ecommerce module 0.82 has featured products as a feature (no pun intended).

I can get the FeaturedProducts to work (<% If FeaturedProducts %>) but how do I get these products to appear when the parent page doesn’t have the products as children, e.g., the Home page would be a great place to display the featured products but I don’t want the Products as children of the Home page.

I think it is just a simple logic problem but I can’t get my head around it.

The best way to do this is:

1. Create a new page type for your home page e.g. HomePage
2. In the controller of the HomePage page type add a new function to get the featured products. This function won't rely on a relationship with itself to query the for the featured products rather it will just select the products that have been flagged as featured.


function getFeaturedProducts(){
			return DataObject::get("Product","FeaturedProduct = 1", "", "");
