I would like to add limit to manual filling in product grid block (I mean this).


My use case:

I want to fill manually the new/bestseller block to better manage my sales. Thus I add let's say 30 products - and want only to display 12 products with active status.


Right now, when I add 12 products manually, than every time when I hide or disable the product status, then the product is hidden from the block as well.


I don't want to manage the products all the time. I want to have constant number of products in block - 12. When I hide the product, the next active product should fill the gap.


Is there any easy way to do this?


I think that this feature deserves to be implemented in standard cs-cart functionality.


Thanks in advance,

Most likely you would have to utilize a hook for the product search that is specific to the block.  I.e. you'd need code that said something like:


if the search is related to block xyz, then adjust the items per page to be 12.



Alternatively if this is a block that is used in several different locations, the block itself could be extended to add a 'max_items' parameter to it.


Both approaches require a small amount of custom development.
