Filter

  • Categories - You can select the categories from where you want the products.
  • Featured - You can choose to only show those products, which are featured or not featured or all products.
  • Auto - You can choose to only show those products, where the "automatic" option is turned to "yes" or turned to "no" or all products.
  • Private - You can choose to only show those products, where the "private" option is turned to "yes" or turned to "no" or all products.
  • Language - You can filter out the products based on the language.
  • Item ID - Your products can show up on any pages, because that is how Joomla works, so your product's link can be as many links, as many menu items you have in your website. To make Joomla choose one of your menu items, you can give an Item ID, which will connect your product link to that page. This can be useful, when you want one of your menu items to be active, when you go to the link the url variable will lead. Also your different pages have different modules on them, so with the Item ID you will specify which modules will show up on this product page too. You see your pages' Item ID-s, if you turn off the SEO links in the System → Global Configuration → Search Engine Friendly URLs, then you will see it in the links of your pages in the frontend. If you leave the Item ID on 0, that will be the base Item ID, which is usually your Homepage. You can read more about this in here.
