You can access these options from a promoted item's context menu while on the front page or from a predefined list of content (view). Open the context menu by hovering over the content items in the list; you'll see the dotted outline and the gear in the right corner of the listing.
Use these context menus on the front page and subscribed lists to highlight or unhighlight items promoted to your front page. Access these items' context menus by hovering over them in a list and click the cog/gear icon. By default, highlight and unhighlight works in two ways:
to provide the visual outline of red or gold, depending on your League's site colors
to automatically reorder the promoted items on your front page by physically moving the item up or down the list**
You can also use these context menus to promote or demote subscribed content to and from your front page. Access the context menus from your homepage, or visit your subscribed lists for Articles or Action Alerts, and promote other League's content items to grow your front page list.

With Manage Front Page Items, you can:
Manually reorder the items with grabby handles
Click and drag the grabby handle to the left of each promoted item to rearrange the order. Then save the custom order.
Not seeing the grabby handles? Refer to our FAQs (Show/Hide row weights - what does it mean?).
Limit/Increase the number of visible items listed on the front page
Under the list of promoted items, you'll find this dropdown to set the number of visible items that will appear on the front page. Change the value then save the custom order. For example, if LWV Demo Site's number of visible items is set to 5, but there are 10 items total currently promoted to the front page, up to 5 only will show.
If you see a promoted item on your front page that was submitted by General Public, you can easily remove these without affecting any custom order you might have saved.
Use the Remove orphan items button:
As soon as you save a customized order for your front page items, Highlight/Unhighlight this item on the front page will no longer automatically reorder the promoted items on your front page. The system will continue to obey your previously customized order. You can change this by:
- saving another customized order (you can make as many changes to the rearrangement and/or number of visible items then save the order again), OR
- resetting to default so that all promoted items are visible and all the highlighted items rise to the top.
