Sticky posts on a Bexley-powered site get a special treatment that makes them stand out a little more. To make them stick, edit your post, and then in the Publish box press the ‘edit’ link and then tick the ‘Stick this post to the front page’.
Bexley supports thumbnail images on blog posts. These are known as featured images. To use featured images, edit the post you want to add the featured image to — and then find the box labelled ‘Featured Image’. Click the link titled ‘Set featured image’ and then either select the image or upload a new one using the options provided. Once selected, press ‘Set featured image’. Then click the “update” button to save changes to your post.
Because of Bexley’s unique design Featured Images should be kept quite large. Also keep in mind that the outer edges of the featured image may be cropped when displayed on the homepage or archive pages.
Bexley has one custom menu area available. If there is no custom menu configured then the menu will display a list of your site’s pages. To find out more about how to set up your menus, see the Custom Menu documentation.
Bexley allows you to add links to your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Tumblr accounts. To do this you must first connect these services to Publicize. Go to Settings → Sharing, and add connections to your accounts. Once connected, navigate to the Customizer, where you’ll find a new Connect panel. Select the account(s) you want to link to, and their respective icons will be displayed.
Bexley makes use of WordPress custom header functionality.
Bexley features 2 sidebars. One displays in the sidebar, and one in the footer. The other displays on the sidebar on the individual post pages. There’s information on the administration of sidebars available here.

All you have to do is edit your blog post and add the following using the text editor – replacing XXXX with the text you wish to display on the button:
