There are WordPress plugins out there to pull popular posts to your sidebar, but what if you have posts in a category that you want to MAKE popular by featuring them? I looked high and low and could not find anything that did what I needed, so I had it created for me.
The new Post Emphasis WordPress Plugin pulls posts form specified categories on your blog into your sidebar as links to featured posts. Because the plugin is tied to your categories and not to specific posts, as you update important categories, the plugin makes sure your site-wide sidebar is updated with the latest links.
Now that the kinks are worked out, I am making this plugin openly available to anyone who wants to use it. Click here to download the Post Emphasis Plugin.
The plugin was coded by Rohan Shenoy. I found Rohan by posting a request for a plugin coder on the Digital Point Forums. He did an amazing job, and had the final revision to me in hours.
Linking to posts in categories you want to promote helps draw readers deeper into your blog’s content which reduces bounce rate, increases page views, and leads to more return readership.
Let me know if you have any questions about the plugin or suggestions as to how it could be improved.
