Sticky posts on a Bromley-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’.
Bromley 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.
Bromley has one custom menu area available which is displayed at the top of the site in a floating bar. 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.
Bromley makes use of WordPress custom header functionality.
Bromley uses the WordPress integrated featured content. This involves choosing a post tag that signifies that your posts are special. When this tag is used the posts will be displayed at the top of the homepage – separate to the regular blog posts. You can set the featured tag in “Appearance → Customize → Featured Content”.
To setup the Featured Content do the following:
- Go to the following meu. Appearance → Customize → Featured Content.
- Enter a tag name for the featured posts – make sure it’s unique and isn’t used anywhere else
- Edit the posts that you want to display in the featured content space and give them the featured tag you have just selected
Bromley features 2 sidebars. One displays in the right hand sidebar and 1 displays in the footer. If you want to hide one of these then simply leave the sidebar empty and it will be removed from the site. There’s information on the administration of sidebars available here.
Disabling Fixed Header
Bromley has a fixed position header. This means that the header scrolls with the page – however not everyone likes this. If you want to disable the fixed header then you will need the custom css upgrade and add the following css.
