    I’m trying to get the categories with icons and feature listings to display on my front page.

    1. I have used the [CATEGORIES] short code, and get the text to display but without any icons…
    2. How do I get featured listings to display on the front page?

    Thank you for your help

    @ Remy,

    Have you tried using Appearance>Widgets?

    Then drag and drop ‘categories’ into section bar that your using and your done.

    Yes. The theme only ave right/left and footer placements, so cannot use widget. Want it in the middle of the page

    @ Remy,

    Ah, I see….easy…..

    1) Page Setup > HomePage

    2) Click on ‘Display Setup’

    3) Look in ‘Content Elements’

    4) Drag and drop ‘Categories’ widget over to right hand side,

    5) Save

    6) Go back and click ‘Categories widget on ‘right hand side’

    7) Setup display and save

    Done!

    Hi

    Thank you, but I have tried that. When I move objects from left to right, nothing is changing on my site… (see image)

    Never mind.. I think I go with the demo theme.
    But how do I change the image carousel on the front page to only display featured listings?

    Thanks

    @ Remey,

    That’s because you now need to ‘change/set’ the elements ‘within’ the categories and then hit the save button.

    Image is the same principle for the carousel 😉

    Then you will see both work on home page

    Thanks. Got it to work 🙂

    Looks like you know this theme good.
    I have added the category images on my site. I want the text to display under the image. Therefore I use “Top display (large)”, since this is the only one doing this. But Is it possible to get the image smaller and have 4 categories in a row instead of 3? Or anyone know witch file to edit to get this done?

    Thanks

    @ Remey,

    Like many, I too still on the learning curve 😉

    You set text for images > Listing Manager > Categories .

    Image Size :

    Page Setup > HomePage

    Click on ‘Categories’ set images as ‘Medium’

    Horoscope <<< I am not sure if this helps, but I use a plugin on this site to associate categories with each category, then I add a bit of php to the page that controls list pages.. In theory this could be shown on homepage if I reverted it to blog view.. The 12 categories are the star signs here.. Let me know if this helps and I will tell you plugins to use.. You just then need to hook it up in scripts..

    Thanks Leon.
    I think this is to advanced for me. I think I only need to know witch file to edit to get the images smaller and place 5 images in one row.

    show me a link to the page, css can change image sizes.. You know the one on the profile page for customers, that was set to 200px, a quick bit of css and it was changed to 100px square.. I don’t know why it was so big it looked ugly it was bigger than box it was in..

    Hi Leon

    The site is not up. Have not added the categories images. Still trying to find out how to make them smaller… Frustrating 🙂
