Hello all,

I'm on Odoo 8. 

I can not believe that it is not possible to use my products on the homepage... How to use a products slideshow, best selllers or a random product there?

I can not believe that we can only see our product images only in the shop page.

Could you help please?


IIRC there are website themes which offer such building blocks.

Why you can't show products in your homepage? you could extends your homepage template and add product relations to the website to do that.

I have developed a qweb widget that render products like in the shop using a template that you can use in the page that you want, if you still need it let me know. I'm working on building a saas shop and I need it too

In some newer website themes you have the following snippets available:

- product list

- product slideshow

Other apps available in the app store:

You can do this with the default building blocks.

Insert any building block containing an image (there are a dozen to choose from) and just configure a clickable URL link that goes to the same product in your Shop.

To do this, click on the image, then from the formatting toolbar, select the Link button or the keyboard shortcut CTRL + K


You can shorten the URL to your product by just using the number portion:

this is not really a dynamic solution. But I get some interesting results. Thanks

Tomorrow, i will try this app who really seems to be what i need.


The approach used on that module is load the product list using js and render the result product carousel on the client side.
