Hi,

 

What happened to the possibility to display product filters on the home page in version 4.3.9? When I add a product filter block on the home page it doesn't display but it displays correctly on category and product pages. The possibility to check "Display on Home page" has disappeared from the product filter admin form.

 

Cheers

Make sure that you add the Product filters for home page block and not the Product filters one.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the information. I found the special home page block but I can't select any filter in the content tab. The filter search does not retrieve any filter I created.

PS: there isn't any documentation on this new feature

OK. What do you see when you go to the Products -> Filters page in the admin panel?

Hi,

 

I see 2 filters. One is filtered by price. The other one is filtered by stock. I tried to select specific categories or no categories at all (which should retrieve all actegories) but the filter never appears in the home page block when I click on Add filters.

 

Thanks

I am afraid, it is default behaviour. You can add here only filters by product features. Try to create test feature, filter by this feature and test. This filter will be available in the block manager

Hi everybody,

 

According to the CS-cart helpdesk it is not possible to add a "price" filter on the home page.

 

Thanks anyway to eComLabs for offering to help me.

I am posting in this old topic because what I have to add is directly relevant to it. I don't know if this will bump it, but I thought I would try. CS Cart is great software, but it is also very frustrating. It seems to me that the code is specifically built to promote the use of developers. This topic is one such case. 

 

Essentially, you can create product filters, but you can't use Price or Vendor as a filter ON THE HOME PAGE where it would be useful. If a customer does a search, they can both show up on the search results page. Even if the search is empty the filters will show up. How is it possible to allow that, but then to make special code to stop it from occurring on the home page. 

 

This goes even further with a simple Vendor name search. So useful, and it is right there in the software but somehow not allowed unless you engage a developer or do it yourself. 

 

I originally thought that it was to promote or prop up the Add-On market, but there are no add-ons for these items, or they are so poorly written and outdated that they are incompatible or can't be trusted. 

 

I know my rant will result in no resolution to this matter, but I hope it puts CS Cart on notice that if any competitor comes along, I will be looking hard at them. I have 2 more licenses I will need to buy this year and I will wait until the very last second in the hopes that another option comes along. 

 

I apologize to the developers here...you've got to make a buck, but there is only short term gain in this business model. Write better add-ons that are useful and keep CS Cart ahead or market share will disappear quickly. 

 

If you read this far...thank you.
