    I designated a post as a Featured Post, but I'm not seeing anything on the post that shows it's "Featured".

    What am I doing wrong?

    My blog is http://www.thechinesequest.com (at this moment, the featured post is http://www.thechinesequest.com/?p=235

    Right now, the plugin does not do anything to posts that are designated as featured except apply CSS classes.

    Looking at your site, you are featuring posts. Featured posts of this type will receive .featured and .featured-post classes. You can use these to style the featured posts differently.

    In the next version release, I think I will provide a few styling options that can be turned on. Do you have anything in mind?

    Hi Jonathan
    You mean that the new CSS classes (.featured and .featured-post) added only at the admin list posts ????

    If you want some ideas for further development ... So:
    1. That we can manage the CSS classes of the .featured and .featured-post
    2. That we can manage the number of messages that displays, or display all featured by category
    3. Featured will be possible per category
    4. Selection of the Order of the featured, by date, by alphabetical or random

    If I have more ideas I'd love to share them with you

    Hey @dacho,

    1. The CSS you'd probably want to manage within your theme itself. We provide the classes so you can style those posts however you'd like. If we did provide default css it would be pretty basic (and most people may not be happy with it). Maybe we can put in a few more examples in the FAQs that will help. @desrosj or maybe do some default styling and allow people to filter it out.
    2. You can manage this based on your custom query shown in the example(s)
    3. You can manage this based on your custom query shown in the example(s)
    4. You can manage this based on your custom query shown in the example(s)

    For 2 - 4 do you mean a way to manage that within the admin panel? We typically use this plugin within our custom loops through wp_query get_posts etc... But if you're looking for an actual way to administrate it we'll probably have to brainstorm the best way to approach it.
