    Hi,

    This should be a very simple task but I cannot find the right info so am asking for help.

    I have a static Home page with Posts Slider. I’d like to add a section underneath the slider for Featured Posts, which will show 3 or 4 selected posts (excerpt text and small featured image). I know this can be done with Content Boxes using the Custom Front Page Builder but unfortunately I cannot find info on how to add posts. I can see how to change fonts, colours, etc.

    Went through the documentation but the explanation is very vague. YouTube videos are old and do not show how to do this in the new version.

    Can I please get help with this? Thanks!

    (EDIT: I’m not an expert in any way so will appreciate a simple step-by-step or a link to a guide…)

    Dear Yuval, content boxes aren’t intended to show blog posts. Content boxes are just what they are. Maybe a Post Slider would serve you better? Here: https://theme4press.com/guide/docs/widget-box-custom-widgets/posts-slider/

    Thank you for your reply.

    As explained in my original post I already have a post slider. What I would like to have is a section underneath the slider which will display 3 or 4 “featured posts”, in a similar way the Evolve “Blog 1” template does (but only one row, rather than multiple rows the “Blog 1” template has).

    Here is a sample from the Evolve Demos: https://imgur.com/a/9corBv8

    How can I achieve this?

    Thanks!

    Blog 1 is using posts page as home page. This is how it is achieved there. Our way is a post slider, but since you’re using it already (sorry, I missed it), then that’s that, unfortunately

    Is there any way that I can apply a different colour/background, font colour to each individual content box. Can you show me how to do this?

    Hiya, I had tried that but it does not work. I get the same for both boxes regardles of what I had set individually.

    Yes, it appears that there is a problem. We are looking into a solution.
