    Hello, just switched our new site over to the blogway theme, so far I really like it but did have a few questions.

    How can we get our home page in the main header menu? Right now it can either say home and go to our site.com/home (which isn’t what we want) or not have home listed, how can we make home go to the actual home page?

    Secondly, is there a way to make the site identity only show up on the home page and not each post? Or can we make that section any smaller? Right now when people open our pages they just see the logo and some blank white space, we would prefer them to see the top of the post at the start, or a small logo and that is it.

    Third, at the bottom of each post under our related posts there is a gray bar (or two) that has the name of two other posts with a link, pretty sure these were the posts before and after the one we are on. Can we remove that if possible?

    Can we remove the blogway by promenade themes in the footer?

    Thanks if you can help, would really like to use this theme but need a few tweeks to make it right for us.

    Hi @worldguides

    Please find the answer to your questions below.

    1) How can we get our home page in the main header menu? Right now it can either say home and go to our site.com/home (which isn’t what we want) or not have home listed, how can we make home go to the actual home page?

    A: Please go to Appearance >> Menu, select menu assigned for Primary menu and change it there.

    2) Secondly, is there a way to make the site identity only show up on the home page and not each post? Or can we make that section any smaller? Right now when people open our pages they just see the logo and some blank white space, we would prefer them to see the top of the post at the start, or a small logo and that is it.

    A: Please go to Appearance >> Customize >> Additional CSS and add following CSS to hide site identity in inner pages

    .main-banner {
        display: none;
    }
    
    .home .main-banner {
        display: block;
    }
    
    #content {
        margin-top: 90px;
    }
    
    .home #content {
        margin-top: 0px;
    }

    3) Third, at the bottom of each post under our related posts there is a gray bar (or two) that has the name of two other posts with a link, pretty sure these were the posts before and after the one we are on. Can we remove that if possible?

    A: Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Theme Options >> Single Post Options and disable Show Post Navigation option. Please check this screenshot: https://prnt.sc/k2bljq

    4) Can we remove the blogway by promenade themes in the footer?

    A: You need to use Blog Way Plus for this option. Its premium version of the theme you are using. Please find more about Blog Way Plus at this link

    Thanks! I gotta say I am not good at techy stuff like that at all but you gave clear and direct answers and I got that all done in under 5 minutes! Really appreciated!

    I want to ask you something, but it will be beyond the scope of what I can handle so I am not asking for instructions on how to do it, instead I will pay a guy off Fiverr, just wanna check and see if it is even possible.

    Could we set up our home page to have 6 recent posts and then below that 6 clickable buttons to the different categories our site has? Is that possible on the free theme. So basically something like this

    header
    logo

    x x x
    x x x

    z z z
    z z z

    with x = recent posts and z = image button to either categories page or a static page with links to all of our other pages?

    can the home page be set up like that on the free theme? Again you don’t need to go into detail on how to do it as I would rather pay someone else to handle it, just a simple yes or no would do.

    Thanks again! Seriously amazed at how easy that was 🙂

    Hi @worldguides

    You cannot show the image button at the last of a home page. However, if you can do it if you create child theme of this theme and customize through child theme.

    Or you can use page builder like Elementor for this.

    Thank you.

    Hey quick question, is it possible to add the last update date to our posts?

    I tried to Google it and it says to add a code to my functions.php….. is that the only way? If that is the best way where in the functions.php should I put it? Anywhere? At the end? A specific place?

    Thanks for any help
