Featured Articles/Pages

Would like to see a Featured Articles/Pages addition to work as featured products does so that the Article (page) will display in the main block and to have the ability for users to comment and/or reply to the posted Featured Article. This addition is called Featured Articles and only Articles will display in the main block while pages will continue to display in the side boxes. While we’re at it maybe we can add extra side boxes similar to Ads and be able to assign Articles/Pages to a specific sidebox. Would like to hear comments and possible improvements from others on Featured Articles.

I like the idea of having extra sideboxes that you can assign certain items to.
