Am working on Magento 1 Store

I want to show only new products of particular category on a page. Suppose i have category of shirts so i want to show only 8 new products of that category on page.

i tried to use this block to show only category products but its not respecting the product limit.

{{block type="catalog/product_list" column_count="8" category_id="43" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

Try this code:

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="CATEGORY_ID" template="catalog/product/list.phtml" column_count="5" products_count="10"}}

Note : Replace CATEGORY_ID with numeric category id.

  • Thanks for help sir, but on frontend product count is not being respected as it shows all the products of that category. Commented Jun 11, 2018 at 7:23
  • can you add this code on you phtml <?php $_productCollection=$this->getLoadedProductCollection(); $_helper = $this->helper('catalog/output'); $_productCollection->clear()->setPageSize($this->getData('products_count'))->load(); ?>
