I’ve just submitted a FREE new widget to MagentoConnect (just waiting for it to go live).

It’s to display products on the frontend, but you have more options over how they’re displayed.  Features include:
- featured products (specify the products to display in the widget using a product attribute)
- random products - instead of featured, the widget can select X random products from your catalogue
- group by category - you can choose to group products by category
- select categories - you can choose which categories products are selected from
- visual options (specify the number of products per row and number of products to select) to make sure the widget matches your site
- CSS - I’ve tried to create generic CSS styles, so that the widget will look good in all common themes.  I’ve tried in on various themes, and it seems look great.

Feature requests:  I’m hoping to add more functionality to this widget, including the option of bringing in best selling and new products as options.  I’m also open to user requests to improve this widget

Price: It’s completely free to use

Download: As soon as it’s out on MagentoConnect I’ll post a URL, for now you can get it from here

Sorry, updated the link now.

There’s no special install procedure, if you upload the contents of the app and skin folder to your store (don’t overwrite those two folders obviously!) then the widget will appear as an option in the WYSIWYG widget menu.

Sorry, the previous link to the zip file actually downloaded the PEAR package.  If you download again you’ll find there’s only an app and skin folder!

Hi,

I would like to be able to display only 1 product on my homepage where we currently have the special offers image on the top right on http://www.simplyearplugs.co.uk.

Can you please advise if this will work for that purpose?

Thanks and kind regards. Pari.

Appreciate your hard work on this. Certainly the features will help boost up online sale performance then.

I get the exact same problem, uploaded all files to the server but the widget doesn’t show up?

Surely something else has to be done so it can be used?

UPDATE Got it working (really obvious fix) try refreshing the magento cache, worked for me widget now shows up and is working like a charm, thanks for this great Free widget!

Thanks for the widget, it will be very useful in our shop http://www.miespaciogourmet.com.

For other users, remember delete caches after copy folders of ZIP.
