Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Ricochet Theme for WordPress
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 option set to On in your template settings. You can find this option by navigating to Admin -> Ricochet 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 -> Ricochet Theme -> Content -> Blog View -> Blog Category and entering (comma separated) category IDs. If the field is left blank, the most recent posts will appear.

The settings used to create the layout of this area of the page can be found in Admin > Ricochet Theme > Content > Blog View. This is where the Blog Category is set, telling WordPress which category to place on the front page. The Post Count sets the amount of posts showed. The Leading Posts sets the amount of posts that are shown in larger, single column layouts, ahead of the two-column post display for the others.
