How to display specific product IDs

In this guide, we will show you how to display specific product SKUs in product slider. In Mageplaza Product Slider for Magento 2, there is no Block/class supports this feature. So how?

No worry, there is very simple way to do this. First of all, you should create a new category and don’t show this category in Menu.

Then associate products what you want to display in Product slider into this category. E.g in this guide, my category id is 10 then you can insert the following snippet to CMS static block, XML file or .phtml file

Add Block Category Id paste to CMS page

{{block class="Mageplaza\Productslider\Block\CategoryId" template="Mageplaza_Productslider::productslider.phtml" products_count="8" category_id="10" heading="Category" description="Here is your category description"}}

Add Block New Products by file layout

<block class="Mageplaza\Productslider\Block\NewProducts" name="product.slider.  newproduct" template="productslider.phtml">
      <arguments>
        <argument name="products_count" xsi:type="number">8</argument>
        <argument name="margin" xsi:type="string">5</argument>
        <argument name="heading" xsi:type="string">New Products</argument>
        <argument name="description" xsi:type="string">Here is your new products   description </argument>
      </arguments>
 </block>

.phtml file

::
<?php echo $block->getLayout()->createBlock(‘MageplazaProductsliderBlockNewProducts’)->setTemplate(‘productslider.phtml’)->toHtml();?>
