Within wp-admin, we need the ability to select a single post as the featured post. This featured post will be displayed on all pages. I know I can make a post "sticky" but we would like to have only one item featured -- and using "sticky" could mean that multiple items are featured.
Is there a way to have wordpress un-check all other "sticky" values when a content editor selects another as "sticky"?
If not, is there a better approach to this, like creating a widget that allows the content editor to select a single post?
