Crystalline: Recreating the Demo - Featured Posts

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Crystalline Theme for WordPress


Featured Posts Section

This area of the front page is the mainbody. It allows you to display featured posts on the front page. There are a couple things that have to be in order in order to see these posts populated in the MainBody section of the page.

First, you will need to have the Content option set to On in your template settings. You can find this option by navigating to Admin -> Crystalline Theme -> Advanced -> Content. You will also want to make sure that the posts you want to display are set in the published status.

By default, WordPress displays the most recent posts in this area of the page. You can assign specific categories to the blog view by navigating to Admin -> Crystalline Theme -> Content -> Blog View -> Blog Category and entering (comma separated) category IDs. If the field is left blank, the most recent posts will appear.

Below, we have listed the settings of the post titled Other Featured Stuff Continued.

Most of the magic takes place in the post content:

    <p><em>Native Right-To-Left (RTL) Support for both Gantry and independent theme elements such as module styling.</em></p>
    <p>The Gantry grid system will automatically invert the placement of module positions inside a given row when RTL mode is detected from WordPress. The template is prebuilt with CSS styles and Images that are peculiar to RTL.</p>
