    I recently bought the GeneretePro version 2.2.1
    I like the theme a lot and it’s very fast.
    However I would like to make some changes.
    The changes concern the single post the archives and the home page.

    Single post:
    I would like to insert the views
    I would like to insert the author biography
    I would like to insert a number of related articles

    Post archive / category
    Mosaic view
    Only image with title only

    home page
    One page style with 4/5 sections

    I send you my website currently created with the Bimber theme
    Single post
    Single Post
    Post category
    Post category

    At the moment I managed to do this with your thema
    Can you help me customize the theme?

    I await your news
    Thank you

    Hi there,

    Single post: You will need a plugin for all three things. Here are some for example:

    Worth Googling around and try a few options to see which one fits you the best πŸ™‚

    Archives: Try Masonry option: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-columns-in-the-blog/
    Looks like you have image with title only set up?

    Home page: Any specifics you need help with? To replicate those pages will take a considerable amount of HTML + CSS + plugins.
    As for layout, you can try using GP’s Sections: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/sections-overview/. Or even Gutenberg from WordPress.
    For displaying posts, you could try using Tom’s WP Show posts plugin:

    Hi Leo
    I followed your advice and installed:
    Post Views Counter
    Contextual Related Posts
    Simple Author Box

    We are similar in layout, but we are still far from achieving the same result.

    You can see the differences here



    I bought GeneratePress because it is definitely faster and I still have not activated the CND CloudFlare service.

    How can I improve the layout to make it similar to the Bimber theme?

    Which parts are you referring to specifically?

    The GeneratePress link above is linking to a support topic?

    Keep in mind that we can point you to the right direction but won’t be able to do everything for you.

    Hi, Leo, I’m sorry for the link

    here is the correct link: GeneratePress

    Taking as a reference the single post I marked you with a red box and with red arrows the things I would like to customize:
    Here you can see this picture



    1- The visualization symbol is made with an icon and also an image author together with the author
    2- at the bottom of the article there is a previous and next article
    3- the number of shares is in red while mine is in gray
    4- Articles of the same category: I put 3 arrows that indicate a different icon (Trend, Popular and Hot) in the upper left corner
    5- in related articles we are always shown the visualizations with another symbol

    Post Archives or Category

    The Bimber Layout allows different configurations
    While GeneratePress right now only 2.

    in this configuration

    the title of the post is in the image
    the visualizations are also present
    there are icons (Trend, Popular and Hot)

    The Bimber theme has many plugins that I have disabled.
    All these customizations are in the theme settings that I can activate or deactivate.

    If possible I would like to get this result without having to add Plugin but customizing the theme.

    With GeneratePress I was able to replicate the font, the font color and the layout.
    I hope you have good news for me and can be done without adding plugins.

    I await your news

    1. To add/change the icon for Post Views, you will need to check with the plugin support.
    As for author image, this might be a good start: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/entry-meta-style/

    2. GP also has post navigation in the customizer and some pre-baked inline style to help you get started:

    3-5. Those are all from plugins so you will need to check with their support for any customizations.

    To replicate an archive layout exactly like that will take a lot of custom coding (HTML and CSS) which is outside the scope of this forum.

    If you aren’t comfortable with coding, I would recommend looking into hiring a developer. If that’s not within your budget then using a pre-baked theme with everything you already wanted might actually be the best solution unless you want to take the time to learn how to code.

    Sorry if this isn’t the reply you are looking for. Just being honest πŸ™‚

    Hi Leo
    thank you very much for your information.
    Now I try these changes.

    What kind of online service can you recommend to make these changes?
    In your opinion, how much money do I need for these customizations?

    Wait for your news
    Thank you

    Customer Support

    Can’t really comment on the price. I assume it will heavily depend on how easy those third-party plugins allow you to modify things to the way you want.

    If you are looking for a developer, you could try joining our Facebook group GeneratePress Community πŸ™‚

    Hope this helps!

    Paolo Fauci

    Thank you so much.

    No problem πŸ™‚
