    I figured out 1 part of the problem.
    The default list view is set to 6 products which is why it is only showing 6 on the page.
    If I change the static blog to list.phtml instead of featured_products.phtml and then change the number of products to 15 or 9, then the left and right scroll works.

    So my question comes down to, how do I change the one column homepage so that at least 15 items are listed?
