"Related" products/template question

First off, let me just say that while I'm still finding a few things that I struggle with, cpshop is a fantastic tool, and I very much appreciate all Marty has done and continues to do.

I have a question that I'll do my best to explain...

I want to customize my product page.  Basically, I am tickled with just the basic, out-of-the-box look...picture, description, color/size pickers, add to cart...basically, everything that is called by the <[content]> tag.

what I would like to do, and have no idea if it is possible, is to ADD to that page the thumbnails of all the other products in that category.

So a visitor would be looking at a page with the Organic Tee, for example...and let's say I feature that same design on a Hoodie and a Ringer tee.

is there a way to throw in a "We also feature this design on these items", and right below that shows up the thumbnails of those 2 items?

This may have been answered, but I couldn't find it...and it may not even be possible...I just don't know quite enough about the coding yet to figure that out.

I appreciate any and all responses.

cpshop doesn't offer that functionality, and there's no easy way to do it on your own.

Check out these scripts..

This one worked for me in the past but hasn't been updated
http://www.notonebit.com/projects/cafe/free/

This is what I'm using now
http://scripts.filehungry.com/product/php/web_fetching_scripts/cafe_press_random_product

I had to put all of the products I wanted to show in a hidden section and use that section with the script.
I am not a programmer, but the only mod I had to do was change this line and figure out the section part since it is made for basic shops.
       $cp->setStore('yourstore', 'section');

It's a little tricky, but I had to create a php page and bring that in an iframe on my site.  It's not the best way to do and is a little server intensive, but I like it!

flippinsweetgear...

thanks for pointing me in those directions.  i will take a closer look at them.

for now, i talked with a programmer friend, and he hooked me up with a solution i can live with for now.

basically, he changed a coupla things inside part of the code and then added the link inside the Product Page greeting, which says that if they'd like to see ALL the products featuring that design, to click.

it isn't exactly what i had in mind originally, but i actually think this may work better.
