    Yeah, I didn't think of that. I'll double check. The code doesn't
    specify a number, so I assumed that was all of them. Looking closely
    at it, I can see that it's doing a BB_Query without specifying a
    number, so it may only be displaying the first 15.

    I can make it do anything at all, including lounge singing, but having
    three random themes show up in the featured list does strike me as
    rather strange. 

  We were just thinking of having a random theme picked automagically for say 7 days...
  but having it sing would be better ;)

    Short answer: Use Stick To Front to make a theme featured.
