Advanced Featured Post Widget

With the Advanced Featured Post Widget you can put a certain post (or post type) in the focus and style it differently.

The Widget doesn't show on my site

Look at the source code of your site. If it says at one point,

'Advanced Featured Post Widget is not setup for this view.'

you can change the visibility of the widget in the widget's settings according to your choices.

Version 2.4 and 2.5 of the plugin destroy the widget page in the admin area

I'm terribly sorry that this seems to happen with a couple of updates. The Advanced Featured Post Widget seems to really block the widgets.php from further loading. There was a big mixup while updating the plugin. With version 2.6 this should not happen anymore.

I styled the widget container myself and i looks bad. What do I do?

The styling of the widget requires some knowledge of css. If you are not familiar with that, try adding

padding: 10px;
margin-bottom: 10px;

to the style section.

My widget should have rounded corners, how do I do that?

Add something like

-webkit-border-top-left-radius: 5px;
-webkit-border-top-right-radius: 5px;
-moz-border-radius-topleft: 5px;
-moz-border-radius-topright: 5px;
border-top-left-radius: 5px;
border-top-right-radius: 5px;

to the widget style. This is not supported by all browsers yet, but should work in almost all of them.

My widget should have a shadow, how do I do that?

Add something like

-moz-box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;
-webkit-box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;
box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;

to the widget style to get a nice shadow down right of the container. This is not supported by all browsers yet, but should work in almost all of them.

I styled the links of the widget differently, but the changes don't show, what now?

Most of the time you will have to use the styles like that:

'font-weight: bold !important; color: #0000dd !important;'

Since the stylesheet of the theme will have a higher priority, you will have to make your styles more important in the hierarchy.
