Also Unable to see Front Page Widgets

    I was really excited to change over to Veggie, but like a previous poster I cannot get the Front Page Widgets to display. I have read all the instructions, and my home page lists all of my recent posts. It seems to be the right setup for the widgets, but I can’t get any Theme Option to display the Front Page Widgets.

    I also can’t get “Exerpt Only” to work. It’s showing the entire post in grid format. Very messy :(

    The blog I need help with is reikigemwellness.com.

    Hi,

    thank you for using our theme.

    By default, the front page displays your latest posts on a new site. If you don’t want to use blog posts for your homepage you can set up a static front page following this step-by-step guide: https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/. Once you’ve created your static homepage, assign it the Front Page template. This step is very important for the widgetized blocks. You’ll need to choose Front Page template for your home page and to set up as static page as your home page to be able to see widgets: https://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/#page-templates

    The widget panel will only show widgets that are applicable to a particular page, so if you don’t see the front page widget areas, try clicking on the site’s header image in the display area of the Customizer. This will return the Customizer to the home/front page and the front page widget areas should appear.

    Here is more info about the widgets: https://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/ and Customizer: https://en.support.wordpress.com/customizer/

    For the posts and excerpt part you’ll need to add more block to truncate your blog entries so that only the first part of a post is displayed on homepage, archive pages and in subscriber emails: https://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpress-editor/blocks/more-block/

    Hope this helps.

    All the best,
    Ana
