Under the Navigation Sets Tab

Featured Products

There are three parts to updating this navigation section:

  1. Create new images to replace sample ones
  2. Update menu and assign categories or products to these images
  3. Update the Featured Products Text Boxes

You can create a separate image for each category you want to represent in this section. For this example, we have four individual images created and uploaded to display separate categories in our store: Silk Ties, Pattern Ties, Wool Ties and On Sale Ties. Note: These images should be created with a transparent background. You could also use product images, but they would need to be uploaded separately and at the customized size mentioned above, 200 x 267 for best results.)

  2. Navigate to the category you want the image to represent (Click on “Menu,” scroll down to “Catalog,” then “Categories,”now search for the category you’re working on), open it, scroll down to the “Category Tree” image tab, upload your image, click the “Update” button.
