Ive got a test install running and have created my first 2 products. Pretty easy so far..

How can I place these products on the home page?

Thanks, I did take a look.. and editing the page area is no problem. Im very familiar with dw / xhtml / css.. adding tables, bringing structure in from an external editor wont be an issue. I watched a screen cast on it… so I see thats the intended usage for those areas.

What I am wondering about, is if there is any setting that would simply dump a product list on the front page. Even an add to cart button. That would essentially cover my needs for a lot of intended purposes. Our initial storefront is quite modest.. currently 2 planned products.

I haven’t seen this setting.. I did see how on the category pages, you can select in the combo boxes whether to include the products below the content area or not. In a similar fashion, I would like to ‘promote products to front page’ and have them display below the front page area you mention in your post.
