Get product in your home page with pagination in magento

At last i have got a good solution of this problem
in your home CMS remove

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="3" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

from your Content area and add

<reference name="content">
block type="catalog/product_list" name="product_list" template="catalog/product/list.phtml">
action method="setCategoryId"><category_id>3</category_id></action>
block type="catalog/product_list_toolbar" name="product_list_toolbar" template="catalog/product/list/toolbar.phtml">
block type="page/html_pager" name="product_list_toolbar_pager"/>
action method="setToolbarBlockName"><name>product_list_toolbar</name></action>

in your left menu Design -> Page Layout under Layout Update XML
now your pagination will come..

Change your catalog template in magento

It is very good idea to change catalog template
it control from catalog.xml of your theme folder open it and find this code
<catalog_category_default translate="label">

<label>Catalog Category (Non-Anchor)</label>
after this code add this
<reference name="root">

<action method="setTemplate"><template>page/2columns-right.phtml</template></action>

if you want to change your template into 2columns-right

Add your Popular Tags in your magento frontend

This was a small problem but it was big to me
if you want to set your popular tag then first select the location where you want to add it (right or left panel) just go to the


<!-- Mage_Tag -->

<reference name="right">

<block type="tag/popular" name="tags_popular" template="tag/popular.phtm">

<action method="setTemplate"><template>tag/popular.phtml</template></action>


</reference> </default>

find this code and change
if you want to keep it left then or leave it
