Featured Post (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I am trying to make a featured slider with, let's say, 5 posts that have a certain meta value (let's say, featured_value = on). On the same page, I would like to list all remaining posts in the normal fashion, but I would like to exclude the posts that are in the slider.

    How can I accomplish these things?

    Thanks a lot!

    Another question, how can I make it so if the $post->ID of a post in The Loop matches with any of the post ID's in the featured post Query, it doesn't display?

    What I am looking to do is similar. Consider:

    I created a category called "featured" -- all I would do to feature a post is add it to that category (using WP built in UI).

    I have found plugins for creating a Featured Post Slider, but they don't seem to be compatible with WP 3.0 (Twenty Ten theme).

    Also, the plugins I have found for creating a Featured Post Slider, all seem to use custom fields for the images and the text. Since WP includes a built in UI for "Featured Image" and since the text is already present in the post, I would like to have the text and image used from what is already there.

    Alas, I am not prepared to give any help on the filtering of IDs that you propose in your second post, but I will join with you in tackling this issue.

    Also consider: If you are not opposed to have a theme handle things for you, and the theme does not hinder you in other ways, the Suffusion theme takes care of all this for you. I cannot use it as I am too much in need of WP 3.0's new menu system, and as far as I know, Twenty Ten is the only theme capable of utilizing the new menu system.
