Bring attention to certain blog posts by using the Featured Posts option. In Bedford, the date, title, and thumbnail image of the five most recently published Featured Posts display as a slideshow in the banner area.
Whether you’ve already published a post or are about to write a new one, any post can be turned into a Featured Post. To do this, go to the Pages panel and click on a Blog Page. Select the post you want to edit and click the Edit button. Then, click the Options tab and check Featured Post at the bottom of the Blog Post Editor. The Options tab also lets you upload a thumbnail image, which is used as a banner image. Once you’re done, click Save. If the thumbnail image, date, and post title do not appear in the banner, simply click the Refresh button in your browser. Learn more.
