Clover - Single Posts

Single posts are the individual blog post pages on your site (example). In the Clover theme, there are several sections available to you that can be displayed on single posts.

Featured Image

By default, the featured image you set for each post will not display on the single post pages. To add the featured image to the top of your single posts, go to Genesis > Theme Settings > Singular Content. Check the "Show Featured Images on Posts" box.

Sharing Buttons

These buttons are shown here in the demo. To add social sharing buttons to your blog posts:

  1. Create a new post or edit an existing post.
  2. At the top left corner of the post editor, click the blue + icon.
  3. Search "Sharing" and click on the Sharing block to add it your post.
  4. Set the following settings in the blocks settings panel:

When the Button Color is set to "Standard," the buttons will inherit whatever button color you've set in the Color Customizer. When the Button Color is set to "Social," the buttons will display their respective brand colors (i.e. red for Pinterest, blue for Facebook).

Author Box

The author box is enabled on a per-user basis.

  1. To enable the author box, go to Users > All Users.
  2. Click Edit on the user you'd like to enable the author box for.
  3. Under Author Archive Settings, check the box that reads: Enable author box on this user's posts?
  4. To change the name that appears after "About" – scroll up and add your preferred name to the Nickname field. Then, select the Nickname under Display Publicly As.
  5. To change the bio text – go to the "About Yourself" section and add your text in the Biographical Info field.
  6. Be sure to click Update Profile at the bottom when you're finished.

  • If there are no common tags, common categories are used instead.
  • If there are no common tags OR categories, no posts are displayed.
