Howdy! This theme, Forever, is now retired.
Forever Setup Guide
If prefer to keep Forever active on an older site and are looking for the setup guide, instructions are below.
Featuring posts in a slider on your home page is easy. You just need sticky posts with Featured Images. Every sticky post you have (up to 10) that has a Featured Image that’s at least 888 pixels wide will be displayed in the slider.
On the home page, posts with Featured Images assigned will display with the excerpt, whereas posts without Featured Images will display the full content. You can always shorten full-content posts using the More Tag.
Latest Posts Grid
To display your four latest posts in a neat grid on the blog page – with a Featured Image above each one, if you’ve included it when creating the post – visit your WP Admin dashboard at Appearance → Theme Options and click the checkbox there.
Forever will also display your latest Quote or Status post in the footer of your blog. You can read more about how to do that on our Post Formats page.
Save the date!
Forever also sports a custom design for the Milestone widget. Just pick a title for your event, a date and time, and a special message for the big day, and you’re ready to go. Now you have a special save the date widget for your Wedding on every page of your blog.
We also built in a special Guestbook Template that lets your guests take over a page of your choice with their best wishes for you … and maybe a few embarrassing stories … as comments. Assign the Guestbook template to a static page to see it in action.
