public function hookHome($params)
		return $this->hookRightColumn($params);


public function hookHome($params)
		if (!$this->isCached('blocknewproductsHome.tpl', $this->getCacheId()))
			if (!Configuration::get('PS_BLOCK_NEWPRODUCTS_DISPLAY'))
			$newProducts = Product::getNewProducts((int) $params['cookie']->id_lang, 0, (int) Configuration::get('NEW_PRODUCTS_NBR'));
			if (!$newProducts)
				'new_products' => $newProducts,
				'mediumSize' => Image::getSize(ImageType::getFormatedName('medium')),
		return $this->display(__FILE__, 'blocknewproductsHome.tpl', $this->getCacheId());

IMO there are a few things to check looking @ what u wanna do and the way you do it.

Usage of ajax_add_to_cart_button class and rel to spécify the id both look fine.

- Are you sure ajax-cart.js is loaded in your home page though ?

- Supposing it's loaded, did you set the debug parameter to true in /config/defines.inc.php ? (in case you did, any notice or warning on any of loaded module will break ajax response) 


I really wonder why you put some inline style ine your tpl.

There is a css file loaded in header wich at least uses CCC. Inline styles aren't really good for "google pagespeed" like tests .

You'd be inspired to put those css in blocknewproducts.css reather than in tpl.


You'd be inspired too to have a look @ modules's tpl and css overrides cause it would have been far enough to override the module tpl and css rather than modify them inside module's directory.
