Limit the home page products list

Limit the home page products list

Hi All,


Now I develop the my first Magento theme. So now I add the "New Arrivals" for product listing in the home page. Now category display the all products in the home page. Now I need to limit this products grid for 8. No need to to display this category all products in home page. Now I use the "Magento" version


This is my home page and I need a "New Arrivals" product limit to 8 products. 



This this the home page HTML layout for "New Arrival" product category and product display options. 



We create the "list-home.phtml" for display this product category in the home page. This is the code for "list-home.phtml" file. 


$_helper = $this->helper('catalog/output');
<?php if(!$_productCollection->count()): ?>
    <p class="note-msg"><?php echo $this->__('There are no products matching the selection.') ?></p>
<?php else: ?>
<div class="category-products">
  <?php $_collectionSize = $_productCollection->count() ?>
  <?php $_columnCount = $this->getColumnCount(); ?><ul class="products-grid row">
  <?php $i=0; foreach ($_productCollection as $_product): ?>
  <?php /* if ($i++%$_columnCount==0): ?>
  <ul class="products-grid row">
    <?php endif */ ?>
    <li class="item<?php if(($i-1)%$_columnCount==0): ?> first<?php elseif($i%$_columnCount==0): ?> last<?php endif; ?>  col-sm-3 col-xs-12"> 
    <div class="item-container img-thumbnail">
        <div class="item-flipper">
            <div class="item-front">
                <!-- front content -->
                <a href="<?php echo $_product->getProductUrl() ?>" title="<?php echo $this->stripTags($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image'), null, true) ?>" class="product-image"><img src="<?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($_product, 'small_image')->resize(250,310); ?>" alt="<?php echo $this->stripTags($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image'), null, true) ?>" class="img-responsive" /></a>
    <h3 class="panel-title product-name text-center">
        <a href="<?php echo $_product->getProductUrl() ?>" title="<?php echo $this->stripTags($_product->getName(), null, true) ?>"><?php echo $_helper->productAttribute($_product, $_product->getName(), 'name') ?></a>
        <div class="wrapper-priceBox">
            <div class="region-addToCart">
                <?php if($_product->isSaleable()): ?>
                <button type="button" title="<?php echo $this->__('Add to Cart') ?>" class="btn btn-warning btn-cart" onclick="setLocation('<?php echo $this->getAddToCartUrl($_product) ?>')"><?php echo $this->__('<i class="fa fa-shopping-cart"></i>') ?></button>

    <?php if ($i==6) break; ?>
    <?php /*  if ($i%$_columnCount==0 || $i==$_collectionSize): ?>
  <?php endif */ ?>
  <?php endforeach ?></ul>
<?php endif; ?>
