free WordPress Theme

Someone reported that my Featured Posts plugin wasn’t working. I tracked it down to the download zip containing the old admin page vs the updated one. I updated the repository. Original plugin post

Download it from the repo: Featured Posts


  1. Still shows the wrong avatar for me on the front end and now no avatar on the backend, it shows my avatar on front end, the super admin, and not the author of the post’s.

    In Table: wp_featuredposts feature_username is correct – let’s says it’s ‘Bill’, the author of the post. I wonder if it’s because ‘Bill’ is his *display name* and first name and that his username is actually something different, like billsmith? So it can’t match ‘Bill’ up with billsmith so it defaults to me, the admin?

  2. Hello,

    I have installed the featured posts plugin. I have repeatedly tried to install the update to 2.8.2, and the installer says it deletes the old version and successfully installs the new one. However, when I go back to my plugins page, it still shows version 1.0. I’m using WP 3.0. Please let me know what I am missing.
