Increased Flexibility for Featured Pages with Genesis
This plugin brings you a "Featured Page" widget with up to 34 options (instead of only 9)! Use it additionally to the existing original widget if you need more flexibility.
Especially useful for using own links and page teaser content on a home page or anywhere in a widget area. Fully leverages Genesis' awesomeness. Build with webmasters, non-coders and security in mind. I have developed this plugin for my clients to fullfill their needs for their home pages on their small business sites.
Control title link for featured Page, plus Widget title link!
Set custom teaser content for page - or use page excerpt, or content (limit) via Genesis :)
A great helper tool for Genesis Child Themes!
Please note: The plugin requires the Genesis Theme Framework (in version 2.0 or higher), a paid premium product released by StudioPress/ Copyblogger Media LLC (via studiopress.com).

Credit where credit is due: This plugin here is inspired and partly based on the work of the Genesis Developers for "Featured Page" widget, plus on the work of Johan van de Merwe for "Genesis Featured Page Extended" -- but can be used alongside both of them.
