    We need more information.

    What theme are you using? Where is your site (URL)?

    I am using Spectrum but the big problem is I am not authorized to give out the URL. I understand if you cannot help me any further with the matter.

    I have had a look at the feature.php page and tested it and can see that it retrieves all of the correct variables for the panel to work but it there is a problem with the have_posts : the_posts section of the code.
    This is where it seems to switch to the recent posts.

    Are you talking about posts or products?

    If you’re talking about posts then you’re posting on the wrong forum I think :p

    If you’re talking about products, post the code and I’ll take a look.

    I’m talking about WooThemes plugin using their theme called spectrum. it has a specific function for the featured panel.

    <div id="loopedSlider">
    	<?php $woo_featured_tags = get_option('woo_featured_tags'); if ( ($woo_featured_tags != '') && (isset($woo_featured_tags)) ) { ?>
    		$featposts = get_option('woo_featured_entries'); // Number of featured entries to be shown
    		$GLOBALS['feat_tags_array'] = explode(',',get_option('woo_featured_tags')); // Tags to be shown
            foreach ($GLOBALS['feat_tags_array'] as $tags){
    			$tag = get_term_by( 'name', trim($tags), 'post_tag', 'ARRAY_A' );
    			if ( $tag['term_id'] > 0 )
    				$tag_array[] = $tag['term_id'];
    	<?php $saved = $wp_query; query_posts(array('tag__in' => $tag_array, 'posts_per_page' => $featposts)); ?>
    	<?php if (have_posts()) : $count = 0; ?>
        <div class="container">
            <div class="slides">
                <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    			<?php if (!woo_image('return=true')) continue; // Skip post if it doesn't have an image ?>
                <?php $GLOBALS['posts_per_page'][$count] = $post->ID; $count++; ?>
                <div id="slide-<?php echo $count; ?>" class="slide">
                	<?php woo_get_image('image',620,250,'feat-image'); ?>
                	<div class="slide-content">
           		     	<h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
           		     	<p><?php echo woo_excerpt( get_the_excerpt(), '150'); ?></p>
           		 	</div><!-- /.slide-content -->
           		    <div class="fix"></div>
    		<?php endwhile; ?> 
    		</div><!-- /.slides -->
    		<?php if ($count > 1) : ?>
    		<ul class="nav-buttons">
        		<li id="n"><a href="#" class="next"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/btn-slider-next.png" alt=">" /></a></li>
                <li id="p"><a href="#" class="previous"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/btn-slider-prev.png" alt="<" /></a></li>
            <?php endif; ?>
        </div><!-- /.container -->
    	<div class="fix"></div>
        <?php endif; $wp_query = $saved; ?>
        <?php if (get_option('woo_exclude') <> $GLOBALS['shownposts']) update_option("woo_exclude", $GLOBALS['shownposts']); ?>
         <?php } else { ?>
         	<p class="note"><?php _e('Please setup Featured Panel tag(s) in your options panel. You must setup tags that are used on active posts.','woothemes'); ?></p>
         <?php } ?>
    </div><!-- /#loopedSlider -->

    This is featured posts. Nothing to do with WooCommerce. Please post this on the woothemes helpdesk 🙂
