I achieved this by placing the features section in the Site Header template, below navigation, and checking both "Hide This By Default" and "Show on Posts Pages"in the advanced setup pulldown on that section.

For StationPro, I don't know that this is possible without customization. So you know, all the themes are going to be updated into child themes for PlatformPro, so they can have all the newest features too. Thanks, Bryan

Hi Bryan, Your good news is only beneficial to PlatformPro users. StationPro3 user will be left in the cold, unless there is a StationPro3 upgrade with an Option to select "Feature" for the users "Blog Posts Pages" or any Pages of choice. In fact all the Templates in StationPro3 should be available for all Pages/Blog Pages. That was one of the reasons why I payed for the full version. Thanks, SHAZ.

If you take a look at template_posts.php inside of the library folder in StationPro. Change this line `` to this: `` This should place it above the blog page. Further steps would have to be taken to choose the category you want to show but we'll get there later.
