Vision 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.
Vision 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.
Vision makes use of WordPress custom header functionality. This header will appear behind your website title and navigation. It’s recommended to make a wide banner that will fill the full width of the screen.
Vision uses the WordPress integrated featured content to display posts in a homepage slider. 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 menu. 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
Vision has 2 sidebars. One displays in the sidebar on blog posts and pages, and one in the footer. Removing widgets from the sidebars in the widget editor will hide the sidebar. There’s information on the administration of sidebars available here.
