    Default change how latest products works or add new box that displays products we select

    Hi, the client would like a box like 'lastest products' or to customise 'latest products' so that it only shows items we wish to promote. I know at the moment this box will display products that have been recently added. How can I insert certain products to always be shown? Or make a completely new box, I'm struggling to think where I will tell zen to draw the products from unless this box can work like the 'special offers' box where I insert products in the catalog>specials and then it displays these.

    Some help would be much appreciated

    sorry, here's a link to my home page so you can see what I mean;

    http://www.thegreatgiftshop.co.uk

    I'm not sure if I am using featured products! If i am, ive renamed it to 'latest products'

    But i think that might be a different box? I have renamed some of the default zen boxes that appear in the centre column. Hopefully from looking at my site you can see what I've done and can help me insert another box inplace of 'latest products' or customise 'latest products' so it does what we'd like it to. (which is choose certian products to be displayed only)

    Thanks

    I do need to know one more thing though, how can I change the background colour of 'featured products' and 'special offers'?

    Many thanks
