:Good question.

:Hi Dawne, I think you already discovered the answer to your question, but for the benefit of others -- The way to add the star to an article is by using the {{tl|Featured article}} template. Do this by adding the code {{xt|<nowiki>{{Featured article}}</nowiki>}} to the bottom of an article, just before the categories. --[[User:Cottrells|Steve]] 16:28, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Which option in the preferences has the ability to control the featured article star? -Fran 13:43, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Good question. The template code was developed in Wikipedia where they have a CCS class that is used to control the display of these topicons as I don't have access to the CSS code, I removed the class from the template, thus enabling it for all users. Bottom line there is no user preference to show/hide the featured article star in the FSwiki, so I have removed the reference to one from the article. --Steve 16:25, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Understanding

I may not be understanding, how can I put a bronze star on all the articles we have featured thus far or can I? 

Much thanks Steve,

Hi Dawne, I think you already discovered the answer to your question, but for the benefit of others -- The way to add the star to an article is by using the {{Featured article}} template. Do this by adding the code {{Featured article}} to the bottom of an article, just before the categories. --Steve 16:28, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
