Post Title
Post title section

The Post Title section offers you the necessary options that are needed to configure the hero section of your singular blog post page. It offers two great design choices, which will help you get the layout just right.

Type 1 look
Type 2 look

Type 1 is a classic look, that goes great when displaying relevant information about your post, while Type 2 has a full bleed layout that goes great with the transparent header.

Each design has a few layers of information that can be controlled from the Elements section.

  • Title – Shows the title of your blog post.
  • Excerpt – Shows the description excerpt that you have set for the blog post.
  • Breadcrumbs – Our quick navigation system is ready for duty.
  • Post Meta – Here you can select what meta information attributes are shown, such as date published, author and more.
Post Structure
Single post layout options

First up, we have the general structure of your posts. We offer three design choices, which go great with the latest design trends.

The Narrow layout lets you compact the information shown on screen.
The Left Sidebar position.
The Normal layout is classic, where the content spans the width of the main site container.
The Right Sidebar position.
Content Area Style

The Content Area Style option is super nice. It lets you encapsulate your whole content into a Boxed area, or let it breathe using the Wide option.

The Wide option. Notice how the page is simple.
The Boxed layout. Notice how the content is encapsulated.
Content Area Vertical Spacing

The Content Area Vertical Spacing option is very interesting. It lets you specify the distance between the content of your page and the header and footer. It comes in really handy, especially if you’re using the transparent header functionality.

The spacing value can be easily controlled via the Customiser -> General -> Layout -> Content Area Spacing section.

Post & Page Elements
The Posts & Page Elements section

These sections are easy to understand and manage. WordPress offers various elements that are part of the core software experience. Let’s note them down and see what they do.

The Featured Image element helps you display the blog post featured image as a separate layer on the page.
The Share Box element will let your visitors easily share the article through their favourite social networks.
The Posts Navigation box enables your visitors to quickly check out the other articles published on your website in chronological order.
We shouldn’t comment on the Comments box that much. It lets you offer the option for healthy discussions in each of your posts. The engagement rates should increase once you add the comments box onto the page.
The Post Tags element will let you display the tags you’ve assigned to the respective post.
The Author Box element lets you display the author’s contact info. It also supports linking their social accounts.
The Related Posts section will let you showcase the posts that are closely related in subject to the one that your visitors are currently reading. There are a lot of customisation options available, so dive right in!
