Thanks for the post. I am currently trying to configure the Featured Content Gallery plugin, it is a bit difficult but I will get through it. I am trying to get it to show up on only one page, not all of them.

Thanks for your feedback on Jquery and Mootools. I edited the post with the essence of your comments.
Secondly, i also updated how to fix mootools based plugins with Jquery.
I posted the resolution of the issue i.e how to resolve JQuery, Prototype, and lightbox issues to make them work on same page.
Thanks for suggesting Smooth Slider.
Smooth Slider is another content slider where you can have thumbnail image, Post Title, Excerpt,custom content or content part etc. It is a search engine optimized plugin which is lighter in weight but looks very professional on a blog.
Its is a free wordpress plugin, for demo, look at my home page "Internet Techies".
Anyways, Nice info provided here bu Honey Singh and of course featured posts slider increases google indexing as well as clickthru on some of the best contents from blog.

Hi i must agree with Roderick.
The Featured Content Gallery is from a russian company nad it is not compatible with other plugins. E.g. Light Box, Collapsed Categories, etc.
Nice post, but it should be noted that the "FeaturedContentGallery" plugin is not based in the jQuery framework but in the Mootols framework.
It is worth noting because Wordpress is geared (mostly) towards jQuery and most plugins created for WP use jQuery, so to have both frameworks at the same time is overkill, furthermore, the FCG plugin conflicts with many other jQ plugins.
Use it only if you don't use any jQuery in your Wordpress site or if you use plugins that use Mootools.
