How can the solution provided in Magento limit the number of products shown with in the new products block be applied to a random products block displayed on the home page?
I currently have the code
<reference name="random"> <block type="catalog/product_list_random" name="product_random" template="catalog/product/grid_only.phtml"> <action method="setProductsCount"><count>3</count></action> </block> </reference>
in my layout update XML. The grid product view default value seems to be dominating this value which is set in the backend System > configuration > catalog > catalog > frontend > "Products per Page on Grid Default Value".
