    Hi Yah,

    I've been trying for ages to get the featured products section of the theme to work but up to now no joy. As per the instructions I created a new category in admin, I called it Featured Products, the ID assigned is "13". I stick a few test products in the category then I went to the static blocks > Homepage & replaced the default number with my 13 saved, flushed all of the cache & nothing shows up on the homepage under featured products.

    {{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="18" template="catalog/product/featured_products.phtml"}}

    Changed to

    {{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="13" template="catalog/product/featured_products.phtml"}}

    The category that I created is active...

    Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated
