In one of our past blogs we discussed about the improvements in the admin panel in Magento 2. In this blog, we will show you how to display products in Magento 2 page in a few easy steps.

Let us say, for example, that you want to add a list of products for a specific category in the home page, instead of showing some static contents. You may have noticed that it is not automatically displayed on your Magento website Home Page. This is because you need to specifically instruct Magento to display certain category or group of products such as those marked as “New” on the home page.

Magento 2 has introduced an improved widget option. With the help of the widget option, you can easily add dynamic contents like specific category, new products,etc.

Easy Steps to Display Products in Magento 2 Home Page

The screen shot below shows an empty home page. The steps below will walk you through as to how to add a specific category products in the home page.


Login to Magento Admin page and go to Content->Pages


 Select the Edit option from the Home Page


Click the Content tab from Left Side navigation section


Remove the existing content from that page and click the widget icon from the editor.


Select the widget type as ‘Catalog Products List’ and enter the basic information. In the bottom you can see the conditions to add.  Select the option ‘Category’ and select the category you want to display in home page and click “Insert Widget” button.


That’s it. Save the page and clear the cache.


Now you will be able to see the products of the specific category in the Home Page.
