    Hi,

    Is it possible to change the home page so that….

    1. There’s a carousel on top with the latest blog posts instead of a header image
    2. Instead of the latest posts (where it is at the moment) I have links to categories with a set image for each category?

    cheers!

    The blog I need help with is theappuchronicles.com

    Hi Aparajitaa!

    1. There’s a carousel on top with the latest blog posts instead of a header image

    Photo Blog doesn’t come with a carousel. One thing you could do is upload multiple custom headers and then set them to randomize. That would display a different header on each page load.

    2. Instead of the latest posts (where it is at the moment) I have links to categories with a set image for each category?

    That’s not something built into the theme, but that’s certainly something you could set up manually, after switching to a static front page in your Customizer’s Homepage Settings panel. You could upload images and link to your categories within the body of the page.

    If you need further help with anything just let me know.

    Thanks Kathryn!

    Will give both your suggestions a try and see how I get on. The solution to #1 doesn’t allows me to put the latest blog posts as a header but I do understand that this theme does not support a carousel. Will have to think of a another way to display latest posts whilst at the same time using the solution to #2!

    Cheers

    OK, let me know how it goes or if I can help with anything else! If you prefer a theme that lets you set posts in a slider, you might want to check out the list here:
