Magento’s default theme doesn’t display the SKU on the product page. This is a pretty easy modification to get this working properly.

Magento: Display More Than 5 New Products

Posted on December 5th, 2012 | Posted by admin

Sometimes we have to display more new products than default number. The default count of new products in Magento is fixed only 5. But you can display more than 5 new products without modifying Magento core files. You can use below code for setting new product count according to your requirement.

  1. {{block type=“catalog/product_new” name=“”
  2. alias=“product_homepage” template=“catalog/product/new.phtml”
  3. _productsCount=“20″}}

The “_productsCount” determine how many new products will be displayed. Here I have set 20 product but you can change this according to your requirement.

Display multiple image for particular product

I’ve seen some solutions out there that modify core code, some that just take a file and move it to your /app/code/local/ retaining the same directory structure, so as to just override the file. I don’t recommend either of these methods (especially the first), as with a true module you are setting up a much better environment over time for this to last. And a module allows you to ONLY override the methods you need to modify, instead of entire classes. Plus, you can easily disable the module right in the admin (Admin >> System >> Configuration >> Advanced).

Be sure you replace all of the “YOURSTUFF” with your name or company name.

I have only tested this with
Step 1:

Create the file: /app/etc/modules/YOURSTUFF_ImportMultipleImages.xml. This file tells Magento that you have this module and where it is located.
