I was wondering if it’s possible to “Feature” certain contacts or have them as “Sponsors” at the top of the list and in a way that shows them highlighted or something?
There is not yet a way to mark featured entries. There is the Custom Entry Order extension. With this you could set the order of the entries you wish to have list top and in a specific order.
To set an entry to display at the top, you would set the entry order to
1. To have an entry show second, after the entry assigned to
1 you would assign that entry the order of
2. If there is no entry assigned as
1, then the entry assigned
2 would actually be first.
That said, I would recommend setting order by 10’s or even 100’s. This will allow you the opportunity to insert entries in between others. For example having entries assigned orders of
300 would display those entries in that order at the top. So you could insert an entry in between
200 by assigning the order as
Hope that makes sense!
As for “highlighting them…
You could create a “Featured” category and assign the entries you wish to feature to that category. That category name will be applied to the the entry class names which you could use CSS to target to change the visual style to however you wish to make them stand out.
Hope this helps!
