    Default New Product link on main page?

    Hi there,

    I think there has been a new product link in the sidebar on my main page before, but I must have deleted it somehow because I figured I didn't need it. Now I do need it, but I can't get it back. I have searched around the forum and tried a lot of different stuff, but I can't seem to get it back...

    My question is; Is there a New Product link somewhere to be placed in the sidebar, along with the different categories? I would like it to be like a category on it's own, that automatically displays all the new products listed the last month for instance...

    If it exists: How do I get it back there?

    Hi,

    In the Admin click on the Configuration menu and select Layout Settings. In the list of options is one called 'Categories Box - Show Products New Link', this needs to be set to True.

    The New Products link will also only appear if there actually are new products to list.

    I hope that helps.

    Regards,
    Christian.

    ... and one more thing:
    Now I have the new product link where I want it, thanks again!,
    but how do I get it to show the products the same way as it does in my other categories? I'm not sure if you understand what I mean, but I would like it to be listed a bit differently than it actually does... Where do I go to change the look of it?

    Thanks again! I am so greatful this forum exists!!!

    It is hiding away under Configuration > Maximum Values > New Product Listing - Limited to ...

    It depends on what you want to change but some of the new products listing appearance can be changed by tweaking the settings under Configuration > New Listing in the Admin.
