I also have issues getting the new products on the home page. What is strange is that I have a site at http://www.juguetesadiezeuros.es where it does work (Magento 1.4) and with my new site which I wanted more or less as a clone of the first it give me an error when I add the custom design layout update xml in the home page.
I just started learning this stuff and found this theme. Very nice indeed. I am having a couple of issues.
1. The slider isn’t working. So do I need to do some additional coding?
2. The bottom part of the theme isn’t showing up for some reason.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
I am running on release 22.214.171.124 and hosted on shared hosting by GoDaddy. No time outs so far. But be careful of them moving you to and upgraded server since the .htaccess file paths will be incorrect and screw up your development time.
