Fetaured Pages

Post by migf1 » 11 Nov 2009, 03:11

Hello, first things first: THANK YOU for this excellent theme!

I'm sorry If this has been asked before (I did a quick scan and didn't find anything), but would it be possible to include pages in the Featured area? I think the theme allows only posts to be used in the Featured area, right?

Thanks in advance.

No, you can only include posts.

Thanks for the fast reply!

Is this something you would consider adding to a future release of the theme?

I think it would give a very interesting perspective to the theme, broadening up the horizons toward more sophisticated web designs.

Thanks.

Yes, I can definitely consider adding this. It is not very difficult and there is a lot of value in it.

I was giving some more thought about the featured area. Do you think it would be easy to make it show more than one pictures from a single post (or page)?

For example, if a post (or page) contains more than one pictures, then the theme could show them all in the Featured Area instead of just the 1st one.

Very useful for showing items of the same collection. Say for example the blog is about watches. We could have a post (or page) with 5 pics of Tag Hauer watches, another one with 6 pics of Rolex watches, etc.

SAy one week we want to feature Tag Heuer watches in the Fetured Area. We feature just one post (page), the one with the Tag Heuer pics and all 5 pics are shown. Next week we can do the same for the Rolexes, etc

How does this sound? Would it be easy to get implemented?

It is tough to implement, but that is only my feeling. There are several considerations here, like image size, how you want to lay out all the images etc. My suggestion would be to hunt for a plugin that does this for you.

I'll do that, thanks!

For the layout and the sizes of the pics, I meant them to have the same functionality they have right now. Just a slideshow of each pic, with their associated links pointing to the same post (page)... the one containing the pics :)
