I have a store situation I am trying to configure using the Emporium theme.  The store sells Amish made furniture and home goods, but also has a food stand and sells Ice cream, hot dogs, hot sausages, drinks and other miscellaneous food items.  I decided to create a category for the food stand products named "Food Stand" and assigned the category to the food stand products.

The food stand products are now showing up in the "New Offers" JCarousel display as "Recently Added Products", but I don't want the food stand items to appear in the "New Offers" JCarousel.  Is there away to exclude a product category when selecting "Recently Added Products" as the data source?

Hi hjksunderlin,

There is no way to exclude certain products from the Recently added as it simply checks if the product is added recently as the name suggest.
If you want a custom list of products then you can simply manually add the required products and call them "Recently added" without adding any of the products you would like to exclude.

Boyko,

I want the list to pull "Recently Added Products" without have to update the plugin manually each time a new product is added and I don't want the food stand items appearing in the list when a new food item is added.  The plugin needs to remain automated to limit changes.  I am working on an ecommerce site for a store with less than 5 employees and they don't have time to make changes to every plugin for manual changes.  Having a bit more control of the data source to allow custom data that the default options don't provide would be ideal.  

I submitted a ticket for a change.  So hopefully my request will be taken seriously.
