WordPress Hack – How to Make Dynamic Magazine Style Theme Using WordPress 3.0 Featured Images!

You know WordPress 3.0 was introduced couple weeks back and I was so excited that Matt and their team have done a beautiful job of implementing “Featured Images”, which allow you to make a “dynamic magazine” style theme, while not hindering performance of your WordPress.

But you know, it looked awful, I never liked it nor was it optimized.  My blog
