The Advanced Featured Post Widget does, what the Featured Post Widget is doing also; it’s a customizable multi-widget, that displays a single post in the widget area. You can decide, whether or not the post thumbnail is displayed, whether the post title is above or beneath the thumbnail and a couple of more things. And of course, you can style the widget individually. So far that is the same as my Featured Post Widget does also. Not every theme has the possibility to hide certain sidebars on different pages. That’s where the advanced of our plugin comes in. In the AFPW you can determine, where exactly the widget is showing and in the settings you can customize the links of your widget(s).
