Displaying Products in Magento Home / Front Page

It's been a long time since my last post, i've been very busy with magento and now i want to share what i know just in case someone need it.

Ok, as i already mention in my last post that magento is a lil ( a lot?) bit confusing to me because some times we need to write a script or line of code to make things work. Not everything can be set and arrange from GUI just like i did with a CMS. My last problem is how to display products on my magento store frontpage, i've clicked around and found CMS menu that lead me to Manage Pages interface. From here i saw lists of pages that i can manage and obviously i choose home page coz i thought there's a lot of settings in there that can grant my wish to displaying my products on home page, but...........

That's the story and now here's how to :

Don't forget to create a category and make it child and anchor of default category.
Create your products as much as possible :D and assign it to the right category.
Goto CMS->Manage Pages.
Click on Home Page.
In General Information tab there's Content text input box. This is where you type this code :

To display new product :
{{block type="catalog/product_new" name="" alias="product_new" template="catalog/product/new.phtml"}}

To display most viewed product :
{{block type="mostviewed/list" name="home.mostviewed.list" alias="product_homepage" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

To display product from a category :
{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="Category-ID” template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

To display random products :
{{block type="catalog/product_list_random" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

That's how to display a products on home page, make me crash since i'm not a teachie guy but i'll live :D
Well, i hope that will help someone who don't already know how to display products on magento home page.
