Pages

Pages are for the majority of content. Use the Page Attributes to specify the pages’ template. Custom templates are setup for certain pages ie. Retreats. Some pages have a large ‘hero’ or header image. This image is edited in the Featured Image section. The default template is suitable for most pages. When a new page is created and published it is not reachable until it has been included in the navigation. See the Navigation section for more info.

 

Blog & Posts

Adding a new blog post is done in the Posts area. The featured image and Excerpt section are used to control how the post appears on the main blog feed (shantiuganda.org/blog).
