Support » Theme: Lobster » Adding content below the widget on the front page

  • Resolved bibigeon



    First of all let me congratulate you for the great work you’ve done with this theme, it’s insanely great !!

    I would like to add below the widget on the front page more content but you would like it to be added straight into the source instead of creating a page… I can’t find the place where im supposed to add the code.
    Would you be kind enough to give me a little clue ? 🙂

    Thanks a lot !

  • I kind of found a way to get around it by editing the file theme-options.php.
    It’s not really what I wanted to do in the first place coz I suppose this file is not meant to be edited to add content other than the widget but down the line it works and I can get everything I need from that page.

    I still want to know how to edit the frontpage without going through theme-options.php though…it’s way to messy as it currently is.

    I’m trying to do this because i want to get a single frontpage website, I reckon boostrap fits really nicely single page websites !

    Hi Bibigeon

    You can keep all the changes to your theme-options.php if you use a child theme and by creating a ‘inc’ folder and copy the theme-options.php into it 🙂 That way you can save your custom code.

    What I think what would be best for you is to create your own front-page.php template file.

    Template Name: Your Front Page
    //Your Custom Bootstrap Markup Here

    You can copy templates that already exist, you can also add the WP loop to display posts. This way will give you by far the most freedom.

    Or you could add a dynamic side-bar and register a widget-area!

    Let me know if you want to register a new widget area.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the quick answer ruphel !
    I don’t think I need a new widget area, it works fine the way it is.

    I have created my own front-page.php and it’s perfect, all the advantages of both WP and your theme with the freedom of coding what I want ! It’s just as good as it could get !
