  31. Hello,

    I am using Flow template (http://flow-soratemplates.blogspot.com.br/) but the Featured Post widget, which is just below the main menu (the big three images only) is not working correctly. None of the options in the documentation is working Though (http://www.sorabloggingtips.com/2017/06/how-to-setup-flow-blogger-template.html).

    I've tried many things already, set a tag called feature to the posts and even make more than 5 posts, none of them could make it work.

    The ''sorabox'' code for the maganize section woroker very well, So far, I assume the codes are not working properly or they are not the correct ones to be used in this feature (Featured Post).

    Can you please check and let us know what the correct code should be? Thank you

      02 - Recent Posts: recent

      03 - Random Posts: random

      But when we checked your blog, we saw you have added "custom". you don't have any label name like that, then how the widget will work.
