Polestar Demo Home Page

If you’d like to re-create a home page similar to the Polestar demo, you’re welcome to use the demo home page as a starting point.

1. Ensure Page Builder by SiteOrigin, the SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle and Livemesh Widgets plugins are installed and activated. If you’d like to make use of the Classic Editor interface also ensure the Classic Editor plugin is installed and activated.

2. Go to Pages, edit the page you’d like to use, and click on the Page Builder tab next to the Visual and Text tabs. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to use the Block Editor, insert a SiteOrigin Layout Block.

3. Within Page Builder, click the Layouts button. The layouts window will open on Theme Defined layouts, click the Home layout, and then the Insert button (bottom right).

If a widget shows as missing in the layout and the above two plugins are installed, go to PluginsSiteOrigin Widgets and ensure that the missing widget is enabled.

Page Settings

The demo home page prebuilt layout unfortunately won’t adjust your page settings to the required states. To set your page up like the demo home page, locate the Page Settings meta box in the right column when editing the page and adjust your settings as follows:

Page Layout: Set to No Sidebar.
Header Overlap: Set to Enabled – Light Text.
Header Bottom Margin: Disable.
Footer Top Margin: Disable.

If you have any questions about Polestar, Page Builder by SiteOrigin and prebuilt layouts, please, open a support topic on the Polestar forum. Polestar Premium users are welcome to reach out via email for support queries.
