Customizing home page

Customizing home page

Hi,

 

We have inherited a Magento site and wondered if you could possibly help us with an issue we are having.

 

Our site at http://watchesandsunglasses.perryworld.co.uk/ has a block of brand logos across the bottom of the home page and we want to be able to link each logo to it's associated product list.

 

For example we want the Emporio Armani logo to link to http://watchesandsunglasses.perryworld.co.uk/emporioarmani.html but at the moment it links by brand id to http://watchesandsunglasses.perryworld.co.uk/shopbybrand?brand=19

 

Do you know how we can change it so it links to the correct product?

We did find the .php file that outputs the logos at
app/design/frontend/lingraytime\default\template\page\html\brand_footer.phtml but we do not know where it gets the data from to create the output.

 

Any help would really be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Richard

Re: Customizing home page

Hi,

 

An update on this.

 

We have created the grid of manufactures by going into atrributes and edited the manufacturers attribute.

We then went to Mange Label/Options and added the 12 manufacturers. When we check in the database each record has been created as follows

16   81   0   http://watchesandsunglasses.perryworld.co.uk/media... ( this is the Armani record)

 

When we click on the Armani logo it goes to 

http://watchesandsunglasses.perryworld.co.uk/shopbybrand?brand=19 - showing no items - but we want it to go to http://watchesandsunglasses.perryworld.co.uk/emporioarmani.html which shows the products

 

Hope that makes sense - Any help would really be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Richard

 

Re: Customizing home page

It loads images from media/wysiwyg folder, hence it's highly likely that there's a static block (they can be found under CMS menu item) that contains those logos. Another option is that footer template loads it from somewhere, but without code to work on there isn't much I can do to help you.

Thanks for your reply.

 

As we had inherited the site we spent a bit of time delving into the code and found they had written there own module to achieve this. We changed this to achieve what we needed.

 

We are new to Magento so we are on a bit of a learning curve but appreciate all the help we are getting from yu guys.

 

Cheers
