Making a featured projects page

Hey guys,

I've put together a portfolio using the custom post types tutorial on here. So I have 3 pages, web, brand and print.. On my homepage I'd like to have 6 featured projects, which I can pick and order myself.. can anyone think of an easy way to do this?

Hi Ben,

To do this you would need to use a custom post type query within your template to retrieve the portfolio items as there's no generic way of doing this within WordPress.

What you want to be looking at is WP_Query which allows you to create custom queries against any valid post type in your current WordPress installation.
