This is Max from the Shopify Team.
Are you looking to use the featured product or featured collection sections on a theme's homepage? If so, you should be able to select relevant products or collections right from the theme editor (Online Store > Themes > Customize > click Featured Collection). Here's what this looks like in my test store using Debut:
If you don't already have a collection created for your featured products you can follow these steps to create a new collection. Then if the you'd like to change the sort order for the products in a collection, you can do that as well! Just follow the steps listed here.
If you need any more support or clarification, please let us know here or reach out to support directly!
The sort by featured option is organized based on the way your collection would be shown in manual sort!
So, for example, if you sort manually and then change back to say low to high price, the sort by featured option will pull from the most recent version of your manual sort. Here's an example in case that's unclear;
Current low to high sort (how the page loads)
Same settings, using sort by featured (shows most recent manual sort)
Let us know if that helps clear things up! If things aren't showing that way in your theme, feel free to get in touch with us!
Ok, great! Glad that was able to help clear things up.
Let us know if we can help with anything else along the way.
