Easy Featured Content

This plugin allows you to mark content as featured and use the designation in your queries and via a template tag.

How do I make a post type featurable?

By default, the plugin only allows posts and pages to be featured. However, if you have a custom post type, you can easily add featured content support by modifying the following snippet:

function register_featured_content_support() {
    // Adds featured content support to the custom post type 'my-post-type-slug'
    add_post_type_support('my-post-type-slug', 'featured-content');

    // Removes featured content support from pages
    remove_post_type_support('page', 'featured-content');
}
add_filter('after_setup_theme', 'register_featured_content_support');

Why would I want to use this plugin?

If you have content on your site that you want to feature (maybe on the home page or in a sidebar) then you can use this plugin to enable marking that content as featured. It works for any post type that provides an editing UI.

How do I use the query variable?

In your custom queries (new WP_Query, get_posts or query_posts) simply pass in the query variable is_featured as follows:

$featured_posts = new WP_Query(array('is_featured' => 'yes', 'post_type' => 'post'));

If you need to get only non featured content, you would do something like the following:

$non_featured_posts = new WP_Query(array('is_featured' => 'no', 'post_type' => 'post'));
