Top Section

Gantry Logo
Gantry Links

Here is the widget breakdown for the Top section:

  • Gantry Logo
  • Gantry Divider
  • Gantry Links
  • Gantry Divider
  • Text

Gantry Logo

The first thing you will need to do is click and drag the Gantry Logo widget from the Available Widgets area of the Widgets menu to the appropriate section. Once this is done, the logo should appear in the upper-left area of the front page as it does in the demo. You can further customize this logo by following the instructions in our FAQ.

In this instance, the Per Style Logo options is selected.

Gantry Divider

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

Gantry Links

The Gantry Links widget is used to display links in a way that works natively with the Gantry framework. It is a great alternative to the default WordPress blogroll widget. Links are controlled via the native Links feature in WordPress. You will find the options used in our demo below.
