Is it possible for generic content items to be within multiple categories? I'm new to Sitefinity, and I need to create a products module based on generic content. I would like to create a Products View control that could display content items by category, and I know that this is already built into controls like News View. If I were able to add a "Featured" category to a particular item, in addition to any other category already applied to it, then it would be very easy to manage items that I wanted to feature at given times. By doing it this way, all my featured items could be grouped easily through categories and I wouldn't have to manage multiple instances of a single content item.
I realize that there are likely others ways to approach this issue, but that just seemed like an easy way to do things. If a Sitefinity veteran could lend me a hand I would appreciate it.
