Hi,

I mean the option to select and feature certain articles of an category so it's displayed at the top of other articles as Featured Articles.

Example, if I want to feature article 3 and article 6 for the Cars category:

Cars Category

Featured Articles.
- featured article 3
- featured article 6

Normal Articles
- article 1
- article 2
- article 4
- article 5
- article 7

Hello, I'm new on sNews, sorry for bringing up this old thread, but I'm looking for this feature too. I've been trying to find here on this forum and on Tips & Trick guide and didn't find one.
So, is this feature available? or at least how can I get a certain article to be placed on a page? thanks.

You can use extra content . Extra content can be displayed on individual  pages and categories. But then it won't be displayed as an individual article or page. :)

Hey Success and xdimension!  ;)
I've created a "Featured Articles" mod.

Please, check it out on my test sNews 1.6 site:
http://snews.vietbee.net/demos/sNews16/
to login use: test as user and password.

Test it and tell me what you think about it... It's this that do you want to do?

To use, create a new article (or modify an existing one) and check the option "Feature this article" below the "Plublish article".
Thanks.

@bram,
maybe consider extending the mod to include a feature timeout...
ie, say 14 days after being featured (or maybe even published) it drops off the featured list.  
Then in admin, maybe list 'expired featured articles' so as to either reinstate, or remove from featured listing permanently...

Just some thoughts.

@bramsyuur:
That's great, yeah, that's what I'm looking for!
If I may suggest, it would be great if we can see the list of featured articles in admin screen and put the order of those featured articles.
I saw the featured on main page is different than in category page, is it divided by categories?
Does it work only for 1.6? I'm using 1.5 :(
Where can I download this mod? I couldn't find it in Mods/addons board.
Thanks for the mod!

@xdimension:
This mod is not finished at the moment... I'll need to put more code on it... and you can't download it for the moment...
The mod display the "featured articles" in the current category that you're viewing... I need to put an admin panel list to better management, max num of "featured articles" per page... option to un-featured .. and  a lot of work is comming...  :)

Ahhh, so my wanting a "post new article on frontpage" but only for the articles I choose not all articles is somehow possible with this one, eh, Bram ? Like this: http://www.solucija.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=31259#p31259

Oh, please let it be that, please ;)
