News Flash items can now be featured, so they appear at the top of the News Flash module and categories, as well as appearing first in News Flash widgets.
You can Feature items via the Actions menu or within the Modify Item screen.
A gold star will appear next to the item name once featured. Featuring an item will add it to a Featured News section above all categories and appear first in every widget that includes that category.
You can also Unfeature items through the Actions menu and unchecking Feature this news when modifying an item.
