On your home page (and catalog page), you can show product categories or a few products by themselves. These will display just under the page content. You may display new products (items entered most recently, according to the date field), featured products (if you have some selected) or sale products (items with a sale price). You may also display a list of categories in a single column, in three columns or five columns.
Go to Website / Pages / Home Page / Edit
Scroll down to where it says "Display" and choose from the dropdown menu.
Click the Update Button
Note: If you do not wish to display either products or category lists, select "No Display".
