Genesis Featured Widget Amplified adds additional functionality to the Genesis Featured Posts Widget. Specifically it:

  • Supports Custom Post Types
  • Supports Custom Taxonomies
  • Exclude Term by ID field
  • Supports Pagination
  • Supports Meta Key Values
  • Supports Sorting by Meta Key
  • Multiple Hooks and Filters for adding additional content

This plugin requires the Genesis Theme Framework
While the plugin will work on the HTML5 “Pro” themes, the HTML markup only supports the older XHTML themes at this time. It is not recommended for use on the new HTML5 themes.

Thanks to David Decker, this plugin is translation ready. German translation files included.

Special Thanks

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to all the folks at StudioPress, their themes make my life easier.
