Vanity now has the ability to set where the images should come from for the gallery under the slideshow.
There are three choices: Featured, Recent and Categories.
Choosing this option shows the products in the Frontpage collection. This collection is created automatically when you created your Shopify store.
Choosing this option will display the products in the "Recent" collection. You will need to create a new smart collection if you want to use this. Make the conditions of the collection Price > 0 and after it has been created make sure you set the sort order to be "By Date Created: Newest to Oldest". Now your new products will automatically appear on the home page.
This option displays the first product from the collections defined in a link list called "Categories". Clicking on one ot the items takes you to that collection page.
