Sprinkle Pro - Home Page Setup
If this is a brand new site, please begin with the Quick Start Guide.
Home Page at a Glance
Note: If you are building a new site and have gone through the Widget Import step, these widgets will already be in place. We do recommend that you go through this tutorial to become familiar with the placement, format and capabilities of these widgets.
The home page is comprised of 4 widget areas:
- Home Slider / Video
- Home CTA (Call to Action)
- Home Flexible
- Home Featured
These widget areas can be found by navigating to Appearance > Widgets.
Here is an overview of the Home Page widget areas and what widgets can go in them.
Home Slider / Video
The Home Slider / Video widget area has three options for customization:
- Single Image
For detailed instructions on setting up this widget space, see this tutorial: SPRINKLE PRO HOME SLIDER / VIDEO SETTINGS TUTORIAL.
The Home CTA widget appears at the top right next to the slider/video widget area. This space is ideal for a call-to-action, such as a newsletter subscription, as shown in the demo.
More information on setting up the Genesis eNews Extended widget can be found HERE.
The Home Flexible widget area displays full-width below the slider/video and Home CTA. This space is flexible depending on the number of widgets you want to appear. The demo displays three Genesis - Featured Page widgets, as shown below.
For each page featured, create/edit a page and upload a featured image to that page on the right column. Then return to Appearance > Widgets, click on the widget to edit and select the page to display.
Here is a chart of how the widgets will format based on the number of widgets placed.
The Home Featured widget area appears directly below the Home Flexible area and above the Latest from the Blog area. This space is ideal for featuring categories, blog posts, or shop items. In the demo we have have displayed featured products as well as featured posts from a category. Items will display in rows of four.
