The old What's New sidebox that automatically changes the product every 5 seconds without refreshing the page has a slight bug... or "under-feature" might be a better term.
There are multiple product types that come with Zen-cart: Product General, Document, Music, etc. The what's new scrollbox auto assumes your product will be product-general, so if someone clicks that item for more information from the scroller sidebox, it will load that item using the 'Product - General' template, and not the template that the item was actually designed under, so it won't show all the proper fields and data you want.
I've taken a quick look at the code, but couldn't see initially how to fix it. Can anyone else point me in the right direction. I've also tried contacting the creator, but there has been no response yet.
