Featured Categories on Homepage

Starting with PHP Melody v2.5 you can show videos from selected categories on your homepage. We call those “featured categories”. To show a featured category on your homepage simply browse to your PHP Melody back-end and follow the instructions as illustrated below.

Clicking on the home icon will mark any category as “featured”.

Featured Channels

The “Featured Channel” option allows you to promote and provide a higher visibility to certain accounts form your user base.

Depending on the project’s requirements, the “featured channel” mark can be used to:

  • Highlight accounts with high quality content form your user base
  • Promote accounts in exchange for payment
  • Organize the content based on the type of user
  • Target specific users based on their interests (in development)

This feature was introduced in PHP Melody v2.6 and is part of the “Social Module”.
