    Hi,

    Good work all. I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out the best way to implement a featured content control as in this example http://www.frontpageslideshow.net/

    I have been trying to extend the ListPageMaster (News), but it only provides on repeater. I am guessing I need 2 repeaters, 1. for the thumbnail and news title/short summary and 2. another to implement the large images with the summary and headline info.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards///

    Got it working... here is what i did.

    1. Enabled Jquery on the template
    2. Downloaded JQuery.Tools.min from www.flowplayer.org
    3. I used the tab feature that it includes.
    4. Load 2 Newsview control on the page, both pointing to my "Featured News Category"
    5. Created 2 customized NewsView templates
    6. One customized control only showed the thumbnails
    7. the other showed the large image and the headline and summary
