Hi,

I have inserted the widget to display new produtos this way:

1 - CMS> Pages>Home page, switch to the Content tab.
2 - click Insert Widget button
3 - In the Widget type select box choosed Catalog New Products List.
4 - Then select the number of the displayed products and the product listing template.
5 - click Insert Widget button.
6 - Click Save button

But unfortunately no new products are displayed on front page

The inserted widget code is:

{{widget type="catalog/product_widget_new" products_count="5" template="catalog/product/widget/new/content/new_grid.phtml"}}

Looking into file system for new_grid.phtml the file exists where and haves content:
/app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/widget/new/content/new_grid.phtml

using CE 1.7.0.2
Whats wrong?

By the way, is there any orther suggestions to display blocks with new products? Like horizontal scrooling new products

Thanks
