The featured product module allows you to add the ability to showcase the products you've marked as featured on any page of your site. This could be your home page, or anywhere else. Combining this with one or more modules on a page could work together to employ a strategy that helps drive more sales.
The following prerequisites will be necessary to accomplish the goals of this article:
- Have access to your Hotcakes store administration
- Configure your store using the getting started wizard or do it manually
The information provided here is based upon the default configuration of Hotcakes and the default viewset. Your views may have more or less functionality, depending on how it was implemented by your technical team.
Featured Products Module
The featured products module is not placed for you anywhere on your site. If you wish to use it, you should add it to one or more pages, as desired. When you add this module to a page, it will begin working immediately without any configuration required.
Making a product "featured" is a simple checkbox setting when you're editing products. This view will look for and return the first 100 featured products it finds.
This module has settings that are unique to how it works on your site for you and your customer. If you're not already familiar with how module settings work, you should see the module settings documentation to learn more.
