Zigzagpress Drone Theme : Homepage Options
The demo shows Portfolio page entries directly on homepage. So whatever projects listed on your site appears there in automatic mode. You can set homepage to display portfolio or blog entries on homepage area. It provides setup options to choose any template from website as homepage. Hence, you can set blog, portfolio or any other custom page for homepage.
The demo shows two homepage options : The default is portfolio style and Homepage 2 shows blog entries. There are many agencies and studios who needs a business style homepage. Those people can use shortcodes and genesis widgets to display services, price, introduction and other stuff. If you develop custom business intro page for frontpage then you can use portfolio and blog as extra pages.
Genesis widgets also allows you to display blog and portfolio page entries on homepage. It is upto you on what you would like to display on main page for your site. You must have a goal to display your best work, contacts and work sample for business site. Bloggers and marketers can can also use different ways to promote contents and products.
Drone theme has sidebar and footer (3 columns) widget areas for dynamic content promotion. You can simply drag and drop widgets to promote latest blog posts, categories, portfolio items, social links, contacts, author profile, and advertisement banners.
Blog and Portfolio Options :
Never choose basic templates to spread your work samples or stories. Because, a website is all about presenting your knowledge or work in best way. You can only earn good revenue from blog contents when you spread stories in clean way. Same way, client’s would only want to browse your portfolio page if you develop a professional showcase site.
This theme puts aside basic layouts and offers a modern masonry layout for blog and portfolio. Hence, you have chance to select 1,2,3 and upto 4 columns style. I suggest using maximum columns when you want to display more work in small space. If you want to display post featured images in big style then yo should choose less columns for masonry grid.
A filter navigation bar is visible above masonry content listing page. So website visitors can sort out posts based on one category. You will find genesis portfolio and blog options on back-end side, so no need to use 3rd party tools.
The portfolio post type makes better way to show-off work samples using gallery, video and project details. Same way, bloggers can choose post formats to create audio, video, gallery, quote and other attractive articles. You can assign custom sidebar layout style for pages and posts. The 3 layouts options helps you to add sidebar on either side (right/left). Selecting full-width mode will remove sidebar, which is good for marketing campaigns.
