There are 17 different homepage styles available in the theme, you can see them all on the theme demo.
To set up a homepage go to WP admin → Pages → Add New. Add a page title ( can be anything ), set the Template to Homepage and in the Homepage Options set the amount of posts and choose the style you want and publish the page.
Now that the page is created, let's set that page to be the homepage ( front page ):
- Go to WP admin → Settings → Reading
- You will see a select dropdown called Front Page where you can choose the page you created.
- Save changes and that's it
Below is a screenshot of that section and the select dropdown field.
On the homepage there is a small carousel with posts at the top, just below the navigation. To add posts to that carousel simply give them the tag carousel-small
Below the small carousel is a bigger carousel. To add posts to that carousel simply give them the tag carousel
The content for the promo boxes can be changed in the Theme Options which are located in WP Admin > Appearance > Customize. You will see the Promo Boxes section there, as shown in the theme options part of the documentation.
