Home: Featured Posts

  • The “Featured Posts” are displayed by tags, the post needs to have the tag “featured“.
  • First make sure that you’ve added properly the tag “featured” so make a test to see if the tag added exists: like this http://yoursite.com/tag/featured/
  • If will show “featured-2” is because a category with the same name “featured” was created, if that’s the case you’ll need to delete both and after that create again the tag “featured” or you can change the tag like “mypost”, “postslider” etc. to do that, open header.php file line 80 and you’ll see this:
    <?php  query_posts( array( 'post_type' => 'post', 'tag' => 'featured', 'posts_per_page' => $smof_data['featured-posts'] ) );  ?> 
  • Now change the tag “featured” with a different tag, save the files and upload them via FTP.
  • The Number of posts can be changed via Theme Options > Header Settings > Featured Posts.

Display the Featured Post – Slider

  • Create a new page and from “Page Attributes” choose “Template – Home.”.
  • Dashboard > Posts > Add New, add the tag “featured”
  • Now go to the bottom and you’ll see the “Featured Article – Slider” option:
  • Select or Upload 1 Image, recomendable size: 800×550, and that’s it, but if you want to change the Title, you can add a different title in the “Slider Title”, to have the text bold, just use the tag “span”, like this:
    Audi's <span>Sochi Ad</span> Is Great. Too Bad <span>It's Probably</span> Fake.

    Simple text

    Audi's Sochi Ad Is Great. Too Bad It's Probably Fake.

    Bold text

    <span>Audi's Sochi Ad Is Great. Too Bad It's Probably Fake.</span>

    So you need to use it like this:

    <span> bold text here </span>
  • Click “Publish” and that’s it.
  • Next, read the steps from – > Home Page
