JM Products on homepage & "New" category

Hi there,
I recently installed a template using the quickstart install method and found that products displayed on the homepage have to be assigned to the “New” category before they are listed in the results.
JM Products is configured as “Latest” and selected categories is set to “All”. I’ve added an additional product to those products setup via the quickstart install and it’s not displaying unless added its to the “New” category. And when I change the JM Products selected categories to an individual category it does not seem to limit the results to the selected category.
Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong? Or am I missing something in CMS Pages/Static blocks that is controlling the list of products being displayed on the homepage.
Thanks in advance

Hi Lara.
I’ve been doing some more testing and i cant find the static block in question. Looking at the homepage Magento CMS/Page  i can see the following block of code:
<reference name=”content”>
<block type=”joomlart_jmproducts/list” name=”home.jmproducts.list” template=”joomlart/jmproducts/list.phtml”>
<block type=”catalog/product_list_toolbar” name=”product_list_toolbar” template=”catalog/product/list/toolbar.phtml”>
<block type=”page/html_pager” name=”product_list_toolbar_pager”/>
<action method=”setToolbarBlockName”><name>product_list_toolbar</name></action>
Then i change the first line of code to:
<block type=”joomlart_jmproducts/list” name=”home.jmproducts.list” template=”joomlart/jmproducts/list.phtml” mode=”top_rated” quanlity=”1″ perrow=”1″>
But there is no change. Am i looking at the right thing? Still confused as the the New/Latest feature. It is not documented anywhere that New/Latest relies on the use of the “category named New”.
Thanks again
