I know to a degree this is covered in the codec under #multiple_loops, but I am wondering if anybody can recommend the best/most efficient way to achieve the following.
I want to have the 'home' page displaying a loop which ONLY displays post types that are marked as Featured (through I imagine either a custom post type or category?).
The loop on the 'blog' section of the page will contain all blog posts, including those marked as 'featured.
I also don't want the slug for the permalinks of featured posts to be 'featured' but fall under whatever category will be appropriate for the post.
