Support » Theme: Gridbox » Filtering Posts within Gridbox Home Page

    We are experimenting with Gridbox for a new project. My colleague has been working on the page layout with mixed success.

    He has used the Featured posts options to create a two row display of articles/posts at the top of the home page. This works just fine.

    He then wants the non-featured posts to appear at the bottom of the page. However, I cannot find a means to filter the posts by category – I’ve set a category with a slug labelled ‘front’ but I guess we could use any other category other than Featured.

    Is there a means to filter what appears on the home page by category or, possibly, tag?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there,

    Thanks so much for using Gridbox.

    The content of the Featured Posts is retrieved by the theme from the WordPress database with an extra database query, based on the theme settings.

    The default content on your blog home page is determined by the WordPress main query and the default WordPress loop, which is based on the URL of the page (blog, archive page, search etc.).

    This means it is outside of the theme, but you can change the default post query of WordPress with extra filters and plugins.

    I guess the Ultimate Category Excluder plugin should work fine for your suits. You can download the plugin on https://wordpress.org/plugins/ultimate-category-excluder/

    Best,
    Thomas

    Thanks for the helpful reply.

    Sadly, the plugin suggested seems to filter out the Featured items at the top (Featured Posts area) as well as in the bottom.

    You’ve pointed me in a direction to go. Thanks. We’ll see if we can work out the best way forward.

    Andrew
