  2. To feature a post you should then open the posting box  
  3. Then, either before or after you have added in the relevant information, like the text and audience, click on the settings cog in the bottom left.  
  4. After clicking that icon a page will appear. Under the 'Advanced Settings' tab, you will see 'Feature post', click where it says 'Feature post'.
  5. Another pop up will appear allowing you to select the amount of time you would like the post to be featured for, or you can stop the post itself from being featured. Once you have selected either option click 'Done' and your post will be featured!
