Hi, I am wondering why is it not possible to have custom product list in the Category Product Collection (just like a tab with custom list in Custom Product Collection)
It´s much easier to add the products that way, rather then using featured products.
How does the feature product list work, I thought, that products marked "show on homepage" would be categorized as featured product but my products that are marked "show on homepage" do not show up if I select featured as a sort method
In order to have a Category
collection, you need to have a Category and products associated to it. You need to be able to access that Category's page, too.
With Custom products you have no such page. This is precisely why the Smart Product Collections
plugin has a separate section for Custom Product Collections
You can always create a custom category
with the products you want to show and then use the Category Product Collection
functionality, otherwise, the Custom Product Collections
is the only way to go.
As for the featured products, you are correct, the Show on home page
option marks them as featured
. There must be another issue there. You can submit a ticket for that so we can investigate what the problem might be.
