The release of the Responsive theme (v.5.2) has a “Featured Promotions” section! This highly configurable area can feature up to eight images, each of which can link to any content in your shop, such as a product, blog, contact page, or collection. Follow these steps to set them up:
Go to Online Store > Themes > Customize > Homepage. Here you can set where the Featured Promotions section lands on your homepage.
In your Customize > Home page - Featured Promotions, you upload content for this section and specify display settings.
CONFIGURING THE STYLE SETTINGS
In your Customize > Home page - Featured promotions tab:
a - Specify the number of promotions to display
Use the “Promotions per row” dropdown to specify 2, 3 or 4 promo images per row
b - Specify the layout style
From the “Promotions grid” dropdown, choose “Full-width” if you want the images to touch each other and reach edge-to-edge on your homepage, or choose “Standard” to keep a bit of a margin between and around the images.
SPECIFY THE CONTENT: Image and any title/description + link for each promo
In your Customize theme > Home page - Featured promotions tab:
- Check off the “Enable promotion” box for any promo you want to display
- Upload an image for the featured promo*
- Specify where the promo will link to when clicked (optional)
- Write the title for the promo, which will appear under the image (optional)

The Featured Promotions section is a great way to catch your visitors’ attention, and direct it towards specific content in your shop that you’d like them to see or explore further. Since they can be configured to achieve a variety of looks, try to experiment with all the options and find one that suits your needs best!
