Page Showcase

To set up the page showcase layout as shown in the demo, please follow the steps below:

  1. Create a new page or edit an existing page that will be used as the Showcase. Then select the “Page Showcase Template” (found in the right column in your editor window).
  2. You’ll can also choose a layout for this template. There’s four options: Single Column, Single Column Narrow, Sidebar Right, or Sidebar Left. If you want to use a specific layout, go ahead and select this (also in the right column of the editor window). Then click save.
  3. If you want the Showcase to appear on your home page, go to your Dashboard and under Settings > Reading, set the page from step 1 as your “Front Page”. If you’re using the Page Showcase on the home page and would still would like to have a blog displayed separately, create a blank page called “Blog” or something similar and select that as “Posts Page” under Front Page.
  4. To select which pages show on the showcase page, go to your Dashboard and under Appearance > Customize look for the “Page Showcase” options. You can set up to 5 pages.
  5. If you are using on the of the single column layouts, select 4 pages to display. If you’re displaying a sidebar, you can choose 3 or 5.
