- To to Website / Pages / Home Page / Edit
- Where it says "Show Products", select Featured Products
- Click the Update button
Now, in order to tell products whether or not to be featured, go to Advanced / Featured and select products from the dropdown menu that you want to feature and click the Set button. You can also use the Unset button the same way. Another way to tell a product to be featured is on the product page, where it says "Featured", set that to Yes.
Displaying More Featured Products On Home Page
On the home page, the featured item list that is selected in the 'Show Products' field only shows one page of items. The number of items shown is based on the 'Layout Style' and 'Item Rows' selected in the 'Catalog Setup' area of the site. For instance, if the 'Layout Style' is set to 3 columns, and the 'Item Rows' is set to 5, it will show 15 items here in the three column format. This behavior is different than clicking the 'Featured Items' link, which shows all featured items and not just the first page. The reasoning behind this is that the page is a single page and not a dynamic selection, so it shows just a static amount of items without page numbers.
