Clarion: Recreating the Demo - Featured Post

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Clarion Theme for WordPress


Featured Post Section

This area of the front page is the mainbody. It allows you to display featured posts on the front page. There are a couple things that have to be in order in order to see these posts populated in the MainBody section of the page.

First, you will need to have the Display Mainbody and Display Content options set to On in your template settings. You can find these options by navigating to Admin -> Clarion Theme -> Advanced -> Display Mainbody. You will also want to make sure that the posts you want to display are set in the published status.

By default, WordPress displays the most recent posts in this area of the page. You can assign specific categories to the blog view by navigating to Admin -> Clarion Theme -> Content -> Blog View -> Blog Category and entering (comma separated) category IDs. If the field is left blank, the most recent posts will appear.

Below, we have listed the settings of the post titled Professional Theme.

Status Published

Most of the magic takes place in the post content:
