Main Collection

The most important post collection on your site. Everyone will go through it during first visit on your site.

Setup

To customize homepage main collection, please follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to the WordPress Admin › Appearance › Customize panel
  2. Switch to the Home › Main Collection section
  3. Set:
    • Title. You can hide it entirely
    • Template
    • Entries per page
    • Pagination type (prev/next pages, load more, infinite scroll)
    • Element visibility
  4. Decide if ad/newsletter should be automatically injected as collection items

Auto-injection

Auto-injection gives you option to blend your regular posts with ads and newsletters (see the screen above). These "special" items are to encourage your users to action, in an unobtrusive way.

For each item type you have to choose where to place the first item (Inject at position field) and after how many items repeat injection (Repeat after each X positions field, leave empty to not repeat). Please don't set up repetitions to e.g. 1. This can break counters and end up with unexpected behaviours. Best if you inject each type just once on a page. You don't want to distract your users with so many "no post" items.

Example

  • Newsletter - inject at position 2, repeat 11 (if you have 12 items per page, 11 value will keep injection in the same position on all next pages)
  • Ad - inject at position 5, repeat 11

Auto-injected newsletter

To use this option, you need a plugin that handles newsletter subscription process for you. We recommend the MailChimp for WordPress plugin. After theme activation you should be asked to install it or you can do that later via the WordPress Admin › Appearance › Install Plugins page.

Auto-injected ad

To use this option you need a plugin for ads. The theme is delivered with our AdAce plugin. After theme activation you should be asked to install it or you can do that later via the WordPress Admin › Appearance › Install Plugins page.
