Featured Post with thumbnail

Description

This plugin let’s you add – to any spot on your blog’s sidebar – a section dedicated to the articles you’d like to highlight. How it works is very simple: once it’s installed and activated you can decide which articles to add to the highlights section, how many to display, the display order mode and the size of the image retrieved (it takes the first image in the article and automatically resizes it using the “timthumb.php” script).

If you want to see it in action: check any page beside the front page on nagmusik. It works great, but the size of text i had to change in the editor.
