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.

Installation

  1. Verify that you have PHP5, which is required for this plugin.
  2. Upload the whole featured-content-showcase directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

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.
