Categories on front page

By Tristan, 3 years ago. Last reply by Tristan, 3 years ago.

Hey guys,

I need a little bit of help with the Focus theme. I want to customize the front-page in a way that it publishes the different categories + related video’s in the same way as it now publishes the “Latest Videos”

Can anybody help me out?

Cheers,

Tristan

    Hi Tristan,

    To do this you’ll want to create a custom home page and make use of the Post Loop widget. Firstly, please navigate to WP Admin > Pages > Add New. This page will be your new homepage, please name and save it. Then please navigate to WP Admin > Settings > Reading and set Front Page Displays setting to A static page. Then set Front Page to your newly created home page. Once you’ve done that, please navigate to your home page and open it in the editor. Please refer to this article for a guide on how to use the post loop widget in Focus.

    There’s no limit on how many instances of the post loop widget you can have so you can effectively replicate the typical archive in Focus and expand upon it quite easily! :)

    Awesome man, thanks, I should’ve digged more into the widgets ;)
