Show Featured links on Home page
Can you please give me a great idea for showing Featured links.

I created my own doctype some thing like file doctype. And I need to provide option to show one link or two links on home page.

And admin user can change Featured links at any time.

For this, I have an idea, but not interested:-
Create folder and add linked doc in side that node and show using repeater. But every time admin user need to delete the old child node and create new linked doc for new featured link. But, I don't want to full my database by creating new nodes.

Another idea:-
Planing to create one more Doctype with Document/page selector as input option. So, admin user will select the Doctype every time on form tab.

Please suggest me with best idea, Thanks in advance.

RE:Show Featured links on Home page

This is fully up to you and your project - how you wish the user to update those links.

You can use the repeater as you mentioned or, yiou can also use editable region or static HTML web parts and insert the links or also as you mentioned to create another document type - but this seems to me not a good idea - you will have one useless document type and you can achieve the same e.g. using editable text web part - the user will change the link in it and not on the Form tab.
