Firstly, I absolutely LOVE GeneratePress … recently converted from Genesis, couldn’t be happier, and just upgraded to a lifetime Premium license during the sale. So, thank you!
Secondly, I prefer simply tweaking the main theme and not using a child.
The Problem: Here is what I’m trying to do and I know it has to be much simpler than I am making it.
Homepage: I like the minimalist look and pagination of a “your latest posts” homepage. But, I would like to add 1x large Featured Post (featured post #1) and then 2x side-by-side medium featured posts (featured posts #2 and #3) before the latest posts section starts (something simple like on the Engadget home page).
Is there a way to do this without having to use a child theme? Maybe some CSS I can add somewhere?
Well, I am going to shrink down all of the recent posts … I just want to be able to add a large first featured post, and then 2 side by side medium size featured posts, then I will have smaller recent posts all the way down … like Engadget.com. It’s simple, and many child themes offer it, I was just hoping to be able to add some quick code somewhere so that I wouldn’t have to use a child theme 😉
