Re: Home page display multi categories

Hello kerrykwong,

 

What do you mean "multi categories" here? You mean that you want to shows all root categories in your current store view? I think you shouldn't do this because you must custom default code. Just create sub categories under current root category.

Re: Home page display multi categories

Hello kerrykwong,

 

The reason for dispalying duplicated categories is that the same name in your block:

 

<reference name="content">
<block type="catalog/product_list" name="featured" template="catalog/product/list.phtml">
<action method="setCategoryId"><category_id>3</category_id></action>
<action method="setColumnCount"><count>5</count></action>
</block>
</reference>
<reference name="content">
<block type="catalog/product_list" name="featured" template="catalog/product/list.phtml">
<action method="setCategoryId"><category_id>7</category_id></action>
<action method="setColumnCount"><count>5</count></action>
</block>
</reference>

 

You should change the name of second block. e.g name="featured-2".

Sure that clear your Magento Cache before refreshing your page.
