Setup a Featured Posts Section

  1. Create a canvas with your featured post layout containing the placeholders you want shown for the post: Featured Image, Post Title, Post Top Category, etc.
  2. Add a canvas view and move the placeholder layers into the view folder.  If you are creating a side-by-side layout, divide each post into it's own canvas view.
  3. Change the canvas type to Wordpress: Posts View Lookup
  4. Define the Tag Name Slug: (typically "featured") and the Number of Posts to show.  
    **If you define more posts than your layout supports, be sure to activate for Canvas Views to Auto Advance

Example of a Side-by-Side Layout of Featured Posts

If you want to allow users to cycle through additional sets of posts, be sure to set the number of posts larger than the number in your layout (ie. Layout is 3 posts, set Number of Posts to 9). Then be sure to set for the canvas to either Auto-Advance under the Canvas > View Transitions settings. Or setup arrows on the canvas and link them to Canvas > This Canvas > Next/Previous to allow click through of the posts.
