The featured products panel displays products that you have marked as Featured. It's a great way to bring your customers' attention to products that are on sale, in season, back in stock, or just worthy of extra attention. The featured products offers more flexibility than other product panels by allowing you to select which products to display. You can also choose how many featured products you want to display at a time; it will shuffle which products are actually displayed.

A sample Featured Products panel

Selecting Featured Products 1. Go to Products › View Products. At the top of the list of products, there is a Featured column left of the Action column with white stars under it.

2. To feature a product, click the star to its right. When the star is filled in, it has been marked as Featured.

Click it again to take off the Featured status.

Changing how many featured products display 1. Go to Setup & Tools › Customize your store › Store Settings, then click on the Display tab.

The display tab in the Store Settings area

2. Change the number next to Featured Products. If this number is lower than the number of products you have featured, the products displayed will change whenever the page is refreshed.

3. Save your changes.

Referencing the panel in HTML The featured products panel is called HomeFeaturedProducts.html. It can be found in the Panelsfolder of the template files. To reference the panel in an HTML document, insert%%Panel_HomeFeaturedProducts%%. This panel was designed to appear on the home page of a store; you will have to customize it for any other usage.

How do you set up the Featured Products so it isn't shuffled? Want the display order to be fixed.

Hi Stephanie4535,

Sorry but it's designed to shuffle the products. There's not a way to control the order.
