This section of the page is a standard text widget. You will need to enter the following in the main text field.

Here is a breakdown of options changes you will want to make to match the demo.

  • Switch the Box Variation option to Box 5.
  • Enter fp-mainbottom-a in the Custom Variations field.
  • Leaving everything else at its default setting, select Save.

Gantry Divider

This widget tells WordPress to start a new widget column beginning with the widget placed directly below the divider in the section.

RokSprocket

This area of the demo is a RokSprocket widget. You will need to do two things to prepare this widget so that it looks similar to the one in the demo.

First, you will need to create the RokSprocket Widget. You can do this by navigating to Administration -> RokSprocket Admin and creating a new Strips widget.

You can find out more about RokSprocket and how to set up and modify widgets by visiting our RokSprocket documentation.

Here is a look at the Strips Layout Options for this widget.

You can set the RokSprocket filters to include any category, specific articles, or otherwise you would like to have featured in this widget.

Once you have created this widget, you can add it via the Widgets menu by clicking RokSprocket and dragging it to the appropriate section. When you have done this, you will need to complete the following.

  • Select your RokSprocket Features widget in the Choose Widget field.
  • Enter Popular Features in the Title field.
  • Set the Box Variation option to Box 6.
  • Enter fp-mainbottom-b in the Custom Variations field.
  • Leaving everything else at its default setting, select Save.

The widget should now be created and ready for use on the front page of your WordPress site.
