Can you elaborate as to what "promoting to the front page" means? Do you then have control of where to place it?

In Drupal, this basically sets a flag on the node/content so it can be used in views. In D8 there is a default “front-page” view that uses this flag to add items there.

In custom builds that don’t use the front page view, you have to set that flag in a view yourself as a filter if you want it to work. I’ve done this for blogs and such where I want folks to be able to showcase only certain posts but it’s not necessarily on the “front page”. I think a better name for that would be “promoted content” or something.
