How do I specify which of the daily devotion shows on my homepage? I only want to show "Thoughts for the Quiet Hour" and any other devotion i may buy.

Thank you

The top five prioritized calendar devotionals show on the home page.  See https://wiki.logos.com/Prioritizing

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

it seems a bit different to prioritize in Logos 6

The principles are the same - did you manage to get it working as you wanted?

Category Library Filter
Lectionary type:Lectionary
Devotional type:Calendar

I don't see the devotional type in my library search box...I did as much prioritizing as i could based on the wIKi but i still have all 4 default daily devotion on my homepage....

I don't see the devotional type in my library search box

The "type" is "Calendar Devotional" as shown below and filtering by either "type:Calendar" or "type:Devotional" give the same results

You will always get a number of devotionals if "Daily Devotional" is enabled - and you can't control how many appear

(Like you I see 4 but had thought it was 5 as per MJ's post above)

I'm not clear from what you say above whether you were  able to prioritise any devotionals. Please clarify - ideally with a screenshot of your priotization list and specifying which devotionals appear on your home page.

Neither of those resources are "calendar devotionals" - they are classed as monographs - and are not keyed by date.

Hence they won't be treated as devotionals and so don't appear as you would like.

You could set up a Reading Plan to read a portion of each every day - if you want guidance on that please advise

I agree with Robert Carter - it would nice to *only* have the devotional(s) that you want appear on your home page - instead of the top 5 or 6 based on library prioritization.  Can Logos please change this in future updates?  This would be really nice. Thanks.
