Pick specific posts to promote and recommend to your audience.
Of course! Just include
<?php echo do_shortcode( '[AuthorRecommendedPosts post_id="XXX"]' ); ?> where XXX is the ID of the post, or you can leave it out if you include it in the loop. i.e.
<?php echo do_shortcode( '[AuthorRecommendedPosts]' ); ?>
We left the styles pretty generic so it is simple enough to update to fit your theme style. Of course some CSS writing will be required.
At this time no, we want to add this in though. So keep your eyes peeled.
We did not really find any plugins out there that does just this. And we wanted something quick, simple, and easy to use.
