I am trying to find a way to mark certain categories in the backend with some sort of 'featured' flag. I would then retrieve those selected categories and display them on a page.
I couldn't find any featured category plugin which does this; I'm wondering if there is a simple way to do this in WP core.
Note: I don't want featured category index pages, widgets, category images, etc. I simply want to be able to check a box (or similar) next to certain categories, so they are marked as special. Then I need to create a query to retrieve only those.
Is this possible?
