Fairchild: Homepage and Blog


Set up the Home/Blog page

First, you have to import the custom pages. Then you can just open the pages in the editor and start replacing the demo information with your own.

The blog in the Fairchild theme is on the homepage, not a separate page.

To edit the widgets on the homepage, go to Appearance > Widgets > expand Front Page 1 and start editing.

* You can easily rearrange and copy/paste sections from one page to another (or to a widget area). Learn how to do that here.


Separate the Home and Blog pages

In case you want to separate the Home and Blog pages, the theme has a Homepage page with the same design minus the blog, but with a latest posts section. To edit it, go to your WordPress dashboard > Pages > open the Homepage page in the editor.

  1. Go to your WordPress dashboard > Settings > Reading
  2. Check A static page (select below) for Your homepage displays
  3. Select the Homepage page from the Homepage dropdown
  4. Select the Blog page from the Posts page dropdown
