A featured article in Joomla 2.5 is an article that is set to show on your front page. You can toggle articles in Joomla 2.5 as featured / not featured within the article list in the Joomla administrator backend.

To feature an article on your Joomla 2.5 front page:

  1. Log into your Joomla Admin
  2. In the top menu, hover over Content and then click Article Manager
  3. Browse your list of articles or use the filter feature to find the article you want on your front page. Then, under Featured, click the grey button - it will refresh the page and turn the button into a blue / white star. The article is now set as a Featured Article.
