    I Cannot figure out how to do this. Documentation is no help. I followed instructions and the featured news does not appear below the primary header. Please Advise

    Hello,

    For Featured News, there are options in Customizer. Go to Theme Options -> Featured News. Set appropriate settings there. Note that, featured news section only displays in static front page. Check here regarding setting static front page. https://code.tutsplus.com/articles/the-beginners-guide-to-setting-static-front-pages-in-wordpress–wp-34527
    Let us know if any queries.

    Thanks

    Hello.

    I myself can’t seem to follow this.

    I would like to have my theme layout exactly how you present it on the images on the doucmentation.

    Are you able to provide a video tutorial on how to set up the theme as you have it on your images in the documentation / website please.

    I’m using this theme as a blog as a whole, news, new products, reviews etc etc

    Thanks

    Hello,

    To display featured news and home widget area, you need to first set static front page. Here is one good link for setting static front page. But I would also try to explain the process here. https://code.tutsplus.com/articles/the-beginners-guide-to-setting-static-front-pages-in-wordpress–wp-34527

    * Create two pages named, Front Page and Blog
    * Go to Settings -> Reading
    * Choose A Static Page in Front page displays
    * In Front Page:, choose page named Front Page you just created.
    * In Posts Page:, choose page named Blog.
    * Now, go to Appearance -> Widgets. Put desired widgets in Front Page Widget Area.
    * For Featured News: go to Appearance -> Customizer -> Featured News. Choose your settings from there.

    We are in the process in improving our documentation. It will be updated soon in near future. Let us know if you have any other queries.

    Regards

    Hi there,

    Is there a way that in ‘featured news’, under grid option, that the larger first image can have the date and comments bubble removed?

    I’m very very new to WordPress, so any help would be fantastic.

    Thank you.

    Hello @ejscott10

    Thank you for using our theme, Here is a quick CSS fixing for you to remove the metadata. Just go to the customizer -> Additional CSS section and add following CSS.

    .featured-news-meta.entry-meta {
        display: none !important;
    }

    Hope this solves your problem.

    Regards
