How to display NEW products on the HOME PAGE

Posted on September 24th, 2014 | Posted by admin

First you will need to set some products as new. To do that you will need to edit some products and mark them as new, from the “General” product information page, by setting up the ”Set Product as New from Date” and “Set Product as New to Date”.

After you’ve set up a few products as new you, now, can display them on the home page by going to “CMS – Manage Pages” and select “Home Page” from the list of pages and add this code on the CMS page:

{{block type="catalog/product_new" name="" alias="product_homepage" template="catalog/product/new.phtml"}}

Add a Backorder Message on Magento’s Product Page

Magento’s use of backorders does notify the customer, but only once you actually reach the basket page, which can lead to disappointment and frustration from the customer. The better answer is to display this on the product page, in place of the “In Stock” message.

To acheive this, we just need to amend (read: override) the templates at

app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/type/simple.phtml app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/type/grouped.phtml app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/type/configurable.phtml

And amend it to look like this:
