image size in "Hot deals" section

Hi all,

A simple question (I hope): How do I increase the size of the images or pictures in the “hot deals” section of the home page?

Thanks in advance for the solution and/or help,


In skins/your-skin/customer/addons/hot_deals/blocks/hot_deals.tpl you should have something similar to:

{include file="common_templates/image.tpl" image_width=75 image_height=75 obj_id="`$block.block_id`_`$product.product_id`" images=$product.main_pair object_type="product" capture_image=true show_thumbnail="Y"}

Just change the 75s to whatever you want.

As long as you don’t go too far overboard, the styles should still work. If you change the dimensions to 100, it looks pretty good.

Hope that helps,



I did what you stated and saved the file. however, when I goto my home page, the images are the same size.

(One slight difference, which I believe was just a typo… I went to the following directory: customer/addons/hot_deals_block/blocks. The filename was the same, though).

Am I missing something? Thanks for you help. I do appreciate it.
