Showing other shops, items etc on a Homepage?

Hi Guys.

I am hoping you can point me in the right direction.

So i am 90% finished on my theme on my multisite website and the i am wanting to have my own page to show products / shop items from every other shop randomly and automatically. Is this possible? I don't really know how people will know the other shops on their and advertise their products without this?

Any help on this would be a huge, huge help.

Example:

So my main site homepage at the moment is showing a register page. But instead i would like it to be like etsy which will show items or even if its just the shops which are on there. So people will see examples of what my site is about and again to advertise for people.

Thanks.

    Hi @lee,

    Welcome to wpmudev.

    If you have network activated marketpress, you can use the global shortcodes.

    by default, you can use the /marketplace slug on your main-site.

    http://domain.com/marketplace

    Or use the global shortcodes on a page.

    Global Products List [mp_list_global_products] - Displays a network-wide list of products according to preference.
    Optional Attributes:
    "paginate" - Whether to paginate the product list. This is useful to only show a subset. Default: 1
    "page" - How many products to display in the product list if "paginate" is set to true. Default: 20
    "per_page" - How many products to display in the product list if "paginate" is set to 1.
    "order_by" - What field to order products by. Can be: date, title, price, sales, rand. Default: date
    "order" - Direction to order products by. Can be: DESC, ASC. Default: DESC
    "category" - Limits list to a specific product category. Use the category Slug
    "tag" - Limits list to a specific product tag. Use the tag Slug
    "show_thumbnail" - Whether to show the product thumbnail. Default: 1
    "thumbnail_size" - Max thumbnail width/height. Default: 150
    "show_price" - Whether to show the product price. Default: 1
    "text" - Choose "excerpt", "content", or "none". Default: excerpt
    "as_list" - Whether to show as an unordered list. Default: 0
    "paginav" - Whether to show the prev/next pagination. Default: 1
    Example: [mp_list_global_products paginate="1" page="0" per_page="10" order_by="price" order="DESC" category="downloads"]
    You may also use the mp_list_global_products() template function in your theme with the same arguments.
    Global Tag Cloud [mp_global_tag_cloud] - Displays global most used product tags in cloud format from network MarketPress stores.
    Optional Attributes:
    "limit" - Maximum amount of tags to display. Default: 45
    "seperator" - String to seperate tags by, like a comma, etc.
    "include" - What to show, "tags", "categories", or "both". Default: "both"
    Example: [mp_global_tag_cloud limit="55" seperator=", "]
    You may also use the mp_global_tag_cloud() template function in your theme with the same arguments.
    Global Categories List [mp_global_categories_list] - Displays a network-wide HTML list of product categories according to preference.
    Optional Attributes:
    "limit" - Text to display for showing all categories. Default: 50
    "order_by" - What column to use for ordering the categories. "count" or "name". Default: count
    "order" - Direction to order products by. Can be: DESC, ASC. Default: DESC
    "show_count" - Whether to show how many posts are in the category. Default: 0
    "include" - What to show, "tags", "categories", or "both".
    Example: [mp_global_categories_list limit="30" order_by="name" order="ASC" show_count="1" include="both"]
    You may also use the mp_global_categories_list() template function in your theme with the same arguments.

    You can find the global shortcodes listed in the network settings.

    Network Dashboard > settings > marketpress

    Hope this helps
