The Bulldog Premium WordPress theme includes a unique and highly customisable homepage template. Taking inspiration from a variety of leading global news sources, the Bulldog theme presents your news in a visually appealing way, designed to maximise the visible news content, click-throughs and minimise confusion and clutter.
Summary of homepage features:
- Featured posts from any category using jQuery slider and custom post field
- Four featured categories (user selected) showing latest posts from each
- Correct post thumbnail sizes automatically generated on upload, no tricky image resizing required
- Ad widgets built in (with banner rotation)
- Six widgetized areas for your favourite WordPress widgets!
- Three menus using WordPress 3+ menu system
- Cross-browser, multi-level drop-down top menu
Using WordPress custom fields, you may highlight any number of your articles/posts as “featured articles”, these will automatically be shown on the homepage slider, putting your most valuable content front and center of your visitors attention, even if many more subsequent posts have been published.
What’s more, using Bulldog’s built in, easy to use options panel, you can chose four of your site’s categories to be “Featured Categories”. The latest posts from these categories are selected, with thumbnails if available, and shown on the homepage in an attractive and easy to read style.
