New Products For October

Recommended Posts

this box is sometimes shoing up, and sometimes not.

 

the times that it does NOT show up occur in SOME of the categories.... not all of them.

 

Any suggestions of a place to look to fix this? I usually do not keep this box on any of my sites, but my customer really wants it this time, and i just need it to be consistent.

 

Thank you for your help

i believe since the the "what's new for month" box only show's new items from the category (and subcategories) of the one being viewed - then if there is nothing new in the currently viewed category (and subcategories) it has nothing to display...

 

what i mean...

 

let's say

"Cans" has 2 new items

and

"Cups" has 4 new items

and

"Glasses" has nothing new

 

- when on top level everything new from every category is displayed

- when in the "Cans" the box only displays new items from "Cans"

- since there is nothing new in "Glasses" when there is nothing new to be displayed

 

a possible quik (down and dirty) fix might be to expand the time as to what makes an item 'new' --- like if it currently only considers items added within a month 'new' - you can reset it to consider items added within 6 months 'new - not so good, but it might help - and be easy at that...

Well all of the products have been added during the month of october.... so everything should show up. But just in case.... where would I go to change the length of time that things would show up in that box?

 

THanks

to answer your question, we would need to see your category tree structure with those categories bolded that do not show the box.

category tree: what are your topcategories, what your next levels, how many levels, on what depth does the box not show
