Featured Content

With Wanderer, you can feature posts tagged with a certain tag (like ‘featured’), and they will show at the very bottom of the single post view (example). This area is a slider, with three posts showing at a time. To add featured content follow these steps:

  1. After logging into your WordPress admin, navigate to Appearance > Customize > Featured Content
  2. Enter the name of the tag you would like to feature in the ‘Tag Name’ text field. You can use the recommended ‘featured’ tag, or one of your choosing
  3. From here, decide if you want to ‘hide tag from displaying in post meta and tag clouds’, and ‘Display tag content in all listings’ then save, and exit the customer. Please note that if you disable the ‘Display tag content in all listings’ option, then the tag of posts you choose to feature will not show on the homepage.
  4. View any single post, and you should now see your featured content area.
  5. Note: The image you see in the Featured Content slider is the feature image assigned to your posts. If you do not assign a featured image, a black title over white background will show instead.featured-content
