    All it does currently is list out hyperlinked featured threads titles.

    @Audentio Design anty plans on expanding on this widget to display a small icon/image as per what the FT&P setting is for that featured thread? Also perhaps expanding on the types of renderers so that it can display the full featured thread including snippet, so that it can be used in main content widget positions and not just the sidebar?

    Not entirely sure what this widget is supposed to be showing?

    What your widget lists....just looks like a random selection of featured threads? (using the BD Framework render)

    It may be ordering on a different column (I haven't checked the code).

    Oops, will add one in.

    We whipped it together in just a few minutes so we didn't add any features to it, just thought someone might want a basic feed. But I think we can add this in sure, it can be useful. We'll add

    [] Show Avatar
    [] Show date
    [] Show author's username

    This sound good?

    As for other renders, since FT already has such powerful functionality, this was mainly just for a quick sidebar block I guess.

    Eek! Will check this out.

    Try using getFeaturedThreadsByDate or getFeaturedThreadsByThreadDate, depending on how you want to order them.

    You're currently using getFeaturedThreads which is not ideal as that is the query used pre-permission checks, which has ordering based on slider date.

    If I may add a suggestion, if possible make it a widget that shows a thumbnail pulled from the featured thread image, that would be seriously awesome to have!

    Great add-on, would serious consider what has been suggested by Bram - to show the thumbnail using the thumbnail image from the main "Featured Threads" page:
