It will be very nice if in ED backend will be option for Featured Category (one or more..).
Usually in ED you had specified sequence of categories list and you dont want to change it. And sometimes come the period when you wish to have one (or more) category on the top of list but just short time (maybe week, month..). And now you must change the sequence of category by clicking on buttons for up / down... and it is very time consuming.
Please give this in one of the next versions
it is the same as for Featured posts
