Listing Categories On Home Page

A common addition to the home page is to use the Widget tool to display a list of new products. You can also add a markup tag to the home page code to display a list of products from a specific category.

Home Page with Category Listing

To restore your previous home page, simply remove the comment tags from the original code, and comment out the markup tag. If you don’t plan to ever use the original code, it can be deleted from the page.
