Featured Content on Homepage

Hi Tammie,

I saw there was a post on this earlier, but it was resolved by the original author without any posting of the answer. I know it is simple and I appreciate your patience. I don't know what the logic is behind the featured content area on the home page of BP Daily. It seems like it should be very easy to add posts to this area by editing the Theme Options. Essentially, what I'm trying to do is pull posts that exist on different sites (formerly blogs) within my domain. I have posts that are categorized with the category I am looking to highlight in the featured content area, but the only posts that it finds are the mock ones that I've created in the Admin site. What am I missing here? Clearly, the admin site is the least interesting of the entire domain and I'm sure it is not what is expected to be highlighted on the front page.

Thx
Paul
