Business Catalyst End of life announcement - find out more details.

You can feature a subset of products on a page. You can add or remove featured items by tagging or untagging products in Business Catalyst.

The workflow for creating a featured product list consists of the following steps:

  1. Tag the featured products with a specific tag.
  2. Insert a list of products defined by the tag.

Note: To add products to be displayed in the featured list, see Creating Products .

Tag featured products

  1. Open the product settings by selecting E-Commerce > Products and clicking the product from the list.

  2. From the Actions menu, select Tag this Item.

  3. If creating a new featured product list, define a tag for the items in the list:

    1. Click Manage Tags.
    2. Enter the name of the tag and then click Save Item. 

      Example: Sale products

    3. Click Go Back.
  4. Tag the product by moving the tag used to identify featured products from the left panel to the right.
  5. Select and tag other products that you want to feature.

Insert the product list in a page

  1. Open the page in editing mode by selecting Site Manager > Pages and clicking the page in the tree view.

  2. Place the cursor in the content editor where you want to insert the products.

  3. In the Modules tab of the Toolbox found on the right of the editor, select E-Commerce > Products, and then select List of Products by Tag.

  4. Enter the name of the tag used to identify the featured products.

    If you want to customize the list, click Customize and adjust the properties.

    Use the backup individual product layout by customizing the properties. This allows the featured products to be customized without affecting other product layouts.

  5. Click Insert.

    Business Catalyst inserts a placeholder tag representing the products. Example:{module_productfeaturelist,sale products}. When you publish the page, the products replace the placeholder tag.

  6. Click Publish or Save Draft.
