Featured Post Manager

Description

Let’s you select a specific category for featured posts, and manage those selections on the WordPress dashboard.

Most WordPress themes have you manage featured posts by selecting a “Featured” or “Top News” category for your special articles. This method has worked pretty well for both me and others. It’s only downfall is that you must go to edit that post in order to “feature” or “unfeature” it. Well I’m putting an end to that. With this plugin, you can select which posts get featured right on the dashboard.

To put it simply: You can manage categories from the WordPress Dashboard.
