Post Options in Blade

To create a Post, go to:

  1. Posts > Add New
  2. Add a title
  3. Add some content
  4. Add categories and some tags

Blade supports 6 custom post formats. These are: Standard, Gallery, Link, Quote, Video and Audio Post Format.
You can simply choose the post format you need and follow the detailed instructions in the appeared meta box below the TinyMCE editor. For example: If you select the Gallery Post Format, one box called “Gallery Format Options” will appear to add your images. Furthermore, you can set up the classic options in the organized into tabs section, just like in page options, under the ‘Post Options’ section.

In case you use Standard post format (the most common post format), just upload a featured image via the WordPress classic meta box (at the lower right corner).

Post Options

Here you can set everything you need (just like in Page Options) apart from the content of the posts (you can still use the awesome Page Builder for this). So, you will find the following, organized into tabs, sections:

  1. Header/Main Menu
  2. Title/Description
  3. Layouts/Sidebars
  4. Sliding Area
  5. Extras
  6. Visibility

With these options, you can override any options you have set in Theme Options > Post Options. This means that you can handle individually each one of your pages. We really believe that everyone MUST especially explore the Title/Description tab 🙂

Keep in mind that “Inherit” means that the settings from the options panel of Blade(Theme Options > Post Options) will occur.

Feature Section

Last but not least, you can use the Feature Section in your single posts just like in pages.
Blade gives you the chance to add one of four following special elements. You can select among:

  1. Title
  2. Image
  3. Slider (on the fly creation)
  4. Video
  5. Google Map

Follow the guidelines to set up the Feature Element of your choice. In addition, it’s worth trying your site’s Header under the Feature section in any post you like. This way you can create posts of totally different style.
Finally, you can define the height of your feature section. Choose a full-width section or specify the height you prefer in pixels. In general, you are able to add various Effects in the Feature section elements.

You can enable/disable the Feature Section for each one of the custom post types (Pages, Posts, Portfolio Items) in Theme Options > Miscellaneous > Feature Section Post Types.
