SP Easy Image Gallery Module - Display only featured albums

Featured Lock Resolved Task
Would it be possible to add a feature to the SP Easy Image Gallery module to only display albums in a category that are featured? I'd like to only show featured albums on the frontpage using the module, but have all albums available from Album Category page. Thanks!

Hi,
Thanks for your query. Sorry there is no default feature to show only the featured images there. But you can choose all the albums from the same category.
1) Give the same category to all the featured albums http://prntscr.com/lxfs2h
2) Then just publish the module using that category http://prntscr.com/lxftcq

Hi Sifat, Good thought, except for the fact that if I were to move the album I'm wanting to feature into a "featured category," it would no longer be inside of the broader category it is supposed to be in. For example, if I'm doing a high school sports athletics website, I'd have album categories for basketball, football, baseball, etc.; but I may pick out one album from each category to highlight on the front page. I'd mark these albums as "Featured" in the album settings; however, there is no way to display these featured albums on the front page without moving those albums out of their sports category into a featured category. This is really more work and more complicated than it can/should be, plus than the sport category is missing one of the albums because it's in a "featured" category.

Can this be added as a feature request for Easy Image Gallery module? It shouldn't be too difficult to add, especially since the ability to mark an album as featured is already there.

Thanks!
