Setting up the Sidebar Featured Posts ↑ Back to Top
The featured posts module, displayed in the sidebar of the Bueno demo, is a widget that can be placed in any of the widgetized regions and is tag based. As long as you specify a tag to pull results from (in the widget options of the Featured Posts widget) it should populate with a list of posts. You can choose to display only the excerpt, or the full content (up until the “read more” break if it is being used). Having a thumbnail generated for each featured post item is explained in the next section.
Below is a screenshot of the widget options of the Featured Posts widget.
Adding a Thumbnail to a Featured Post ↑ Back to Top
Adding thumbnails to display on the featured posts widget in the correct sizing is very easy thanks to the WooThemes image resizer script that generates cropped images to the required sizing for the templates.
All that is required is that you navigate to the “Bueno Custom Settings” below the WYSIWYG in the post/page editor and upload an image or add a video embed code in the corresponding fields. Once you have uploaded your image save your changes to the post and they should appear nicely in the featured posts widget. Remember the image resizer can scale down an image, but if an image is smaller than the designated placeholder for it, it will appear smaller.
Placing an advert on your website ↑ Back to Top
The Bueno theme has two dedicated ad sizes available to you for usage in the sidebar. An MPU (300 x 250 pixels) advert and up to 6 Block (125×125 pixels) adverts.
Both these ad spaces are widgetized, so to set up this advertising module to display, don’t forget to add the adverts and links in the theme options and then assign the “Woo Ads – 125 x 125” widget to the “Sidebar” or footer widgetized regions. See the image below.
Custom Bueno widgets ↑ Back to Top
The theme includes 6 custom widgets that you can add to any one of your widgetized areas:
- Woo – Flickr
- Woo – Ads 125 x 125
- Woo – Ads 300 x 250
- Woo – Search
- Woo – Featured Posts
- Woo – Campaign Monitor
