 +=====Turning on Featured Status===== 
 + 
 +For featured status to be available you must first turn that feature on within the site here: 
 + 
 +  LISTING SETUP > LISTING EXTRAS 
 +   
 +Then to make it available to specific users you would do that through the price plan they are attached.  You would go into the **cost specifics** admin tool page to control for the whole price plan.  Then if that price plan is fee-based you can then further customize access and pricing on a category by category basis.  Look to these admin tools in the price plan admin tool: 
 + 
 +  PRICING > PRICE PLANS HOME > (EDIT A PRICE PLAN) > COST SPECIFICS 
 +  PRICING > PRICE PLANS HOME > (EDIT A PRICE PLAN) > CATEGORY SPECIFIC COSTS > (EDIT A CATEGORY) (If you are within a fee-based price plan) 
 + 
 +=====Featured Level Explanation===== 
 + 
 +There are multiple featured levels you can charge for.  Each level would correspond to a specific place within your site where featured listings would display...or you can set up to where featured status allows display within any featured display on the site.

 +==== Featured Listings (Level 1) ====
  
 This feature allows you to charge sellers on your site extra for giving them extra exposure on the site.  Depending on your placement of the featured module within your design you give additional exposure to pay for this feature to be attached to their specific listing. This feature allows you to charge sellers on your site extra for giving them extra exposure on the site.  Depending on your placement of the featured module within your design you give additional exposure to pay for this feature to be attached to their specific listing.

 Also note that if you used a featured pic module that only featured listings(classifieds & auctions) that have images attached to them will appear in the featured pic module.  All other featured listing modules (non pic-only) display all featured status listings(classifieds & auctions) equally whether images are attached or not.  Featured pic modules display a thumbnail image that links to that listing's listing details page on the site.  You can also choose to display the title of that listing below the thumbnail of that listing but the title will not be linkable like the thumbnail is.   Also note that if you used a featured pic module that only featured listings(classifieds & auctions) that have images attached to them will appear in the featured pic module.  All other featured listing modules (non pic-only) display all featured status listings(classifieds & auctions) equally whether images are attached or not.  Featured pic modules display a thumbnail image that links to that listing's listing details page on the site.  You can also choose to display the title of that listing below the thumbnail of that listing but the title will not be linkable like the thumbnail is.  
  
-===== Featured Listings Levels 2 - 5 =====+==== Featured Listings Levels 2 - 5 ====
  
 There are several Featured Listings Levels. As the administrator, you have the ability to set up various levels of Featured Listing status and charge for each individually. How might this work? Well, the various levels of featured listings(classifieds & auctions) are tied to their own separate modules under PAGE MODULES > FEATURED. You can place the module tag for each Featured Listing Level in a different location within the html of your site’s templates. Based upon the expected visitor exposure for each Level, you can assess a different charge when a seller selects to have their listing placed in that Level. If going this route, you will want to set up an **Extra Page** on your site that explains the differences between each featured level. There are several Featured Listings Levels.
