Create your own category-controlled ‘Top Tip’ to display next to relavant posts.
Display you favourite top tip next to a post with the same category. If you have more than one tip in the matching category the chosen top tip will be a random selection from all within that category. It’s also possible to specify the top tip by id in a shortcode. An optional feature is to add a link to another post containing further information about your Top Tip.
