Are there any requirements for products I’d like to display?

The product must have the Visibility setting (in Admin->Products->Catalog->edit product) set so that “Catalog” is included in the value (e.g. “Catalog” or “Catalog,Search”). Otherwise the link back to the product won’t work.

I use a currency other than dollars – how do I change the price display?

Modify product_display_for_magento.php and change the function mage_product_display_price.
