I have installed the Lite theme as per instructions but I’m unable to filter out the Best Sellers / Featured products.
I have created a separate site with database and installed the Theme via Magento Connect. All CMS blocks are being created correctly and also the attributes for Best Sellers and Featured are available. When I edit my products and don’t set anything for these attributes, there are still hits on the front page. When I only select one product, the displayed products remain the same.
I have flushed the cache and session data and reloaded my test site in Chrome.
Thank you for writing in.
Which version of magento are you using?
That should be fine in the supported versions i.e. 1.7 and above , we have it all tested.
Can you provide us the url, so that we can check something there?
I’m running Magento 184.108.40.206 at update.kleinebolletjes.nl. When I look at the PHP part of the best-sellers PHTML file I can see the catalog selection, but no redefinement to the specific attribute. Where is this defined ? I can select the value in the product, but this does not affect anything.
Updating the phtml file (app/design/frontend/accessshop/default/template/catalog/product/home-featured.phtml (similarly home-best-sellers.phtml for best sellers) for featured products and overrite the existing productcollection) solved in your case.
Thank you for your efforts. I have tested it and it works as a charm. Was this a general issue or something specific in my configuration ? When I look at the file now, I can see the selection of the attrribute taking place.
Your theme is serving my needs perfectly, it has more features in the front page than I need but these might come in handy in the future. One of the best things this theme also offers opposed to my current theme is the detection of the mobility by Google. My current theme is responsive, but this is not noted by Google 🙁
