How to Set Up Your Featured Content Section

| June 1, 2010 | 0 Comments

If you look at the home page of this site, you’ll see the featured content slider at the top. It’s very simple to add the featured content glider to your site. Follow these simple steps, and you’ll have it done in no time.

1. Activate Featured Content on the Theme Settings Page

On the Theme Settings page, click the link for “Featured Posts.” You’ll see a setting titled “Featured Posts on Home Page.” By default, this setting is set as “No.” If you’d like to place a Featured Content slider on the home page, simply select the narrow featured slider.

The default setting will display up to 5 featured articles, but oyu can adjust that number if you like.

2. Select Some Posts to be Displayed in the Featured Content Section

If you want a post to appear in the featured content section, simply tag the post as “featured” (without the quotes). To add a tag, simply find the “Post Tags” metabox on the right side of the Add Post screen and enter it there. If you don’t see the Post Tags metabox, click the “Screen Options” tab in the upper right corner, and activate it.

Please Note: The slug for the “featured” tag must be featured for the slider to show posts. Make sure that it’s not “featured-2.”

3. Adding Featured Article Images

For guidance on adding Feature Images, please see this tutorial.
