I’m sorry I just don’t understand something. I’m new with page creating, i’ve got wordpress page before but all settings were done by someone else before i start work with it. So now i’m creating new page by myself. I’m comparing this both pages settings, but themes are different, so i’ve got some very simple basic problems. I want to make 3 column on from page, which is gonna be my 3 latest posts. It’s sounds so stupid, because it’s what is displayed on Ultra theme front page and i can’t figure out how to do that 🙁 i’m really struggling.February 11, 2016 at 7:44 pm #3033
Thanks for reaching out.
The easiest solution here would be to go to
Settings > Readingand select
Font page displays > Your latest posts. Next, go to
Appearance > Theme Settingsand locate the setting labelled
Blog Archive Layout. Ultra offers a regular Blog layout as well as a left aligned featured image or a left aligned thumbnail featured image. Unfortunately, Ultra doesn’t currently offer a three column blog archive layout.
Another option would be to go to
Appearance > Home Pagewhich is a static home page shortcut. Turn that option
ONand manage the page using the SiteOrigin Page Builder interface. There you can build a layout as required. To add blog posts you can add a Post Loop widget and choose the one of the above-mentioned layouts from the
Templatedrop down menu within the widget.
Let me know how you come along 🙂February 11, 2016 at 8:06 pm #3034
So I’m trying Appearance> Home page, adding widget and i’m trying to choose layout from templates but it’s not working, I’m clicking on USE button but nothing. http://layouts.siteorigin.com/layout/minimal/February 11, 2016 at 8:08 pm #3035
Ok, so you’re looking at using a SiteOrigin Page Builder Prebuilt Layout on the home page. To confirm, that won’t display your posts, it’s a static layout.
The Layouts Directory is a relatively new SiteOrigin Page Builder feature. Let me take a look at what might be going wrong there.February 11, 2016 at 8:10 pm #3036
Ok, thanks Andrew!February 11, 2016 at 8:13 pm #3037
Useyou should receive a popup notification that reads:
Are you sure you want to overwrite your current content? This can be undone in the builder history.
Once you’ve accepted a loading icon will appear at the bottom of the window while the layout loads, you should then be redirected back to Page Builder.
It’s working nicely on my local install. If you try again and the layout still isn’t being applied you might try a plugin conflict test. Temporarily deactivate all plugins not made by SiteOrigin and try again, if the layout works you’d then need to reactivate your plugins one by one, running a test of the problem after each activation. I cover the plugin conflict test here:February 11, 2016 at 8:14 pm #3038
Before trying the plugin conflict test, try to apply the layout again. It makes an external request to Google App Engine so it’s possible your local connection timed out.February 11, 2016 at 8:32 pm #3039
I tried plugin conflict test, still not working.February 11, 2016 at 9:06 pm #3040
To completely rule out conflicts you can try testing with all non-SiteOrigin plugins deactivated AND a default WordPress theme activated, I usually test with Twenty Sixteen. That’ll rule out plugin and theme conflicts. You can test Page Builder prebuilt layouts on any page by clicking on the Page Builder tab next to Visual and Text and then Prebuilt.February 11, 2016 at 9:41 pm #3041
I changed themes few times then came back to Ultra, installed Widgets Bundle, layout start to work then i mess a little bit with layout and choose again Default Home layout. Sooo and now i see exactly what i wanted to see on the Home page, 3 text column with 3 blue circle above. I don’t know what i did wrong before… but now it’s working 🙂 One problem is solved! Even Meta slider started to work, it’s like a Christmas miracle 🙂February 12, 2016 at 8:59 pm #3045
Fantastic 🙂 Really glad to hear it.
All the best with your website.February 12, 2016 at 9:15 pm #3048
