How do I set featured products in WooCommerce (26 posts)

    Hi, I'd like to have a slider of featured products on my shopping site.

    WooCommerce seems to refer to something called 'featured products' but I cant find anywhere how you set this up. So my questions are: How to I mark products as 'featured'. And once I do, how to I get them on the front page?

    I have found a 'featured products' widget that I have dragged into the sidebar, and I have also tried adding to a page:
    [featured_products per_page="12" columns="4"]

    Under my theme setting (I'm using 'Wootique') I have set 'Home page featured products' to 'Slider' and under Settings > Reading, I have FrontPage = 'Shop'

    I am a complete WordPress newbie by the way so please dont assume I should have already done something obvious.
    Thanks.

    WooCommerce: 1.6.5.2

    Finally figured out that to set a product as featured you click on the star in the product listing. Still cant get the slider to run though.

    Woo Themes may be able to offer better help with their commercial themes -- as they are not generally supported here.

    haha its just that star! saved me a lot of time too, thank you spiderplant0!

    have you set a featured image along with your product? maybe that's why its not showing up on the featured products panel.

    I also am using woo commerce and love just one wish. How do I get it not to say: "Featured Product" on the homepage I just want it to list the product that I have featured.

    Right now in very large letters it says featured product which is very distracting to the design. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated

    Try adding this to your CSS:

    .home #main h1 {
       display: none;
    }

    Wow I can't believe I didn't think of that. Thank you very much. I was working the angle that was a completely more complicated direction. Thanks for setting me straight. Great!

    Can someone please tell me where to find the "Featured Products" title on the homepage in the editor? Or in which template I would find it in? So much appreciated! Thanks!

    I found it! For anyone who was wondering or for future reference the "Featured Products" title on the homepage is located in the theme-woocommerce.php

    echo '<h1>'.__(Featured Products', 'woothemes').'</h1>';

    Plus tip: Reg thumbnails to a higher size for better slider images quality. (You will need to use the Regenerate thumbnails plugin).

    1. In your WordPress dashboard browse to products.
    2. on right side click on *(Star) to make your product feature product.

    There is no star, images are uploaded and I dont know what else you all are talking about with the code.

    How do you make the products (not necessarily featured) show up in the home page? Any ideas?
