Recommended Posts

Do you have a link to your website? (most commonly asked question on this forum ;-) )

Here's the PageLines Video that discusses this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7maqSTtaGI&feature=related Concisely, what you see is the default setup. You are viewing your site "out of the box" with the blog posts page as the home. If you goal is to have the Feature slider and boxes appear before your blog posts page main loop conent, then you will want to drag the Features and Boxes above the Content section box in the Template Setup>Posts Pages. Now, if that is not your goal then you will need to do the following to create a typical static homepage using the Feature slider and Boxes on the home page without the posts excerpts. 1. Create a New Page and title it Home and choose the Feature Page Template on the right. 2. Create a New Page and title it Blog and choose the default template on the right. 3. Go to the WP Settings>Reading and change the setting to static homepage and select Home from the drop down menu. Choose Blog for the posts page from the drop down. 4. Now in Appearance>Menus create a menu called Primary. 5. Add the Home and Blog to the menu and then drag to the order you desire. This is the order it will be on your site. Now save and then on the top left assign the PageLines Primary menu to the Primary menu in the drop down menu. That should do it. Now when you go to your site your homepage will have the Feature Slider, Boxes, and the Home page content below. The Blog page will have the post excerpts in your default layout mode. FYI: this is only one example of how to create a homepage. With PageLines Platform Pro anything is possible, but this is what I was imagining you are trying to do from your description above.
