Featured products section will be available if you have Featured Products free osCommerce contribution installed. This contribution can be found here. Otherwise your osCommerce Featured Products Page icon will be "greyed out", it means that the page is not available. Also this page is not available if you're using Embedded database.
On Featured products page you can configure appearance of a product in the list of featured items. Adding a product to this list doesn't automatically feature product in the store. It gives you an opportunity to edit product's Featured status. General layout of this page is as follows:
Using featured toolbar and context menu you can perform the following basic operations with osCommerce Featured products:
1. Add featured products. When you click on add featured icon , standard search product form appears. If you type a few letters of product's name or model in "Text to Search" field, the manager will show you a list of products that match your request. If you doubleclick on any product in the search results, it'll be added to a osCommerce featured products list. For more search options check Search Product section. Please note that products cannot be opened here for editing. If you wish to edit any specific product, go to Catalog -> Categories & Products section.
2. Refresh data button forces featured products' list update. It is useful when you're changing connection or have any doubts e.g. whether the latest data were displayed.
3. By clicking on delete button you'll remove selected product only from the featured list, not from the database
4. To adjust columns width use autosize icon.
