[TomatoCart] A random feature products content module

Did you know, TomatoCart features a front page product listing feature? It is very simple to enable and you can use it to show any products, for example, the most popular products, products currently under promotion and so on.

An example can be seen in the following 2 images:

Snip20150622_1You have to enable the Front Page status of product in the admin panel. Then some of the enabled products will be shown in the home page.

Snip20150622_2The maximum number of products is able to be configured under admin panel > start menu > Templates > Templates Module > Content > Feature Products.

Snip20150622_3It means if you enabled 20 products as the feature products in the products grid, only 9 products will be shown in the home page. Moreover, the 9 products will not be changed. The other 11 products will not be shown anymore. So, this is the problem. You may wish to show the other 11 products too.

Now, let me teach you how to achieve it. Please apply following changes for the module:

Step 1. Download the module package at https://www.dropbox.com/s/a60tjvbgjjbw5g4/random_feature_products.zip?dl=0

Step 2. Unzip the package and then copy the templates fold into your tomatocart directory to override the original files.

After that, the feature products will be changed randomly. It means the feature products shown in the home page are different every time.

Please try it by yourself. In this case, all of enabled feature products will have chance to be shown in the home page.
