Home Page

The first step it to create a page (go to  Pages -> Add New) and select "Home Page Option A" template from the right sidebar.

After this step, navigate to  Settings > Reading settings > Front page display > A static page > Choose the page you created.

Home Page A

In this .gif you can see the first example of the Home Page and how you can modify it. For the Top Section Post, you can choose a specific category or add all of them.

TheMotion has a ribbon bellow the "Top Section", which you can choose to either display or hide. Also, you can change the Banner Headline, the Button Text, and the Button Link.

This one is the second Home Page example, which is more complex than the first. On Home Page Option B, you have four sections that can be customized.


TheMotion allows you to change the colors. You can do it from   Appearance > Customize > Colors. There, you can select one of the multiple color schemes or add your own custom colors (you have unlimited options here).
