features array   (See main_features (array) & features (array))
main_features array   (See main_features (array) & features (array))

The main_features & features references allows you to display featured products. This reference is a recursive array containing the following references within each sub array contained within.

In terms of their function, "main_features" fetches user set featured products and "features" shows randomly selected products.  Its sometimes useful to access the main_features array first and use features as a fallback incase not enough or any main_features are set.

The products reference uses a snippet to display each product.
