    Store Settings

    I'm confused with the choices and what they mean. :confused:

    Random Home Specials --- Number of Prod --- All Prod
    If this is left unchecked, do only those individual products marked as Home Specials show up? Or does it need to be checked in order for those to show up? I guess the word "random" is confusing me.

    What's the difference between checking and not checking All Products"

    Random Related Prod --- Number of Prod. --- All Prod
    I assume this is what shows up on the product page. If you want only products from the same category, do you leave the All Prod unchecked?

    Items on Account Page -- Number of Prod
    Are these only products the customer has looked at before?

    Items on View Cart --- Number of Prod
    What is this setting for? If you view cart and it has four items and I have it set to 3, it won't show the 4th item? Or is it just meant for the right column cart with items listed?

    If you click all products, the software will pick items at random and place them on the home page. If you do not, instead it grabs any item which has "home special" checked. The random makes it so your home is different each time....after all who wants to see the same items on special over, and over, and over :)

    If you check all products, the related products are random from any items in the store. You could have Batteries showing as a related product to a DVD movie. I guess its kind of useless unless you sell all related items. Ie. All cooking items. If you do not check it, it will use random products from the same categorie. The idea is that if you are looking at wooden spoons, other wooden spoons display.

    >Items on Account Page -- Number of Prod
    >Are these only products the customer has looked at before?

    These are the ones that show up in My account, when a customer logs in. Note that the system already removes products that the customer purchased, so that it only offers them items they never tried in the past.

    This is the view cart page, you can specify how many products display in that page. If you put 4 and you have 3 columns setup, there will be 2 rows of items, 1 with 3 and one with 1.
