Homepage Customization Questions

Post by kelleypixelette » March 17th, 2017, 11:01 pm

Hello!

I have several questions about the homepage and customizing some areas. Here is my site preview:
http://moonhousemedia.com/griffin2

See the example attached as well:

Navigation
• Is there a way to change what the main navigation button links to – for example have ABOUT US link to HISTORY
• (Same with footer links)

Slider Area
• There is a little white strip on the right side of the image, that when you click it opens the image in a new window. Is there a way to remove that all together?

Services
• There is a field for the Service Link Text but that isn’t being used anywhere?
• Reduce the amount of space below the services?

Blog Posts on Homepage
• There seems to be no formatting allowed? No line breaks, bolding, etc are showing up.
• Extra period after the text
• Can I set to show only 2 blog posts on homepage?
• Remove Date and Comments all together?
• Padding on right side needs to be increased
• Anyway to show an image in these boxes too?

Footer Widgets
• Is there a Google Maps widget to add?
• Can the Flickr Images widget open the images in a new window?

Footer – Copyright, etc
• When I remove the Developer and Privacy links all together, there are still the 2 “|” lines showing up

thank you!!

For space below the services -

Code: Select all

Blog Posts on Homepage

Thank you.

My questions about the blog posts are for how they appear on the home page. i can't add any formatting to those homepage posts at all, and its making it difficult to match the look of the site. It won't register links or breaks or anything. See attached examples of how it looks in the CMS and on the live home page.

please advise. thank you.
