Featured articles gives the wordpress blog admin the possibility to display posts in a slick n cool way on the home page, just above the first post from the loop.

Here’s the complete list of those options:

  • Set title for the section. The title will appear above the slides
  • Display title ( maybe you change you mind, who knows )
  • Truncate descriptions with thumbnail to a number of characters
  • Truncate descriptions without thumbnail to a different number of characters; this setting will apply if you choose not to display thumbnails at all
  • Number of articles to be displayed
  • Display order ( newest, oldest or random )
  • And finally, thumbnail display
