    I'm trying to start a news site (blog) using the virtue free template, but I couldn't make it look like the free template image on the Kadence website.
    I wondering how I do the images appear next to the brief of the post?
    I add images to the post itself, and nothing.
    I know for sure the I'm not enabling some of the features of the template.
    The other thing is how I can tweak the code to make the top banner/slider image to be full width.
    Also how if it's possible to get rid of the date stamp?
    And if I can get rid of the META section on the bottom of the sidebar.

    Somebody can help me?

    Thanks,

    1. You should check out this tutorial: http://www.kadencethemes.com/creating-a-home-page-with-virtue/

    In short, you need to use the appearance > theme options > home layout to set up your home page. Your posts should have a featured image set: http://docs.kadencethemes.com/virtue/#blog_posts

    2. The free theme doesn't have a full page width slider option. see the demo: http://themes.kadencethemes.com/virtue/

    3. You can add this css to your custom css box in the theme options > advanced settings:

    .postmeta {
    display: none;
    }

    4. In the appearance > widget area you can add and remove widgets from your sidebar.

    So, I can make a thumbnail appear next to the brief post using a feature image.
    Once I selected the feature image I enable the Head Content to image?

    No, the head content has to do with the single post. Add a featured image, You can set the summery to portrait image.

    But you should then go to theme options > home layout, enabled "latest posts" and make your home page a static page... please see above tutorial.

    Ok, my mistake, so If I am only using the post listing (not static page) I cannot make look the latest blog posts as image/post excerpt?

    No, you can, it's different the the home page demo, it would look like the blog page:
    http://themes.kadencethemes.com/virtue/blog/

    You can set the summary in the post, that will determine how it will look in a blog format.

    Thank you so much!

    Two lasts questions:
    1. There is any possibility in the free template to add links (kind of menu) that can re-direct you to a particular URL?
    2. How can make the logo a link to my website (not to the blog index)?

    Thanks!

    1. You can make anything a link in the content of a page, where are you wanting these links?

    2. You would have to edit the header.php file. on line 58:

    replace : <?php echo home_url(); ?>

    with your link.

    I'm not sure I understand?

    Yes you can add whatever you want, but you will have to add it, with html and css. Just place your code right in the page content.

    Well I will use the same facefont or font specified by the template on the main CSS.
    Ok, in which particular file (file name I can add the links?

    What I am trying to do is place in the main page something fixed always in the Top Bar. Instead of using the Icons, I will place the names and added a URL value (link) to the words.

    Just a menu basic HTML.

    But I don't know where I can write the code so is always in the top bar.

    Now I'm really not tracking, you said "(kind of menu)" but did that mean you actually just want a menu?

    So Sorry, for my poor grammar and bad sentence structure.

    What I am trying to do is add a fix menu, exactly like the want that your support documents show.
    But, the only difference is that the pages that I will link, are out there from the blog structure.
    There will be links to the 3dmaterialtech.com site.
    I know if I create pages in the dashboard, the menu will show by default those pages. That's why I wonder if I can create a menu, but writing my own URL as links.

    One more time, so Sorry for so much bothering, I really appreciate all that help that you give me.
    I start to use WordPress today, my co-worker start yesterday, so we are not really savvy in this CMS, but is really kind of powerful, looks like the Bootstrap use for HubSpot but in stereoids.

    That is why I don't know if I can just find which file controls the width of the top image (to be able of increase the total width) to make the image border to border of the screen in X axis.

    1. "What I am trying to do is add a fix menu, exactly like the want that your support documents show."

    unfortunately this theme doesn't do that. The documents uses a completely different system. The premium theme can have a sticky header you can check out the premium demo for examples.

    2. You can add a custom link to a worpdress menu, just use the link item:

    3. "That is why I don't know if I can just find which file controls the width of the top image (to be able of increase the total width) to make the image border to border of the screen in X axis."

    as I said above not an option in the free version but it is in premium.
