14. Icon Theme: Setting up the Blog

In this article, we will go through the process of setting up the blog and blog article page

By default, the blog page shows blog articles (with pagination) and a blog sidebar that has recent articles, articles by tag, and a Facebook Like Box.

You can change some of the default options in the theme editor by going to Blogs in the template picker.

Full-Width Banner Image

The first option is to add a banner image that will span the full width of the blog page. It is recommended to use an image that has a 3:1 ratio and a minimum pixel width of 1920px wide.

Other Settings

Text - This is an area to add a text description to this page for some valuable SEO and to also guide customers through what the are viewing.

Show sidebar - Toggle the sidebar visibility which will in turn contain:

  • Recent posts toggle visibility
  • Tags for deep navigation within blogs
  • Facebook Like

Be sure to click the save button once you have chosen your settings.
