  • I’d like the titles of my featured posts to show up inside the header image with the summary and “READ MORE” link in the bottom of the header image. Similar to the posts on DannyChoo.com.

    But I only want posts in the “FEATURED” category to look like this. All the others must stay the same. Is this possible?

  • query_posts('ports_per_page=1&category_name=FEATURED');
      if(have_posts()) :
        the_post();
        the_content('READ MORE');
      endif;
    wp_reset_query();

    Thanks so much! Where would I put this code? Would it go in the loop or as a style. Sorry, I’m really terrible at this stuff.

    Okay, so I have something sort of like this in my loop:

    <?php query_posts('ports_per_page=1&category_name=FEATURED'); if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <div class="lead-image-wrapper">
    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    <?php $image = get_post_meta($post->ID, "lead_image", true); ?>
    <img src="<?php echo $image; ?>" />
    </div>
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_content('READ MORE'); ?>
    </div>
    <p class="postmetadata"><?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', '<br />'); ?> Posted in <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php edit_post_link('Edit', ', ' | '); ?> <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?></p>
    </div>
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    Not sure if it works yet and I highly doubt it will. Anybody see anything that maybe I’m missing so I can add it before I test it out?

    Thanks.
