Hi--I finally(!!!!) posted a few things--only took me 2 days! I can't figure out how to get my item's pics to show up on the Featured part of my site. Help will be appreciated. Many thanks, Gerri

Hi,
When you list or Edit a product,
there is a check box by the option Show as featured on your store home page.
(It's right below the Global Category*: Drop Down box.)

Make sure that box is checked if you want your products in the Featured Section

Unless you're talking about the Featured Categories and you designate those within the categories themselves (in admin). Click on the little pencil icon to the right of the category names and you'll see a place to set the featured category placement at the bottom of the page it takes you to.

Thanks--I did that earlier but they didn't show up. I just went in again and re-checked for each. I don't know how long it takes, but they're not up.

I was answering -buytime before.

Poopsheet, Yes, earlier I found those little boxes that looked like it put the pics in order. I checked those, too.

If you did it correctly they show up instantly.

Make sure you are using jpg or gif pic. Whatever you are donign isn't working.

Are you uploading the image from your pc?
Is it the correct size? not too big?

You select the image, and click the position you want that image to appear. This is done when you edit the category.

Well, different day, same problem, but found the solution. Duhh! Figured out that I have to -again- upload the same pics for the Featured. Silly me--thought I only had to click to use the pic already on the ad.

Thank you for your patience.
