This addon will allow you to show a random list of products where the "New Products for...(current month)" list shows (ie on the index and for each category). There are other addons out there that do the same thing, but I wanted a simplified and more efficient setup instead of creating extra pages and doing a lot of extra editing. This addon uses the default OSC files and code instead (only two files to edit).
This addon is admin configured so you can toggle back and forth between random products or the default new products whenever you like. This is useful say if you haven't added all that many products lately and you would rather not see the same set of "new" products all the time. This way you can keep your index page rotating with fresh products until you have a set of new products you want to showcase instead.
