Feature A Page Widget

Shows an attractive summary of any page in any sidebar.

IMPORTANT: Feature a Page Widget 2.0 requires includes a new template override system. Sites using an old template should still work in most cases but can't take advantage of new options. Full Version 2.0 Documentation

Feature A Page Widget aims to provide a "just works" solution for showcasing a Page in any sidebar. It leverages Core WordPress features, a simple set of options with a thought-through UI including three widget layouts.

How to Use the Widget

This plugin enables Featured Images (aka "Post Thumbnails") and Excerpts for Pages and Posts (by default, with the ability to support custom post types) in WordPress. If you don't see one or both of those fields, they may be hidden in the "Screen Options" (look in top-right corner) while editing a Page or Post.

  1. Edit the page you want to feature.
  2. Fill out the Excerpt and select a Featured Image on that page.
  3. Go to Appearance > Widgets.
  4. Add an instance of the "Feature a Page Widget" to the sidebar of your choosing.
  5. Select the Page, choose a layout, and give the widget a title if you want.
  6. Save the widget. Admire your handiwork.

A Word About Image Sizes

This plugin creates multiple custom image sizes. If you use images that were uploaded to the media library before you installed this plugin, you'd be wise to use a plugin like Regenerate Thumbnails or Dynamic Image Resizer.

Modifying the Widget

Feature a Page Widget 2.0 includes even more useful ways to modify the plugins output:

  1. Prewritten CSS selectors to help you get started.
  2. Three default overrideable templates and ability to create custom templates.
  3. Eight filters (three old, five new) to modify most parts of the widget output.
