Vali, Nice addition to the Products Block: “same category” checkbox!
But, because I run the cart without tabs (so all the description, reviews, features, etc appear on the same page) adding a 4 grid block at the top of the page looks kind of silly on the rest of the page.
Didn't you publish a method to add a block to the Main Content without putting all the tabbed content/description into a 12 grid?
In order for the addon to actually select the “newest” items from the same category I had to change the parameter in the function of this addon so it selected timestamp rather than popularity:
on line 16 of func,php you had:
$params['sort_by'] = 'popularity';
I changed it to:
$params['sort_by'] = 'timestamp';
edit: it does appear as though the sort_by parameter could be removed entirely from the addon's function and that the default sort_by is timestamp (for newest products). The 'popularity' sort though was definitely throwing off the results and was not displaying the newest items.
