Blog Introduction

Blog Introduction inserts a static intro before posts (on homepage or archive pages). Introduction content is taken from a designated page.

Blog Introduction displays an introduction (heading and/or contents of certain page) before posts. Intro content comes from a designated page, please see below for examples.

An introduction can appear on your

  • home page (from page whose URL - aka permalink aka slug - is, by default, 'blog-introduction'),
  • category archive pages (intro from page 'yourcategoryurl-cat-intro', e.g. category has 'widgets' slug, then intro comes from page that has slug 'widgets-cat-intro'),
  • tag archive pages (intro from page 'yourtagurl-tag-intro', e.g. tag is 'blue-widgets', then use 'blue-widgets-tag-intro' as intro page slug), and
  • author archive pages (intro from page 'yourauthorurl-author-intro', e.g. author is 'jsmith', then use 'jsmith-author-intro' as intro page slug).

Hide these special pages by making them private.

Plugin options allow for you to:

  • Define who sees the introduction (everyone / logged in users only / visitors only).
  • Choose which parts (heading and/or content) you want to show.
  • Change the heading wrapper tag.
  • Define style (CSS) for various parts of intro.
  • Change where the home page's intro is taken from, either by page id or its permalink.
  • Define home page's the intro (instead of using a specific page).
  • Disable intro on home page and only use it on archive pages.

Default output (for home page):

<div id='blog_introduction' class='blog-introduction-container'>
    <div id='blog_introduction_heading' class='blog-introduction-heading'>
        <h2><span><!-- page title is printed here --></span></h2>
    </div>
    <div id='blog_introduction_content' class='blog-introduction-content'>
        <!-- content is printed here -->
    </div>
</div>
