New Admin, Need Help Updating Homepage Carousel

New Admin, Need Help Updating Homepage Carousel



I am a fairly new Magento admin/webmaster and I am working to complete this site:


Can someone please explain how to update the banner carousel BELOW the main banner?

I am trying to update those category images (3 appear per rotation) ie. Men's Jacket, Women's Polo, Women's Lounge, etc.


I cannot figure out how to locate and swap out the featured images appearing in that carousel.


Any help is MOST appreciated.


Thank you!

Hi @justinjross


Check into the homepage code. You can edit the homepage from: CMS -> Pages.
Check the code and find the place you want to edit or you can share the code and I can help you edit the appropriate place.

Hi Dhirenvasoya,


Thanks so much for the reply.


When I go to the content section of the homepage via the "CMS >pages" path I get the following code:

<div class="headingBox container" style="text-align: center;">
<h2 class="line_heading"><span>Products</span></h2>
<div>{{block type="core/template" template="custom/home_categories.phtml"}}</div>


I did notice that one of the pages I can select is called "Kartparadigm Home Page"


Perhaps this is the carousel in question?

The code in that content looks like this:

<h2>Featured Products</h2>
<p>{{block type="catalog/product_list" column_count="3" category_id="5" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}</p>
<hr />
<p><img id="e3t3aWRnZXQgdHlwZT0iY2F0YWxvZy9wcm9kdWN0X3dpZGdldF9uZXciIGRpc3BsYXlfdHlwZT0iYWxsX3Byb2R1Y3RzIiBwcm9kdWN0c19jb3VudD0iMTAiIHRlbXBsYXRlPSJjYXRhbG9nL3Byb2R1Y3Qvd2lkZ2V0L25ldy9jb250ZW50L25ld19ncmlkLnBodG1sIn19" title="{widget type=&quot;catalog/product_widget_new&quot; display_type=&quot;all_products&quot; products_count=&quot;10&quot; template=&quot;catalog/product/widget/new/content/new_grid.phtml&quot;}" alt="" src=" /></p>


Any ideas?

Thanks again for all your help!
