Code can be just copied and pasted into the page from an article and it has the same look. There is also a featured posts feature of this slider, where it takes a category name as parameter and displays the posts in a preformatted design.
Several custom widgets comes with the BigFeature theme. They are prefixed with BF, so it’s easy to see them in the widgets admin area. They were initially written for the pre wp2.8 API, but since the multiwidget API got so much simpler, they were recoded. That also means that the theme’s minimal requirement became WP2.8, but new is better than old! The new admin area widgets also got much simpler, now widgets can be dragged to a sidebar and rearranged without having to save.
