Featured Content Showcase

Description

Used to create a customizable rotating slideshow highlighting certain posts or
pages. You can choose which posts or pages are featured by simply checking a
checkbox on the write posts/page screen. The plugin uses the new post thumbnail
functionality added in WordPress 2.9.

Requires PHP5.

FAQ

How do I add this to my theme?

Simply add this code where you want the showcase to display:

if (function_exists('get_featured_content_showcase')) {
    echo get_featured_content_showcase();
}
How do I make a post or page “featured”?

Once the plugin is activated, you will see a new meta box on the edit page and
edit post pages in WordPress admin titled “Featured Content Showcase”. At a
minimum you need to check the checkbox labeled “Featured” and set an image as
the “page image” or “post image”. You can also specify a Showcase Title and/or
Showcase text if you want, but that’s optional.
