So simple.
Ease of use
A doddle, upload, install, set a couple of options and you're done. Can be set for any number of days, on publish,creation or update date.
limited, but none really needed
I used this to: A couple of my sites, one that has new content on two days a week to the frontpage. Articles are prepared in advance on one, publish dates set up to a month ahead, then when the next article is due, this plugin un-features the previous week's article. Magic!
This plugin offers a useful functionality that saved me a lot of time and work... i think this should be included in Joomla by default
This plugin does a simple task in a simple way. Choose after how many days the favoured articles are set to normal, based on the date you need (creation, publish or last modification). Is possible to exclude some articles by ID.
