Featured Posts? (12 posts)

    Hi I was wondering if there was a plugin that would make a "featured posts" place on your blog? This blog http://www.willisms.com has it, but he is using Movable Type.

    Hi I don't mean to bump, but I can't seem to find a solution to this .. I really want a "Featured Posts" section

    Easy to use something like CG-SameCat (or any other filtered-posts-list plugin) which can show some list of posts that are in a particular category, and tag your 'featured posts' with a category... hmm, maybe 'featured'.. ;)

    You can then easily add and remove things from the list by just tagging/untagging posts...

    You could a similar thing using a custom post field to tag featured articles, then show a list of articles with that custom field (I'm not sure what plugin you'd use to do that way, however...).

    I put cg-samecat-plugin in my wp-content/plugins directory and get this error after activating the plugin at the top of my admin:

    Warning: main(/home/teen/public_html/wp-content/plugins/cg-plugins/cg-samecat.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/teen/public_html/wp-content/plugins/cg-samecat-plugin.php on line 18

    <b> on my blog home page at the top I get these errors:</b>

    The above error states that there is no cg-samecat.php file in /wp-content/plugins/cg-plugins/. Did you install Chait Gear as directed?

    Yes I made a folder /cg-plugins and put that file in it

    BTW: The readme only says this:

    INSTALLING SameCat

    As a plugin, just drop it into your wp-content/plugins directory and activate it.
    As a hack, put it in the wp folder (or cg-plugins) and include() it in index.php
    or my-hacks.php.

    It doesn't mention making the new folder and putting that other .php file in it .. I just did that myself after I noticed a new folder.

    You really need to read the whole file that comes with chaitgear - all the stuff has to be uploaded, not just one file, IIRC.... if you have problems, just be patient, David will be along to answer your questions.

    I read the "README_FIRST" and I don't see anything about installing all the files. All I want is the same category/featured post plug in ;/

    Thanks
