A simple add-on to let you display an index new products on your site
This allows you to set the number of days from which the new products are selected. If no new products added in that period nothing is displayed.
So you could set it to show new products added in last week, month or year.
You can change the title to whatever you prefer “New products this week”
Again totally stand-alone with no core code change. Simply copy all files into relevant sections and go to admin and install.
