I followed the directions to have a Featured post (by this, I mean the post that is all the way at the top by itself before the portfolio section), but nothing happens. In fact, unless I set a post to be ‘sticky’ it doesn’t even jump to be the first of the latest blog posts. Not sure what I’m missing here?
Exact actions (this is in wordpress.com, not self-hosted):
Went to Customize Theme (there is no Appearances) > Featured Content > chose a name for the featured tag > Saved > went to one of my test posts > Edit > Categories & Tags > checkmarked the tag I just created for Featured posts > Update (but nothing happens)
