Adding a Post

We’ve tried our best to make adding an image or video post as flexible as possible in FolioGrid Pro.

Initial Setup

  1. Add a new post under Posts -> Add New.
  2. Add the title and content for the post as per usual.

Now you have some extra options to add an image or video to the post which will display on the home page and also the width of the post on the home page. You should see a box called ‘FrogsThemes Custom Post Options’ and this is where the magic happens :)

Adding an image thumbnail

To add an image thumbnail:

  1. Select the width of the box for the home page whether it’s 1, 2 or 3 columns wide.
  2. Make sure the tab ‘Image Thumbnail’ is selected.
  3. Now in the box (usually in the right hand column) called ‘Featured Image’, click the link to ‘Set featured image’.
  4. The WordPress Media Library will pop up now to allow you to either upload or select an image from the media gallery.
  5. Click ‘Show’ to view the details of the image you want featured and click ‘Use as featured image’.
  6. Close the uploader and save/publish any changes. You should not need to ‘Insert into post’.

Adding a video post

To add a video post in FolioGrid Pro:

  1. Select the width of the box for the home page whether it’s 1, 2 or 3 columns wide.
  2. Make sure the tab ‘Video’ is selected. This should list out all the available hosting sites you can use.
  3. Select the tab for the video hosting site you wish to use and add the video code for the video you want to use. This should just be a combination of characters/numbers and the full URL is not required.

Automatically showing featured images and videos on inner pages

There is an option in the theme options under FolioGrid Pro -> Theme Options -> General to enable to automatic display of featured images and videos onto the inner pages of a post to save having to embed it in the editor. You can switch this on or off to suits your needs and it allows a bit more flexibility in functionality.
