Featured posts plugin & widget for WordPress or WordPress MU.
Adds a featured post management page for site admins who can input a sitewide feed address, then select posts via a checkbox. Also includes a widget to disply posts on the main (or any) blog.
We recommend using the Sitewide tags plugin in WPMU, then placing the feed address from the tags blog in the admin menu. Otherwise, any blog feed can be used.
A widget is included. You can also code the output in your theme with
<?php ra_featured_show($how_many, $read_more, $show_avatar); ?> where
= how many posts to show - default 1
= add read more link - default show link
= show author avatar - default show avatar
Also includes a shortcode with parameters where values & defaults match what is above
[ra-featured howmany=1 readmore=1 showavatar=1]
