I want my New Products (list) widget to display the Title & Short Description of the items. E.g. www.pccasegear.com there "New products" section on there home page.

I've had a look at a few addons/extensions but none of them seem to do what I want. Is there a way I can edit this widget to display the Short Description on each product? Maybe even have a character limit.

At the moment I've just got

{{widget type="catalog/product_widget_new" display_type="all_products" products_count="10" template="catalog/product/widget/new/content/new_list.phtml"}}

EDIT2: Everything seems to be working (no error codes) with the below code. Except I keep getting "There are no products to display". I've tried setting today's date and future days with the same message. Is there something I'm missing?

  • paste the code from the file catalog/product/widget/new/content/new_list.phtml – Anshu Mishra Jun 17 '16 at 5:13

Add below code in your file

Add below code to when you want to ad in cms block or cms page:

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