There is a small problem in this mod, If I have total of 90 latest products and I am displaying only 8 products on homepage under "latest" so now what happens is that 1st 8 products are displayed in random order, 8 products are not getting selected from the 90 products that I have, any solution to this please ??

I try to use your .xml in a custom theme i use with custom Latest, Featured, Best seller etc modules.

I found in catalog/controller/module the name of these modules and what i did is changed the xml's line

<file name="catalog/controller/module/bestseller.php">
to
<file name="catalog/controller/module/my-custom-bestseller.php">

which of course didn't work ;D

I understand it can be a little more complicated than this but, can it be done?

Thanks!

What does "no-strain" mean?
Normally items are randomized by using the "rand()" mysql command. The problem with this is that the more products you have, the more items that must be randomized on the database. If you have a lot of products, it puts a large strain on the database having to randomize them all first, then only grabbing 10 of them.

So this mod uses a better method. It will pull more than the limit set and randomize them with php which is much faster and less intensive. Then return only the limit requested. Removing strain from the database.

UPDATED WITH 2.0.X SUPPORT
Forgive me for dragging this up... is the above 2.3 ready? I've just tried it and it would appear that it has any effect.
Happy to alter myself if need to... but help would be appreciated.
Cheers

Hi,
Thanks for the awesome mod. Can you please let me know if its possible to select only items with a sort order below a certain value (say below 2 for an example). It would be nice to select only higher priority items for a larger site. I'm not sure but i think it's a matter of adding p.sort_order<2 somewhere in getProductSpecials. I am open to it using either the specials sort order or the product sort order. Ideally the product sort order.


This mod works great as described though, so thank you! Version 2.3.0.2
