Feature the content that matters the most to you and your readers with Hero’s dark, minimal design, and Front Page template.
Front Page Template
Hero’s Front Page template is designed to be the home page of your site, sending readers to the information you think is most important.
Featured Content Slider: Use the ‘Featured Content’ options under Settings → Reading to select a tag for your featured content slider. Use this tag on posts with a featured image, and they’ll show up in the slider.
Tagline Area: Under ‘Home Promos’ in the Customizer, set a Tagline and select a page from the dropdown list for the Tagline link.
Promotional Callouts: Under ‘Home Promos’ in the Customizer, choose a tag name from the dropdowns for the promo areas. Tag posts with these tags to have them show up in the three callout areas.
Full-Width Page Template
If you would like to remove the sidebar from a page for a cleaner, full-width look, assign your page the Full Width template under Page Attributes.
Hero includes a primary sidebar widget area and four footer widget areas that can be customized in Appearance → Widgets.
Set up a custom navigation menu that will appear in the header’s custom menu area by going to Appearance → Menus.
