Stop clone "featured" extension - now this task have elegant alternative!

2. Go to Admin area and open Extensions -> Modules;
3. Install "List of anyproducts - anywhere";

When Category or Manufacturer (Brands) layout is selected additional condition may be supplied. For example when Category layout is chosen, you can specify one or more categories which will conditions for displaying. Only when these categories are visualized from user AnyList will be shown.
When start datetime and/or end datetime are defined module must be enabled. It will hide automatic when time is out of range.
