Hi there,
When you click on the "featured" button in the article manager, what does that really do? I clicked on it, and then viewed my site and it seemed like nothing happened. Thanks!

Hi and welcome John

At least with a default Joomla set up, the featured articles are the ones that appear on the homepage. But, with more developed sites, often that's no longer true.

Do the articles you see under "Featured Articles" have any relationship to the ones on your site's frontpage?

Thanks, Steve. I think the issue might be that I'm not using the default set up (someone developed a site for me and I'm trying to learn how to use it). The article I selected as a featured article doesn't have any relationship to the ones on my site's frontpage other than it is a published article, but it does not appear on the home page.

Thanks John

In that case you happily ignore it. The Featured Articles options is often skipped in favor of more advanced layout options for the homepage.

Happily ignoring things is what I do best! Thanks for your help.
