Using featured posts

Featured posts highlight blog posts you want to bring to your visitor's attention. In some templates, featured posts display in a slideshow in a Blog Page's header. You can also display featured posts on any template using the Summary Block.

How featured posts display

Summary Block

The Summary Block has a filter option that allows you to display featured posts only. This is available in all templates.

Blog Page header

Templates in the Bedford family (Anya, Bryant, Bedford, Hayden) display a slideshow of featured posts in the Blog Page Header. By default, the post's date, title, and a View Post link display. If the blog post has a thumbnail image, it will display in the header background.

Step 1 - Go to your blog

In the Home Menu, click Pages, then select the Blog page you want to edit. 

Step 2 - Select a post

Click the + to add a new post, or select a current post and click Edit.

Step 3 - Enable the Featured Post option

Click the Options tab, and then check Featured Post at the bottom of the Blog Post Editor. Click Save.

If your template supports it and if this post is in the five most recent featured posts, it will display in the Blog Page header.

Step 4 - Display featured posts in the Summary Block (optional)

Add a Summary Block to display featured posts in a sidebar, footer, or Regular Page.

In the Summary Block Editor, click Display, and then check Featured Filter. Click Apply
