I recently migrated a Joomla site from 1.5 to 2.5, and the site had hundreds of articles set as Featured Articles. Since it was taking a LONG time to check the box of each article on the Featured Articles page, I tried to find a way to remove ALL articles from the Featured articles list.
As with several other Joomla Core Functions (trash and article ordering), the function to remove all Featured articles escaped me. If it escapes you to, here’s the answer.
- From the Joomla Admin menu, select Content > Featured Articles.
Joomla displays the Article Manager: Featured Articles screen.
- Click the top checkbox to select ALL articles.
- Click Remove to remove all selected articles from the Featured Articles list.
Note: This will not delete the article; instead, it removes it from the Featured Articles List.
