Using Custom Front Page Template

Front Page

As the name suggests, this template is perfect for the front page where you can introduce your business to the world. Rich, powerful, and flexible, the front page template includes a big image with text, two columns child pages, optional widget area and a right sidebar. (See the image above.)

When you first activate Healthy Living, you’ll see your posts in a traditional blog format but if you’d like to use this template as a front page of your site, here are the instructions.

  1. Create or edit a page, and assign it to the Front Page template from the Page Options module.
  2. Add an introduction to your site. For best results, we’d recommend a couple of paragraphs.
  3. The image behind this text is added as a featured image of the page. Learn more about adding featured images.

  4. Go to Customizer → Static Front Page and set “Front page display” to “A static page”. Learn more about setting up a front page.
  5. Select the page you just assigned the Front Page template to as “Front page” and then choose another page as “Posts page” to serve your blog posts.

Two-Column Child Pages

This template shows all child pages of the front page in the two column grid (See the image above.). Inside the live preview we have two child pages of the front page (“Welcome to Healthy Living” and “My Recipe Book”) but you are free to add more child pages.

  2. Add content inside the editor.
