If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I am wanting to have the four columns on the front page like in the static homepage demo. I was wondering how to use these and if i could get them to cycle my recent post like a side bar widget would? I would also like for them to have a few lines from the post and the ability to click and go the the original post.
Is this done with short codes? if so where do i get them and how do i install them.
If this is something that isn’t possible please let me know and i will figure out something else to use there.
it’s currently not possible to use widgets with the column shortcode. You can create a static frontpage like in the demo – go to settings > Reading and select a static page there (i.e. the page with for columns). The column shortcode can be used like:
Lorem, ultricies nec, pellentesque eu, pretium quis, sem. Nulla consequat massa quis enim. Donec pede justo, fringilla.
Tenean commodo ligula eget dolor. Aenean massa. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturients mus.
Sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor. Aenean massa. Cum sociis natoques.
You can use text and html content only but no widgets.
