Displaying FeaturedPosts on Your Site
FeaturedPosts can be added to your site using two different methods, widgets or shortcode.
Navigate to the Widgets area under Appearance in the WordPress Admin area. Drag the FeaturedPosts widget into the widget area that you would like for it to display in.
If you would like to add a FeaturedPosts group to a post or page all you have to do is copy [featuredposts] and paste it the content of the page or post you would like for it to display in.
To display FeaturedPosts in theme template files like page.php, use
<?php echo do_shortcode('[featuredposts]'); ?>
