Post Promotion is a plugin that "sticks" a post on the top of your Homepage. This acts like the reddit promoted posts.
The posts in the "Promoted Posts" list are randomly displayed in a Box in your home page.
Anyone who has the "can_promote" permission should be able to add a story in the "Promoted Posts" list.
- Unzip the contents of the zip archive inside your <hotaru_installation_directory>/content/plugins/ so that you end up with the post_promotion folder in there.
- Then go into Admin->Plugin Management and install the Post Promotion plugin. Order the plugins so that the Post Promotion plugin is first in the first column.
- To promote a post, visit the post on your website and click on the "Promote Post" link which can be found after the post's body.
- Clicking on the "Promote Post" link will take you to the Post Promotion Settings page in the Admin Area.
- In the settings page you will be informed whether the post was promoted or not along with a list of currently promoted posts.
- You can un-promote posts by clicking the up-Promote link on post bottom or from the listing of the promoted posts in the Post Promotion Settings admin page.
