I tried featuring a blog post i just published but no luck. i don't see the 'feature content' option from the front end, and when i selected it as a command in the admin panel, i got a message that said it was skipped. is it possible to feature a blog?
Yes, Hoop.la supports featuring blog posts. I'm guessing that the setting to allowing featuring blog posts has been disabled in your Blog control panel, especially if you are not seeing the option there when you create/edit the blog post.
To see if that is the case, go into your Admin Control Panel, and under Modules, go into the Blog control panel area. Look for this section:
Make sure that the "Enable Featured Blog Posts" box is checked. If that is already checked, then there is some other issue (and if so, please give me the URL for the blog post you are trying to feature so we can investigate further). I suspect though, that it is just a case of that checkbox not being checked.
that worked! thanks!
