Featured products are shown on the “home page” (pc/home.asp) and on the “featured product” (pc/showfeatured.asp) page in your storefront.
You can make a product a “featured” product by using this page, when adding or modifying a product, or when changing the properties of multiple products at once using the Global Changes feature. You can also set this property when you are importing products.
- Which products are shown
Which products are shown on the home page is determined by the settings configured through the Manage Home Page feature. For example, if you have six products in your store database that have been set to be featured products, and the home page has been configured to show four of them (e.g. see home page screen shot on previous page), then the other two will be shown on the Featured Products page.
- Order in which they are shown
Products are shown in the order specified in the Control Panel under Pages > Manage Special Pages > Featured Products.
- Other display settings
Featured products are displayed according to the display settings that have been chosen on Manage Home Page.
- Showing\Hiding Not for Sale items
There is a variable hard coded in the page (/pc/showFeatured.asp) that allows you to control whether Not For Sale items should be displayed in the Featured Products section. Comments in the code indicate how to edit the variable value. The code is as follows (by default, Not for Sale items are shown):
' Or you can override the value manually by uncommenting one of the lines below ' pcIntFeaturedNFS = 0 ' Not for sale items are shown ' pcIntFeaturedNFS = -1 ' Not for sale items are not shown
' Or you can override the value manually by uncommenting one of the lines below ' pcIntFeaturedNFS = 0 ' Not for sale items are shown pcIntFeaturedNFS = -1 ' Not for sale items are not shown
