Easy to choose

Easy to choose feature post, just click then appear but no option for feature image.

Beautiful and simple

This plugin is the first I’ve seen that is this beautifully shown on the front-end. It seamlessly replaces the header image with the featured posts. Clean and simple back-end. I would like it if we had the option of a boxed slider, but there are other plugins that do that. This one is amazing!
