My site is a 1 product cart. So I’d like to have the product detail as the home page.
I can’t seem to figure out how to get a product detail post (http://makinggoodbook.com/order/product/preorder/) to be treated as a Page. It’s defined as a product, and therefor is excluded from all admin UI navigation settings.
I would be overjoyed if I could use the product details (image, description, cart button, etc. as seen in the link above) in a template via Template Builder, but that too is just 1 level too high. I.e. I can create a template to display columns of other products, but not a single product one level deeper to the detail page.
Can you please explain what files I should alter? Is it something I can accomplish with taxonomy? Can I simply add the product ID to one of Propulsion’s loops?
I’m not aware of plugins or WP settings which make it possible to display single custom post type entries on the frontpage. You’ll need to create a custom template (index.php or frontpage.php) with a custom query, etc. to display the post. Some interesting tips can be found here: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/18013/how-do-you-use-a-cpt-as-the-default-home-page and here: http://www.golen.net/blog/wordpress-custom-post-type-as-static-home-page/
