First, let me say that I think Expound is a BEAUTIFUL theme. What really grabbed my attention is the way the first 5 featured posts are shown, with the large image and four thumbnails.
However, I'm wondering if it's possible to gain a little more control over what is shown and how it behaves? Basically what I'd like to be able to do is pin a post so that it always appears as the first featured story but other featured stories appearing in the grid. Then, if there is no featured post, everything acts as normal.
I saw in another post here that you can override the
expound_get_featured_posts function in a child theme but I've no idea where to start with this. Any suggestions/ help would be wonderful. If what I'm looking to do is not possible, that's OK, but we don't know till we ask.
