Q2. How to display featured posts in any desired section of theme(Developers)?
In order to display featured posts in your theme, use the following code to fetch the posts.
$featured_posts = Thfp_public::thfp_get_featured_posts();
The above code return WP_Query object which you can use in a loop. Above static function accepts a parameter(int) which limits the number of posts which it can return.
Show the posts with the help of custom loop:-
if($featured_posts->have_posts()): while($featured_posts->have_posts()): $featured_posts->the_post(); //Your code here endwhile; endif;
You can also use your own wp_query. Make sure you use ‘tag’ key to be ‘featured’.
$args = array( 'post_status' => 'publish', 'tag' => 'featured', //Use any other needed args ); $featured_posts = new WP_Query($args);
and then use the loop to display posts.
