Refined - Custom Blog Page Template

Not only does the Refined theme have the  default blog page template where you can control your own image sizes with the Genesis Theme Settings, but we’ve specifically created a Custom Blog Page template that is a little fancier!

Creating the Custom blog page

  • Navigate to  Pages > Add New
  • Give your new page a name - something like Blog would be perfect. 
  • On the right under the Page Attributes panel, you’ll see the Template drop down.

  • Select Custom Blog from the drop down. 
  • Publish the page. 

Setting up the 3 featured posts at the top of the page

To set the three featured image spaces at the top of the Custom Blog page, navigate to Appearance > Widgets.

Drag and drop a Text Widget and three Genesis Featured Posts widgets to the Above Blog Content Widget area, as shown below.

The Text Widget is left blank for placement purposes. An example of the settings for each of the Genesis Featured Posts widgets is shown below.
