Hi, I’d like to find a theme that gives my blog this look but cannot seem to find one. Other than getting a business plan to upload a theme like this, do you have any other suggestions to achieve this look?
The blog I need help with is theequotex.wordpress.com.
Hiya, could you please take a look at these themes and let me know if any of them are what you’re looking for?
I already have Sela theme on my current website but didn’t realize it came with this part.
Could you let me know how to make that work with my current site? Just the 3 image boxes. I can link these images to direct a user to a specific page when selected right?
Thank you for getting back so soon!
Sure, you definitely can have those images link to a specific page! You can find a lot of documentation here regarding your theme, including how to do that: https://wordpress.com/theme/sela
The part you’ll be interested is the Front-page widget areas section, and it explains how to do what you’re hoping to do step-by-step.
That being said, if you’re still running into issues whilst following that, feel free to write back here and we’ll do our best to help. :)
It doesn’t come up on my widget bar. http://tinypic.com/r/2lw5920/9
Maybe because it’s not a static page? If so is there no other way to do it?
That’s odd – I’m not seeing it either on my test site either, including when setting it as a static page. I’ve tagged staff to see if there’s a reason for this.
In the meantime though, it does appear for me on the Widgets page. Are you able to replicate the steps but on this page instead?
Theoretically, you should be able to drag a text widget into each of the three boxes on the far right (First/Second/Third Front Page) as shown in the instructions, but I’m going to be completely honest here, I’ve just tried that to no success. Let me know if that does work for you, but I’ve tagged WordPress.com staff to see if they can offer any other advice.
Okay, I see the issue. It appears you can only get those three boxes for sites with a static page, which are set to a Front Page template.
In order to set that up, you’ll need to go to https://theequotex.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=page and click “Quick Edit” on the static page, and then switch to template to Front Page. You can then switch to a static page in the “Homepage Settings” of the Customizer.
From there, you should be able to add those three boxes without any issues. Apologise about before, but let me know if that works out for you. :)
If I do that will I completely lose my current front page? I don’t think the entire static page will fit my blog well.
Hi, your front page is currently a page of your recent posts/posts page. If you set a static page, you can always have another page display your most recent posts too.
Bare in mind that apart from setting the page template as a Front Page template (which won’t have a major affect anyway), you can always preview your changes in the Customiser until you’re completely certain you’re ready to publish. Of course, either way, changes can usually be reversed too. :)
