Recent Additions


The recent additions page gives store owners a built-in way to display new products on their store. To display these products, you can do any of the following:

1 - Directly invoke the link to http://www.yoursite.com/recentadditions.aspx in your site's skin. OR

2 - Call the xml package from your template.ascx (e.g. <div id="recentadditions"(!XmlPackageName="page.recentadditions.xml.config"!)< /div>)

The page defaults to a value of 180 days back from the current date to pull products using the CreatedOn value, for display on this page. In order to change that value, you will need to create a new AppConfig: RecentAdditionsNumDays

In your AppConfigs menu, click the Add AppConfig button, and enter these values:

Name: RecentAdditionsNumDays
Description: The number of days back from the current date to pull products using the CreatedOn date for display on the RecentAdditions.aspx page.
Value: 180 [or whatever value you desire]
Group: MISC
Advanced - Value Type: Integer
SAVE

 

The page defaults to a value of 100 maximum number of products to display on the page. In order to change that value, you will need to create a new AppConfig: RecentAdditionsN

In your AppConfigs menu, click the Add AppConfig button, and enter these values:
