Update December 29, 2015: This post is part of the WPMU DEV Blog archive and contains information that is out-of-date, but we’re keeping it on the blog for posterity. For all the latest WordPress news and resources, check out the WPMU DEV Blog.

Featplug is a plugin that can mine your WordPress -even WordPress MU-, (or any other Blog/CMS/Forum software’s) posts and generates ‘featured content’ section for your blog using the posts and images.

Features:

  • Image caching (once a image is re-sized & rendered by plugin, it’s cached for future hits which saves lots of performance)
  • Template support ( embedding & editing any output template is easy. You can just use any JS/Ajax script to output the contents!)
  • Layered architecture: input_layer (Standalone, WordPress etc) → featplug engine → output theme (simple banners, slide show etc)
  • Image enlarging
Benefits for WordPress MU:
As MU is multiuser environment, the main page for your MU blog can just generate featured content for your visitors from all the different authors.
