How to get the homepage like the demo screenshot

If you like the homepage style in the demo screenshot which is different from the default recent posts list, you can easily follow these steps:

1. Create a page for the homepage. The content of this page will disappear on the top side. Select “Homepage” for the template on the right side of the page editing page.

2. In “Settings->Reading” in WordPress’s control panel, select “A static page” in the “Front page displays” section. Select the page you have created in step 1 for the “front page”.

3. The “Featured posts” part in the homepage requires “WordPress Popular Posts” plugin. After install this plugin, the “Featured posts” will appear.

The top part of the right sidebar is actually a “Text widget” which can be designed by yourself.

  1. 兄台,想请教一下,如何才能把这个主题设置的如同你的DEMO图片一样?


  2. @jackfans

    主页设置为使用一个Page页面. 先增加一个page, 在右边模板的地方选择Homepage. 自己写的内容会出现在最上面. “Recent posts”自动产生.
    Featured posts 部分是使用”WordPress Popular Posts”插件得到的. 安装这个插件后这部分就会出现了.

    右侧边栏上方的部分是一个text框, 内容是自己加的.
    分享是使用的 addthis.com 的.
    搜索框是使用的google custom search.

  3. Thanks a lot !!!


    By the way , I also use “ercik” for my niche name for years !

    1. Hi,

      If you want to change the (which appears in the browser’s window/tab title bar), you can simply edit the header.php file if you know a little about PHP. Find these code:

      if (is_category()) {
          _e('Topic: ');
      } else if (is_tag()) {
          _e('Tag: ');
      } else if (is_home()) {
      $pageNumber = get_query_var('paged');
      $pageNumber = $pageNumber ? $pageNumber : 1;
      if ($pageNumber && $pageNumber > 1) {
          wp_title('', true, 'right');
          _e(' - ');
          _e(' | ');
      } else {
          wp_title('|', true, 'right');

      and you can change it to whatever you like.

      If you just want to make the other plugins change the title, you may try to change these code to:

          wp_title('', true, 'right');
