This plugin is exactly what I am looking for, but the check boxes to add a post to the featured list are not showing up in my custom post type. The column title appears in the admin screen, but no check boxes.
Regular post types display the check box as long as I have a category assigned, and the widget works perfectly for checked posts. I have the same categories assigned for the custom post types where the option to set as featured does not appear.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
