Display a Specific Post in Feature Box

Applies to Version(s): Thesis 1

The Thesis Feature Box is handy for a variety of purposes, and among these is highlighting a specific post from your blog. Once you’ve configured your Feature Box based on the information in Using Feature Box Options, you can add the following code to your custom_functions.php file to add your desired post to the Box:

function fbox_post() {
    query_posts('p=117'); 
    if (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> 
    <div <?php post_class($classes); ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
	<div class="headline_area">
	<h2 class="entry-title"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
	<?php thesis_byline();
	echo "</div>\n";
	$post_image = thesis_post_image_info('thumb');
	echo "\n";
	echo "\t\t\t\t<div class=\"format_text entry-content\">\n";
	echo $post_image['output'];
	the_excerpt();
	echo "\t\t\t\t</div>\n</div>\n";
    endif;
    wp_reset_query();
}
add_action('thesis_hook_feature_box','fbox_post');  

Note that you will need to change the 117 in this line here to be the ID of the post you wish to highlight:

    query_posts('p=117'); 

Once you save the changes to your custom_functions.php file, view your refreshed site to see your new Feature Box with your desired post on display:
