The Continuum home page explained.

Setting up the home page

The home page of Continuum is largely widget based, with 4 regions available for placement of custom woo widgets in the sidebar and footer regions. The featured slider can be easily disabled (more information in the next “How To” section), as can the featured posts, latest posts and popular posts modules in the theme options.

See our demo’s theme option’s set here – http://woocommerce.test/demo/continuum/?options=woo.

Setup your home page under the "Homepage Layout" theme options, also enable and setup your Homepage Slider under the corresponding theme option's panel.

Setting up the featured slider

The 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.

Adding the tag to the post is important, as is specifying the image to use in the “Continuum Custom Settings” panel below the WYSIWYG editor on the Add/Edit post form.

Remember to tag your posts with your featured panel tag defined in the theme options.


Custom Continuum widgets

The theme includes 13 custom widgets that you can add to any of your 4 widgetized regions – 1 sidebar and 3 footer widgetized regions.

The custom woo widgets included are:
