Hands-On: The Product Catalog View


With our products nicely categorized, and the individual items looking good, the last step is to design a top-level catalog overview page using the Views module. In this lesson we'll create a catalog view and use relationships to pull in our product data. We'll also need to aggregate multiple products into one item so we don't have a crazy list of every possibility as individual items, and we'll wrap it all up nice and tidy by grouping the products based on taxonomy.
