Feature the content that matters the most to you and your readers with Hero‘s dark, minimal design, and Front Page template.

Front Page Template

Hero‘s Front Page template is designed to be the home page of your site, sending readers to the information you think is most important.

To get started, create a new page and assign it the Front Page template under Page Options. Then set that page to be your Static Front Page.

Featured Content Slider: Add a tag under Customize → Featured Content. Use this tag on posts with a featured image, and they’ll show up in the slider.

Tagline Area: Under Home Promos in the Customizer, set a Tagline and select a page from the dropdown list for the Tagline link.

Promotional Callouts: Assign a different tag name to each of the three posts you wish to display in the callout areas. Next, navigate to Customizer → Home Promos panel and choose the assigned tag names from the Promo dropdown menus.


Full-Width Page Template

If you would like to remove the sidebar from a page for a cleaner, full-width look, assign your page the Full Width template under Page Options.


Hero includes a primary sidebar widget area and four footer widget areas that can be customized in Customize → Widgets.

Custom Menu

Set up a custom navigation menu that will appear in the header’s custom menu area by going to Menus.

Custom Header and Background
