I need some orientation here.

The front page field in products - I set this to a value, say "feature", and another variable elsewhere to that same value "feature" THEN the front page display shown with the showrandom call will display only products that have that feature on them, randomly selected to a maximum value that I specify. Is that correct? If I specify no value in these fields then the script will choose random items from the entire catalog, excluding those whose front page field I have set to something else. Is that correct?

Can I have multiple of these on the front page without modifying code? That is, one listing of featured, one of random?

It seems not.

I hope this is not too confusing. I'd appreciate some help here because these late nights are slaughtering me.

You'd need to make copies of the random product functions for each type of thing you want to show, and make various other changes.

Lots of other people have been asking for the kind of thing you're after, so we've just released a highly enhanced version of "FrontPage" (including top-sellers) as an addon:

I think that's the kind of thing you're after, as you'll then be able to showcase any type of product from/in any page without having to make any changes to the complex asp code and can just call the "ShowCase" function wherever/however you want.
