I have no clue what this feature is called, but I'd like to implement it on my site. I don't know what the proper name is, but have you ever seen a blog where their featured posts are like 4-5 thumbnails across the top of the site with the title underneath?
Check out Joystiq.com, toplessrobot.com, gearfuse.com, or nerdcore.de/wp to see what I mean.
I like how it's more compact than the Featured Gallery plugin and you can see all the featured posts in a row.
What is this even called and how can I make it happen on my site?
