More rows of products on the front page?

Hi all,

 

 

 

I have finally figured out a way to change the products that are showing on the front page (for those of you who could use this info also - all you need to do is go to the database {MySQL? Databases --> phpMyAdmin} and list all the products. Then - change the products_date_added value to the most recent one and that's it! that simple) ... no need to install any Contributions (and use programs like Winmerge to do what I consider to be a very difficult procedure of comparing files).

 

 

 

Anyway, I am now trying to figure out how to add more rows of product on the front page? If anyone would know how to do that - that would be great (or even suggest an easy to install Contribution for that). Also - being able to display 4 products in a row (instead of 3) would be nice.

 

 

Thank you all for all the great work you do here and for all your replies.

 

 

 

You are the best! :thumbsup:

If you are refering to the New Products For ...

go to admin section under Configuration Maximum Values New Products Module and change the number to however many you want to display.

Then for more columns, in catalog/includes/modules/new_products.php look around line39 for

 $col ++;
if ($col > 2) {
  $col = 0;
  $row ++;

change to 

$col ++;
if ($col > 3) {
  $col = 0;
  $row ++;

this will give you 4 columns
