The frontpage of the Seasons theme has 5 widget areas:
- Home Products
- Home Testimonials
- Home Latest Posts
- Home Above Footer
- Home CTA
This is the widget area directly below the hero unit on the home page.
To display the products you can either use the WooCommerce widget or a WooCommerce shortcode.
The WooCommerce widget is pre-styled for four products. If you want to display more or less products, you can use the WooCommerce shortcode. Here you can find a screenshot of the settings used in the Seasons demo.
WooCommerce comes with several shortcodes that can be used to insert content in widget areas. A list of all the options can be found here.
For the homepage, I’ve used the following product shortcode. Change the number if you want to display less or more then five products.
For the testimonial widget, you need to install the Genesis Testimonial Slider plugin. Documentation about the setup of the plugin can be found here. To display the testimonial slider on the homepage, drag the Testimonials widget to the Home Testimonials area.
Home Latest Posts
The Latest Post widget is pre-styled for three, six or nine posts. Included below is a screenshot of the settings of the Featured Posts widget used in the Seasons demo.
