    I am ready to release my Featured Posts Plugin, their may be some bugs but as far as I can tell it works good, at least for me.

    This selects randomly one of the blogs provided and gets the most recent post from it. Thanks to the users at the MU Forums for their help debugging this especially users MrBrian and infoclipper.

    You can download it at: http://dailytestimony.net/plugins/featured-posts.php

    Checkout my list of original and modified plugins at: http://dailytestimony.net/plugins/

    DailyTestimony, i have been waiting for this! Many thanks!!!! I want to use it and have downloaded it and placed it in mu-plugins. Excuse my noviceness but how do you use it? I have placed < ? php featured_posts(); ? > in my theme index.php but nothing happens. Can it be used in mu-plugins or does it have to go in the plugins folder?

    DailyTestimony--a couple of issues:
    1)on the "home" page, on the 1st load it does not show the post. It just shows the date and the word more. Check it out at http://mytimewithgod.net
    2)it is not valid markup. Here are some of the errors:
    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fmytimewithgod.net%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&group=0
    Starting at Line 263, Column 23 (the ones before that are ones (3 of them) that i could not get corrected. Thanks for any help in clearing up these issues.

    1) It's displaying fine for me. What browser are you using?

    2) I can't tell for sure, but it looks like the issues are with the post being displayed and not with anything doing with the plugin but I don't know for sure.

    1)it happens in both firefox2 and IE7

    2)i don't understand the posts being displayed part of the statement. This main site does not display any posts except from the featured posts plugin

    I just came across this post and checked out carnold's issue. I can verify that I am seeing the same thing on Windows FF2. First load, only date (december...1969) and "more" link. Second page load, full title, correct date, full post.

    @dailyTestimony-any idea why this is happening?

    Some issues:

    The instructions are not clear:

    Does the plugin go in "plugins" or "mu-plugins"

    Is the php code `<? php featured_posts(); ?>' ?

    Can this code be run on the sidebar, perhaps showing an except only?

    Thanks for the help ...

    Grab the latest zip, I added a readme comple with instructions.

    It's not designed for the sidebar, it would likley need to be modified.
