Featured Content Section
Give special attention to selected posts by adding them to the featured content section. It will display a maximum of six posts in a grid on your site’s front page.
To enable this section:
- Navigate to Settings → Reading.
- Scroll down to the section labeled “Featured Content”.
- Enter the name of a tag.
- Click the blue “Save Changes” button at the bottom.
Once a tag name has been saved, posts having this tag will appear in the featured content section. You can specify an image to be displayed with each post by setting a Featured Images.
To get the most of this theme, setting Featured Images is important.
The standard format article displays them beautifully to grab your readers attention. The featured image works best with images at least 672px wide.
With a carefully chosen spacing, typography, column width and colors it maximizes the readers experience enhancing the content with a beautiful design.
You can also dress up your posts by pulling blockquotes into the margins with a class of “pull” and “alignleft” or “alignright”. Here are some examples of how to do that in the post HTML editor.
<blockquote class="pull alignleft">A bolder blockquote that floats into the left margin</blockquote> <blockquote class="pull alignright">A bolder blockquote that floats into the right margin</blockquote>
Further supports the following post formats: Standard, Aside, Image, Video, Quote, Link, and Gallery. On your site’s front page, the theme displays the two latest posts from each format in the right sidebar.
From the Customizer, you can add a link to your email, as well as links to your profiles on Twitter, Facebook, Pintrest, Google+, LinkedIn, Flickr, GitHub, Dribbble, Vimeo, and YouTube in the header.
When Further is viewed in a window larger than 770px wide, the header that contains a navigation, search, and social media buttons sticks at the very top of the page. This enhances the reader experience. They can access your menu at anytime without having to scroll.
Love widgets? No problem! Further offers seven widget areas:
The Primary Sidebar appears on the left and displays categories and archives by default. The Content Sidebar is an additional sidebar that appears on the right, on single posts and pages. It displays search, links, and meta by default if no widgets are configured in Appearance → Widgets.
The five Footer Widget areas are optional and will display only when configured.

- The Primary Menu appears on the top of the site.
- The Secondary Menu appears in the left sidebar.

You can customize background in Appearance → Background for large screen. Your custom background is only visible to readers viewing your site on screen larger than 1260px wide.
Full-Width Page Template
If you would like to remove the content sidebar from a page to utilize the space fully, assign your page the Full Width template under Page Attributes.
