new category on home page

Hi,

I just upgraded, and some changes have influenced the customizations I made.

Previously, I had a featured products category show up on my store front home page. I did this by editing:
catalog->controller->common->home.php

changing this line to:
foreach ($this->model_catalog_product->getLatestProducts(8) as $result) {

to:
foreach ($this->model_catalog_product->getProductsByCategoryId(38,'','','',12) as $result) {

Can someone tell me how to do this in 1.4.8b.

Also, I want to add:
$_['error_postcode'] =

Where did the file go with these error variables.

Thank you.

Think what you are looking for for the home page is under /catalog/view/theme/default/template/module/latest_home.tpl now

no, that is just a template. But, where can I change it from showing the latest products, to a different category ("featured products" category) on the home page.

Latest, featured, specials, and bestsellers all have the ability to be set on the home now from the admin. Just configure the module and change the position to Home

Always good to read the change log when upgrading

Are you sure it is the module that comes default with OC?

In my 1.4.9.1 patched to 1.4.9.2 I can set it to Links, Rechts and Home.
