Mr Teas - Replacing Home Page Item Slider with Complete Listing

This brief tutorial will show you how to replace the home page slider of featured items with a complete listing.   When we look at the template_home.vm we can see that there is a block of code beneath the Featured separator responsible for generating the slider.

All we need to do is remove that particular <div class="row"> through </div> from the template and then use a snippet of code from template_catalog_simple.vm.  The snippet of code is:

<div class="row">
  <section class="columns small-16 catalog-container">
    #if($group.getItemCount() > 0)
      <div class="row">
        <p>No items are assigned to this page.</p>

The end code should look like this:

Notice that we are basically reusing the group_item_list.vm snippet that does all the hard rendering work for us.
