Intro and Featured Posts
Intro posts and featured posts both appear before regular posts on skins that support this feature (typically b2evolution 3.0+). This feature requires that your skin implements get_featured_Item().
They differ in the following way:
- Featured posts are regular posts but they can be displayed in special places:
- Featured posts can also be featured on the home page, sidebar, etc. by using a widget like Featured Posts Widget, Simple Post List Widget, Featured/Intro Post Widget, etc.
- One of the featured posts can also be displayed on top of the normal blog display (enable this is in Post List Panel). In that case, that post will not be repeated in the normal flow of posts underneath. However, other/older posts with the "featured" box checked will still be displayed in the regular flow of posts.
- Intro posts are posts will a special type like "Intro-Main" or "Intro-Cat". Only one intro post will be displayed on a given view of the blog, depending on what is requested. For example, the "Intro-Main" post will appear on top of the main page of the blog. An "Intro-Cat" post will appear on top of the category pages it has been assigned to. However, no other intro post will ever be displayed in the regular flow of posts. See Post Contents Fieldset for details about choosing an Intro post type.
A featured post can only appear if no Intro post is available for the current page.
