My question is more general and out of curiosity. I've been perusing the Themes Showcase daily trying to find the best fit for my website ( http://aliannedonnelly.com ) I love the themes which allow a "Featured Post" option that cycles through a number of sticky posts in one defined section of the main page. For an author like myself, that function would be amazing if I could feature static pages rather than posts to showcase a series, or titles coming soon in a more dynamic way. It would also be perfect for artists and artisans who want to display the best of their work.
I realize that WordPress is predominantly for blogging and I am aware of the differences between posts and static pages, but with all the options and features WordPress offers it really is a great and easy-to-use platform for creating beautiful and functional websites, too. I was just wondering, is there a reason why the "Featured" function is limited to posts? Could/would this function possibly be added to static pages as well?
The blog I need help with is aliannedonnelly.com.
