Fusion for new Instal?

Hi.

I am a new Cubecart user, and not much of a code adjuster.  I am looking for a way to keep my main page fresh rather than having the "latest products" showing.  This is of course fine while I am adding products, but I would rather have a mix of items showing.  I am aware I can somewhat do this by controlling the products that have "latest" ticked, but have already run into the problem of not being able to isolate easily from admin which products have currently got "latest" ticked. So my questions are...  First of all is there an easy way to search for products in my shop that are currently ticked as "latest products" so I can untick some of them?.  I have come across "fusion" being mentioned a few times on the forum, but also understand it is no longer available for download. I also understand this plugin may have been able to give me the functionality I am looking for.  So my second question ....Is there another way I could have a mix of "latest products, featured product and sale items showing in the main content? 

I am using a slightly modified version of the Foundation skin.  My website is https://knicknacs.com.au

 

Thanks in advance

"Is there an easy way to [sort] products that are currently ticked as 'latest products'?"

No. There will need to be a small edit made to two admin files.

"Is there a way I could have a mix of Latest Products, Featured Product and Sale Items showing in the main content?"

I will have to assume by "Main Content", you mean to move the Featured Product and Sale Items to intermingle with, or be placed above or below the Latest Products, as opposed to where they are now located.

There are some interesting mods you should look at. Here is one:

Thank you for the quick response!.  I would like  the Featured products and sale items to be placed above or below the latest products.  I looked at the mod you suggested, but it is not quite what I want as it only showcases one item.  My problem is that if I stop uploading new items for a while my homepage would look pretty much look the same whereas I would like visitors to see different products every time they visit. I read a post about changing the swapping the latest products with featured products, but not sure if this would work for V6.

In Foundation, we would need to make some edits to the skin to place the right side column panels into the Main Content area. Then, of course, redesign the side panels to show the data in the same format as the Latest Products.

Completely within the realm of the do-able.

There was also a conversation about limiting the number of Latest Products to show, but have many more to choose from randomly.

That was one of the mods I suggested you look at. Others are:

hmmm.. I quite like the right side columns just the way they are, so don't want to change that.  I may look further into how I can manipulate the "latest products".  How do I get the "latest products" display randomly?  It just shows the latest added at the top just now.  

Ok.  Just received some more links from you to look at.  Thanks.  Will check them out.

Ohh... I like the random one and the featured one.  http://www.cubecartforums.org/index.php?showtopic=19201.

Thanks again.

Thank you very much!.  I think I am on the right track.  I will address the rest of my questions to the developer.

Perhaps the minimum age thingy is part of the "featured" one...just in case I decide to branch out from "Knicknacs" to "Knockers"  :lol:.

Cheers
