The Delicious home page layout explained

The home page of Delicious Magazine is largely widget based, with 4 regions available for placement of custom woo widgets in the footer and 1 sidebar regions. Place widgets in this region under “Appearance > Widgets”, follow the documentation on placing widgets below under the corresponding documentation.

The featured slider and sub-featured section (in our demo being the “Spotlight” section) can easily be disabled (more information in the next “How To” section) in the theme settings.

Setting up the featured Panel ↑ Back to top

The unique home page featured slider can be used to display noteworthy blog posts – this is because it is tag based. Once you have specified the tag it must loop through to display posts, make sure you add that tag to the blog posts you want to feature. It will display the title of the post, the excerpt, and the optional, but important, custom image which is the focal point of the panel. The slider is fixed to display 3 featured posts.

To setup the Featured Panel:

  1. Go to Delicious Magazine > Settings > Featured Panel
  2. Click Enable Featured
  3. Add a Featured Tag which you’ll use on the posts to show in the slider
