Featured Products 3 is the next generation of the Featured Products extension. Thus the previous versions (Featured Products 1.x and 2.x) won’t be further developed to support the newest Magento versions.
Most online stores have a section named ‘featured products’. Your challenge is to make this section truly stand out and get the desired impact. Towards that end, Featured Products is a must-have Magento module for your store. You can statically or animatedly showcase products of your choice to lure them to explore the features and benefits of your product. As with all of our Magento extensions, you will have considerable flexibility to customize it to any store using our typically clean and intuitive user interface.

How it works
The Featured Products extension for Magento adds:
- 3 product attributes — 'aw_fp_enabled', 'aw_fp_category' and 'aw_fp_description'
- A control panel under "system configuration" that lets you configure the view of your extension
- A tab under product configuration options that lets you define the featured products and enter alternate text for the slideshow
- A template, which should be inserted into the store’s CMS on one or more pages where you wish to see your featured products
The template would start rolling after it has been added to a live page and at least one product has been marked as “featured”.
Great way to showcase products
Another great extension
This is wonderful!
I like this extension better than a flash animation because:
1. It is very easy to customize from the admin section,
2. You can add / edit / remove products easily,
3. The extension takes the pictures and current price directly from your database, so the prices are always current.
It was easy to install. Just play with the admin settings and the CSS file to put the picture, title, and price where you want it. For the bottom, you can choose page numbers or thumbnails. You can choose the time between stills.
Overall, it is great, I am very happy to have this on my site!
