Good extension. I messed up the installation, but AheadWorks provided excellent support identifying th installation issues and getting me back on track. Thanks. July 11, 2011
This product works only with simple products and not with config or bundled products And use the default image in stead of a choosen one (as in he old version) My opinion , looks great but the flexibilty is really bad if you compare it to featured product version 2.0 February 28, 2011

Unfortunately there is no PDF user guide available for the extension in our store at the moment. However basic instructions on how to configure Feature Products 3 are provided in the readme file of the extension (link to the file can be found on the product page of the extension on our store or in its installation package). Also if you meet any difficulties in the extension configuration feel free to contact our Help Desk team, we will be glad to help you. The Help Desk contact form can be found on out web-store.

Yes, you can configure the sequence of products to be shown in the Featured Products block. The module provides you with an ability to select items for the block manually and define how the chosen products will be sorted: newest/oldest first or randomly. Thank you.
