Coraline: Featured articles in Featured widget area

    Is it possible (an how) to visualise Featured articles in the featured widget area (top right)?

    The blog I need help with is chrisrail09.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi there,
    Here's the link to the detailed theme description for Coraline:
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/coraline/
    I don't see anything at all stated there about a "Featured articles in the featured widget area (top right)".

    Coraline
    A featured image that is at least 990 x 180 pixels will be used as the header image for that post/page (if the featured image is smaller than these dimensions, then the theme will display the custom header image, if one has been added). http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/#other-featured-images

  3. You can always put links to your favorite posts in a text widget, and give the widget the title "Featured Articles."

  4. P.S. This new post on the Staff blog may interest you http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2013/08/19/customizing-coraline/

  5. I saw that staff article, timethief, and I use Coraline, but I like to keep it simple. I've never become a regular reader of a blog because of its appearance. Content is everything.

  6. Hi there,

    Content is everything.

    Agreed. I'm visually challenged and distracting widget laden blogs do not encourage me to follow at all. The more decorative and cluttered a blog is the less the chance there is that I will follow the blog.

    Thanks for your answer. Actually i know how to personalize text widget and that would be the solution if nothing better is possible, but what i would like to have is a widget where an article or abstract of an article or so could be.

  8. There is no such widget. You need to use a text widget and create your own.
