Has anyone tried to add this newest products function to Version 3.3 of X-cart? I can't get it to work on the newer version. Also, how would one plug this function into another page?

Hi,

Got it working on 3.3.3 and 3.3.4 and 3.3.5

Can you post the code that you are using or the errors that you are getting?

You need to do it with a text editor then upload the file using ftp to the directory specified. Not possible through the admin centre.

Default possible alternate page?

Having the newly added items is nice, but it seems to clutter up the main page especially if there are already some featured items already showing.

How about having a seperate menu selection in either the category or help menu or a custom menu to allow the customer to click on the "NEW" item button, and then it would display just the new items with the newest query.

I'll take a look into it of it's not already been done.

Agreed

Put together a few mods recently where the newest products are on a new page complete with navigation and clickable links to show the newest in the last week, two week, month etc. Then link tothis from the home page menu as you describe.
