    Hello Taras

    Thank you for your lovely design. I’ve updated from a very old wordpress theme.
    I had a few questions which I am hoping can be sorted out with css.

    First: is it possible to have all the single post pages and other static pages looking exactly the same as the home page? I really like the design on the home page. So titles would still be in the posts as opposed to on the background and various boxes would still display in the same way as the front page.

    Second: how do I get the banner and menu on the front page looking like your demo? That is, title at the top with social media icons, and then menu bar and then image.

    Third question: would it be possible to make the font on the tag line a bit darker and the tag appear under the title of the site as opposed to alongside it?

    If you have any other layout solutions that I hadn’t considered perhaps, I’d be happy to hear them.

    My site is https://foucaultnews.com/

    The blog I need help with is foucaultnews.com.

    Hello,
    Thank you for using the tdEditor theme :)

    “is it possible to have all the single post pages and other static pages looking exactly the same as the home page?”
    – I am afraid it’s not possible to have all the single post pages looking exactly the same as the home page because the home page comes with its own styling and structure.

    “how do I get the banner and menu on the front page looking like your demo? That is, title at the top with social media icons, and then menu bar and then image.”
    – In order to display the slideshow on your front page, you’ll need:

    1) Setting up Front Page and Blog Page. Please see “Setting up Your Pages” section @ https://wordpress.com/theme/tdeditor/setup

    2) Setting up the Featured Content. Please see “Configuring the Featured Content Slideshow” section @ https://wordpress.com/theme/tdeditor/setup

    3) To display different categories on the Front Page template, please use Category Posts Widget. See “Displaying Recent Category Posts on the Homepage” section @ https://wordpress.com/theme/tdeditor/setup

    To display the social menu section in the header, please create a social menu. Please see this documentation page: https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/social-links-menu/

    “would it be possible to make the font on the tag line a bit darker and the tag appear under the title of the site as opposed to alongside it?”
    – Sure. Please use this custom CSS:

    #masthead .site-description {
      opacity: 1;
      display: block;
      color: #777777;
    }
    
    .website-logo {
      margin-bottom: 30px;
    }

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thank you,
    Taras

    Hi Taras

    Many thanks for this. I will have a play with setting up a static page for the front page as that would deal with some of my requests, but that might be tricky as it is a news blog.

    In the meantime would I be able to change the colour of the links and reduce the white space between paragraphs? Also is it possible to stop the navigation bar scrolling down?

    Thank you so much for all your help on this.

    Hi Taras

    And another request. Would it be possible to not show the gravatar on the single post pages?

    Hello,

    “In the meantime would I be able to change the colour of the links and reduce the white space between paragraphs?”
    – To change the colour of the links, please use this custom CSS:

    .single .entry-content a,
    .page .entry-content a {
      color: blue;
    }

    To reduce the line height, please use this custom CSS:

    body {
        line-height: 1.55;
    }

    “Also is it possible to stop the navigation bar scrolling down?”
    – Yes, please add this custom CSS:

    #site-navigation.sticky-navigation {
      position: static;
    }

    “Would it be possible to not show the gravatar on the single post pages”
    – Please try this custom CSS:

    .single .hentry .hentry-inner .entry-author .avatar-container {
      display: none;
    }
    
    .single .hentry .hentry-inner .author-info {
      padding-top: 100px;
    }

    Thank you,
    Taras
