Rewind
Custom Front Page (6 posts)

    I am trying to set up my front page with Rewind, and I want it to look exactly like the demo screen except for the body copy right under the slider. I cannot figure out how to get the three smaller images along the bottom. If they are posts, they don't align horizontally when I create posts. I would prefer a simple image/text box as the homepage will be static (i.e., would prefer no posts on the homepage). I guess I assumed the front page would automatically look like the demo page, but I can't get to that point. Can anyone suggest what I am doing wrong?

    There's a readme.txt file inside the theme. Please check it out, you have details there.

    You need to create a category named 'featured' and assign posts to that category.
    Create a page, and select the 'Custom Front Page' template from the template dropdown. Then in 'Settings-Reading' select the new page to be the front page of your website.

    Hello. I love your theme. It's clean and simple and shows up beautifully on mobile.

    How do I replace the site title with an image? My client would like his company logo there instead of the company name. I looked through the read me file, but found nothing on how to do it.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi,

    There is not an option in the theme, but you can edit the code manually. In 'header.php' replace this code

    <h1 class="site-title"><a href="<?php echo esc_url( home_url( '/' ) ); ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home"><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?></a></h1>

    with this one

    <a href="<?php echo esc_url( home_url( '/' ) ); ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home"><img src="your image url" /></a>

    Upload your logo in Media Manager, and replace your image url above, with the actual url.

    Thanks! Another question. How do I changed the size of the slider container to show larger images?

    If you're using a custom css plugin, you can add this css code

    #slider {height: 450px;}

    then in functions.php file you need to change the size of the slider image here

    add_image_size('slidethumb', 710, 300, true);

    You might need to regenerate your thumbnails after that.
