Update – Indigo Child Theme


Here’s an update to Indigo Bootville Lite child theme that includes a new Homepage template with Jumbotron and six widgets. A border radius was added to the Navigation menu as well.

There are two areas in the CSS I’ve commented out that are optional. Once removes all border radius throughout the theme, the other adds a frame around the jumbotron featured image. Search the style.css for the word “optional”

Here’s how to use the Homepage Template

1. Create a new page, name it homepage for example
2. Create another page and name it blog
3. Visit Settings > Reading and set your front page to display a Static Page
4. Select the homepage page you created as the front page, and the blog page as the posts page.

Refresh your site and you should see the new page template.

The jumbotron displays the page content on the left and the featured image on the right.
Button classes can be used to create a call to action button (I’ll be creating a forum post on how to create these)
There are six widget areas that appear in two rows under the jumbotron, find these in appearance > widgets
The blog footer widgets are not displayed on this homepage.

This is a fairly basic page template but I use it for my own site and thought I would share it, if you have any questions or issues with this theme please leave a comment!
