Home Page and Sliders
Videology’s home page has 3 built-in elements that allow you to put more attention on selected posts, pages, or other parts of your website. These are the Content Overview, Main Slider, and News Slider. All of these elements can be customized through the Theme Options admin page.
The content overview can be found below either the main slider or the news slider, depending on your settings. It is composed of a box or a set of boxes each having a title, an icon, a short description, and a link to the actual content it represents within or outside your website. See the screenshot below.
The main slider appears at the top of the home page just below the header and is the most visible part of the home page. The main slider content area consists of the featured image which serves as the background, the text part (title, description, “Read more” and “Watch” links), the video player which appears when you click the “Watch” button (when a video is associated to the post), and the thumbnail navigation which moves the slides when an item is clicked.
The theme options admin page also allows you to customize the content (Main slider Settings) and colors (Color Customizer) of this slider.
News (Drag-n-Drop) Slider
The news slider is a drag-n-drop slider that gives you another way of drawing attention to certain posts. When you hold down your mouse within this area, the contents will move to the direction of your mouse movement. Once you release, the slider will slide-switch to the next (or previous) content depending on the direction of your mouse movement.
Each item is composed of the category name, post title, post excerpt, link to the full post, and a featured image. See the image below.
Just like the content overview and main slider, you can customize the content (News Slider Settings) and colors (Color customizer) of this home page element.
