your overall help in this forums

 

I installed featuredproducts fine. But I now want to move it to another hook, so i did the usual:

 

Add hook register on install() function:

   if (!parent::install() || !$this->registerHook('header') || !$this->registerHook('addproduct') || !$this->registerHook('updateproduct') || !$this->registerHook('deleteproduct') || !$this->registerHook('categoryUpdate') || !$this->registerHook('displayHomeTab') || !$this->registerHook('displayHomeTabContent') || !$this->registerHook('displayHome') || !$this->registerHook('displayRight'))

and create a duplicate hook function for my hook:

   public function hookDisplayRight($params)
    {
        return $this->hookDisplayHomeTabContent ($params);
    }

this usually works (I also tried calling hookDisplayHome), but not with this module. I guess its something related to index page, but i'm not sure as my php-fu is very limited.

 

Can you help me? Ty anyway

Hi Vekia i have one question.

Is it possible use custom url to display products from exact category ?

 

for example i want use this module on cms page and show products from category Shoes ... so is there option to use url like  www.example.com /cmspage?moduleoption=SHOES  ... ?? so that shoes on the end will tell to the plugin that i need to show only shoes ? 

 

 

thanks.

so, simply saying you just want to change the order of products, currently it shows for your products in order: from oldest to newest, and all you want to do to display it in other way from newest to oldest

 

right?

Hello.

 

I have the same problem/question. Is it possible to change the products order in the module? It can be done probably by changing something like "orderAscending to orderDescending" somewhere, but the real question is "where?".

 

Any help will be really appreciated.

Thanks, the module works. It creates another tab with featured products on home page. But could it be possible to unite homepage products tab with featured products tab so they will be one single continuous tab? And so the products in featured products are always displayed first?

Hi Vekia,

 

Many thanks for your free modules.

 

I tried this one but it does not works as I think :)

My Ps is v1.6.1.16

I configure it as 'Display in: HomePage'
It works but the result is displayed in list with pictures only.

Is it possible to display a grid rather than list please ?
