This is to let libcom site administrators and editors know that a little while ago we changed slightly how articles displayed across libcom.org.
If you want an article to show as lead article on the front page of libcom.org, at the bottom of the article click the link saying "lead" as before.
If you want it to show up on the front page, but not as the lead article, click the link saying "front-page". N.b. this also works if you want to make old articles front-page (for example on an anniversary of a historical event). So this is particularly useful for news/blog articles.
If you want your article to show up in the featured bar on the right of the page, and in the featured boxes at the bottom of every page, click the link saying "featured" below your article. So basically the featured link is now for timeless content which will still be relevant in a few months/years.
So basically the change is that front-page is to highlight news/current/blog articles, and featured is to highlight timeless content.
I hope this helps clear things up for people. Any questions don't hesitate to ask
