    Hi,
    The only way to edit the front page is by going the theme customization way as I understand. What if I want to add other items that are not available there? I want to add an image between 2 areas on my home page?

    Thank you!

    Hi
    The URL is palosverdesmagazine.com and right now I just need to understand how and where to add it in, I want to be flexible and have the ability to add items that are not of the theme’s original “customize” items. For example if I want to add widgets to the page.

    But for testing sake I want it to be added just above the “Project” area.

    Thank you

    @palosverdesmagazine: Hello there,
    What you can do is add the image to any of the section and then reorder the section using the Section Sorter feature.
    An image cannot be added between sections using a widget.

    Let me know if this helps you out!
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha

    Ok it does not really solve my problem but I will try to figure it out.

    Another questions I have, why is my page’s “featured image” not covering the whole width? I want it to be as wide as my menu as it looks weird that it’s a bit shorter.

    @palosverdesmagazine: Hello there,
    To make the featured image for blog posts as wide as the menu. You will need to create a child theme and do a little bit of customization. Let me know if you are familiar with chlid theme customization so that I can guide you.

    Kind Regards,

    @palosverdesmagazine: Hello there,
    To create a child theme you can use our plugin Generate Child Theme.

    Install and Activate the plugin
    Then,
    Go to => Dashboard => Generate Child Theme => Select Parent Theme as Catch Inspire Pro and fill in remaining fields and Click on Generate.

    Now,
    Go to => Child Theme Folder => functions.php and add the following Code.

    function override_set_post_thumbnail_image_sizes() {
        // Used in excerpt image Top 16:9 Ratio
    	set_post_thumbnail_size( 1920, 1080, true );
    }
    add_action('init', 'override_set_post_thumbnail_image_sizes');

    Replace 1920, 1080 with the image size of your choice.

    Let me know if this works out!
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha
