Hi,

Does any one know if there is an extension that will enable me to set categories to randomly display the products on the front end?

At present the order in which products are displayed in a category on the front end is determined by the numeric order number assigned to a product in the category settings. However, I want to let Magento (an extension) randomly display these in any order on the front end each time the page is refreshed etc

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Howdy James,

I know how to do the complex way of sorting the products using an attribute of your own choice but random…. Passs.!

Anyone?

Hi James,

Further thought, I’d just whip a dob on oDesk outlining what you want to happen and see what kind of quotes you come back with.
