I've been given a design for a WordPress site which will be mostly made up of pages rather than posts. However, at the top of each page there needs to be three featured items in a row. Each featured item will have an image, title, a small bit of summary text, and a link to another page.
Can anyone tell me the best way of implementing these featured items for a page? Would they need to be a custom content type? And if so how would I implement it in the template? They need to be fairly easy for administrators to edit, and change, and link to other pages.
I am an experienced Drupal designer, but am new to WordPress.
Any help would be much appreciated.
