Featured Posts Widget? Yes, I already searched... (2 posts)

    Can someone direct me to a FUNCTIONAL featured posts widget?

    I've spent about two hours searching and trying every one I could find.

    Alex King's Articles plugin works in a template, not in a widget (I'm using Samsarin PHP widget).

    Those Were the Days kinda sorta works, but it won't return the first sentence like it's supposed to.

    Featured Posts won't work in a template either.

    The various solutions that require using a category aren't acceptable -- I'm not willing to add a category for this -- it's not a freakin' category.

    I'm using the Thematic theme framework -- definitely want to make it a widget. Unfortunately I don't have the coding skills to build it myself or fix any of the above.

    How would you designate a post as being 'featured'?

    Could you just use the sticky post feature?
