I just started a new website and used the same theme I used for my first website - Serenity - but things seem a bit different. One thing, as I recall it was easy to post my content and have it show up on the front page. However, back then I was using the dynamic format, but static will work better for this site. But now, where did my posts go?
I read another post on this forum about what seemed to be the same issue, and the poster got results by using the Genesis Sandbox Featured Content widget. I installed and activated that widget but nothing changed in what is showing for my site. I don't know what to try next.
Thanks in advance for your help!
I haven't used the serenity theme specifically, but this likely is an issue of dynamic content vs. static content. The recent posts, in fact, are the dynamic content.
There are a number of ways you can fix this, however, whether by making the home page your "posts" page (settings > reading) or by adding a recent posts widget into any sidebar which shows up on the front page.
The Serenity theme setup instructions may also prove helpful.
Okay, I named the Featured Post widget Featured Recipe and now it shows up as a header bar, but no post to go with it.
Sorry, also meant to say that I did put it into a Sidebar slot
Could you check that link you'd sent? It's not resolving for me.
I'm guessing that you also (in the widget area) need to tell it what post to display. Just setting the headline won't make it show content unless you tell it what to display.
Try dropping "recent posts" into one of the sidebars and see if that gets you a bit closer to what you're looking for.
