Homepage posts as nodes or grid (3 posts)

    I'd like to know if there is a way to set the homepage as nodes instead of full posts. I'd like to use the grid for all posts instead of just one category. If this theme is supposed to be a magazine theme, then it shouldn't have to show full posts on the home page.

    Either that or at least be able to display the posts like the are on mobile, with just a thumbnail next to the title link, that would also work.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I second this. Is it possible the theme will be updated to accomodate this? Or is there a plugin that you'd recommend that works well? I've tried some plugins but haven't found one that works well with this theme.

    Awesome theme, btw! Thanks for all your hard work!

  3. If you'd like to display post excerpts instead of full posts on the homepage, you can create a child theme, modifying the necessary template files to use the_excerpt() instead of the_content()

    Codex references: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt & http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_content

    Making a child theme means your changes won't be overwritten when you update the theme. If you're new to child themes, you can explore these guides:

    Let us know how it goes, and feel free to post back if you get stuck.
