Thanks! David March 4, 2006 at 5:59 am #6343 mattStaff You could give them a special category. March 4, 2006 at 6:33 am #6346 davidchuhayesMember Right. I thought about that one. But you’re saying there’s really no way to quick-add/-remove such a designation. I’d have to go into the dashboard or something like ecto and manually remove these things. Makes sense. Perhaps a plug-in will be made to “quick-highlight” or “quick-star” certain posts. March 4, 2006 at 9:39 am #6348 marcMember There are a number of plugins that do this function in a variey of ways. Because of security concerns plugins, at least for now, are not allowed at WP.com. March 4, 2006 at 11:26 am #6349 davidchuhayesMember Hi Marc, Can you please point me in the direction of a good one? I’m very new and wouldn’t know which to pick unless I tried out every single one. BTW: Is there some sort of ranking system or rating system for plug-ins? A site that rates plug-ins? Thanks, David March 4, 2006 at 12:21 pm #6350 camdenladyMember try a ‘best of’ page, or perhaps a best of link category? A little bit of work to set it up, but easy to operate once you’re underway March 4, 2006 at 2:40 pm #6351 marcMember I could point you any any number of directions for plugins, Like here or this link for example. But as I said previously you can’t install them in a WP.com blog. Author Posts The topic ‘Starring posts?’ is closed to new replies.
