Frontpage 5 Widget Block : This section is also capable to showing any widget, but we suggest this place to display blog posts. Mostly, business owners miss out to display latest news on homepage area. But, we recommend using “Genesis Featured Posts” widget to highlight some latest news from all or selected category. Once you place this widget on homepage then it will always display a few latest featured blog posts with thumbnails and small details.
The widget management page will show you all common and genesis widgets and this is where you can place widgets and customize their settings. You can drag and drop widgets and then edit their order ot contents from widget page or from customizer screen also.
Blog Settings and Theme Options : Authority Pro
Header and Top Bar : If you check Authority Pro demo with close look then it has one announcement bar just above the header. This is called “Top Bar” which is used to post latest announcements, special offers, product release news and other important stuff. The top bar is visible everywhere just like header logo and menu bar. This announcement bar easily sticks to visitor’s eye because of bold and solid background color.
Apart from Primary navigation menu, you will have footer menu space to display social or other custom links. There is a 3rd menu space available on the left top side of the page which is ideal to display social links. If you assign social menu to left top side then it will display links in vertical style and floating mode.
So user can always see your social page links on the top left while scrolling over the pages.
Blog Page Settings : The blog is also optimized to improve the content marketing efforts. If we talk about blog then you can use grid layout for category archive pages and standard listing layout for blog page. The single blog post has options to display big featured image just above the every post. There is one more feature which can show first paragraph of every post in stylish font style.
