Note: Featured links is no longer a section in newer versions of our themes ( Responsive 6.0 and on, Mobilia 5.0 and on, Retina 4.0 and on, Parallax 3.0 and on, Turbo 2.0 and on). However, the same functionality is achievable using new Sections, such as 'Image with text' and 'Featured promotions'. View examples by checking out the live demo versions of our latest themes here.
You can display featured collections on the home page under the slideshow. The first thing you'll need to do is create a menu of your collections from the Navigation section of the Shopify admin. Go to the Navigation page and click on the Add menu button:
The menu can have any name, this will not be displayed:
Then add links that point to a Collection. The titles of the links will be used for the collection names.
When you are finished, go to Themes > Theme Settings > Home Page section to select your "Featured links". You can also select how many collections to display per row.
The image used for each collection will either be the first product in that collection, or you can upload an image when editing each collection.
As of Responsive 3.1, Mobilia 1.2, and Retina 1.0, this section also supports linking to Pages, Products, and Blogs. The first image within a linked Page will be used on the home page. The first image in the latest blog article will be used on the home page for a linked Blog. The featured image of a linked Product will be used on the home page.
