Clover - Homepage Options

The first homepage section (Front Page 1) in the Clover theme has several widget options. Each widget has multiple configurations and opportunities to customize. We'll go everything below!

  1. Full Width Background Image + CTA (shown in the Clover website demo)
  2. Post Carousel (shown in the Clover blog demo)
  3. Featured Posts
  4. Featured Pages and/or Categories
Options #3 and #4 can also be used in any Front Page widget area, in addition to Front Page 1!

Full Width Image + CTA

To set a background image in Front Page 1, go to Appearance > Customize > Clover Theme Settings > Front Page > Front Page 1 Background Image.

Important note: If you do not want to use this configuration in Front Page 1 (full width background image + CTA widget), you'll most likely want to remove the background image from Front Page 1. Follow the same steps above, and click Remove under Front Page 1 Background Image.

To add the CTA widget, go to Appearance > Widgets and drag a 17th Ave - CTA Widget into Front Page 1. There are countless combinations and ways you can configure this widget. Here are some ideas!
