Installation

Installation process is very simple. Just follow these steps:

  1. Once you purchased the extension, download the installation package by logging into your account and going to My Downloadable Products section.
  2. After you downloaded the installation package, log in to your store admin interface and go to System / Magento Connect / Magento Connect Manager.
  3. At the "Direct package file upload" section click on "Choose file" button, select the package file you just downloaded and click "upload".
  4. After upload is done, go back to the admin panel by clicking "Return to Admin" link at the top right.
  5. Go to System / Cache Management and refresh the Configuration cache.
  6. IMPORTANT! After finishing the initial installation steps above, you need to log out and log in back into your administration interface in order to see the extension configuration.
  7. When you log in back to your admin panel, your installation process is complete and you can now configure it at System / Configuration menu.

Important! Please read this first if you are using Apple Safari to download the installation package. By default Safari tries to open the "safe" file extensions, this includes the .tgz packages. Therefore it will uncompress the package upon download and will make it unfit for Magento Connect. To prevent this behavior in the menu bar, go Safari > Preferences. In the "General" tab, uncheck "Open 'safe' files after downloading". This will stop Safari from automatically unzipping the files. Read more on Stack Exchange here.

Use

You can use the New Products by Category Widget pretty much as any other Magento widget.

When editing the CMS page (such as your home page for instance, where is would be the most useful addition), click on the "Content" tab and insert the widget by clicking the "Insert Widget" button from the WYSIWYG toolbar above. Select the "Activo Catalog New Products by Category" as the widget type. Now you will see the widget options. You will need to select the category to select new products first. Please don't forget also to put in the custom title text and custom title URL for the section title. If you do not want the title to link anywhere, just put the "#" (hash) symbol instead of the URL.

You can customize a range of other grid options (see a screenshot above), such as a total number of new products to show, the number of columns, which product elements to show (price, add to cart button, add to whishlist, add to compare links etc.) as well as image size.

Remember that this widget will show only products that are marked as "new" in your catalog by selecting the "Set product as new" date range in the catalog product options.
