Featuring an Article

Featured articles appear at the top of the news landing page. 

To feature an article, create/edit an article and check the "featured" box.

There is no cap on the number of articles that can be featured. To manage this, navigate to the news landing page and if there are more than you'd like, you'd manually click on that article and uncheck the featured button to make it go away. This also allows more flexibility too (sometimes you may want 3 featured articles and sometimes you may want 4 featured articles, for example)
