The pinboard theme has the feature of showing post preview on home page with a picture, i have searched everywhere there are no instructions on how to do that, i am a newbie in wordpress and this maybe very simple but i cant fiure out how its done. Please guide me, any help would be really appreciated
and after the posts show on the home page is it possible to link them to a wordpress page?
Lets get your first question answered before we go further. To make the posts show up on the homepage go to “Appearance” then “Customize” on your current theme. Then on the right you will see the item “Static Front Page” Make sure that this option is “Most recent posts” Then create some posts. In each post add a “Featured Image” This should be an option on the right below where you actually type the content. Here is a screen shot, you can see the featured image on the right.
I did that, and the posts do start showing but they dont show on the default homepage,instead they show on a page which appears when i click on the logo and i cant find that page, its most likely the index.php page since it doesnt have any further extension after the domain where wordpress is installed and i have no clue how to edit that from wordpress dashboard.
Also the page is not full width, please take a look and tell me what i’m doing wrong.
OK so I think you have a couple issues which will involve a little css but not bad. First make sure you have your landing page set as what it should be. Go to “Settings” then “Reading” Make sure that your front page displays your latest post, save the settings. Then go to “Appearance” then “Menus” and expand the “Home” menu option. Change the url in this option to be http://www.riseleadershipgroup.com/wptest19_2/ instead of the /home page. Now you need to add the following custom css so that your landing page is 1140px wide.
You should always start a new thred for the latest issue, but w/e. In order to hide the Slider posts from the main loop what I did was make a category called “Slider Posts” Then I updated all my slider posts to be in only this category. I then went to “Appearance” then “Theme Options” under “Portfolio Page” I picked “Slider Posts” for my portfolio category. Then under “Home Page” I check the “Exclude Portfolio Category from Main Loop” This should do the trick.
