    I’m new to Forefront and I’d like to know how to set up some things:

    1. How do I create a homepage or a simple page without displaying the name of the page in the middle of the featured picture? Is there a way to remove it?

    2. Is it possible to remove cascading from the main navbar? I’ve tried to set a child page following this example http://forefrontdemo.wordpress.com/page-templates/grid-page/ but I’m not even close to it :(

    3. last thing: is it possible to arrange text in columns and have a homepage like the one here? http://forefrontdemo.wordpress.com

    Thank you

    1. How do I create a homepage or a simple page without displaying the name of the page in the middle of the featured picture? Is there a way to remove it?

    You can remove the page title on the homepage with a bit of custom CSS, for which you’ll need the Custom CSS upgrade:

    .home .page-title {
    display: none;
    }

    With the upgrade, you would add this under Appearance > Customize > CSS.

    2. Is it possible to remove cascading from the main navbar? I’ve tried to set a child page following this example http://forefrontdemo.wordpress.com/page-templates/grid-page/ but I’m not even close to it :(

    Did you still need help with this? I don’t see any submenus in your navigation bar at the moment.

    3. last thing: is it possible to arrange text in columns and have a homepage like the one here? http://forefrontdemo.wordpress.com

    Sure, you can do that by placing some text widgets in the two front page widget areas you’ll find under Appearance > Widgets.

    If you haven’t already seen it, you may find our guide to setting up Forefront helpful:

    Just let me know if you need anything else.

    Thank you! I’m not using the cascade at the moment, but I guess it’s just the basic procedure, isn’t it?

    You’re welcome!

    When you create a sub-page, it gets added automatically as a sub-menu item as long as you’re using the default menu.

    If you’d rather the sub-page not get added to the menu, you can always create a Custom Menu to replace the default menu, and set it to use only the pages that you want included. Here’s a guide to Custom Menus:

    Thanks for the additional info.

    I’ve purchased the CSS upgrade but I’m not able to view the whole CSS code. Is it possible? I’d like to change my footer and some other elements…

    Hi there, here’s How to Find Your Theme’s CSS. This post about finding theme selectors is also helpful.

    You can any styles you want to override in your custom CSS area.

    Just let me know if you need further help.

    Thank you! I’ve just 3 more questions… sorry :)

    1. Is it possible to change footer’s details (add a © or something else where it displays Blog on WordPress)? What about social icons on the right?

    2. When I edit via CSS the “page-title display: none” it works great with pages + featured images, but if I don’t insert a featured image I get a white space. Is it possible to remove that space and start straight with the content of the page?

    3. Is it possible to have a bold title in the front page with custom text? Right now I can only display page’s title “home” or hide it using CSS

    Thanks

    1. Is it possible to change footer’s details (add a © or something else where it displays Blog on WordPress)?

    Adding this to your custom CSS should take care of it:

    .site-info:after {
    content: "A9 2013 My Name";
    display: block;
    }

    (Edit: the code above isn’t quite correct because the forum software stripped out a few characters – please see the screenshot I posted below.)

    You can change My Name or remove the year, as you like.

    What about social icons on the right?

    If you connect your site to social-sharing networks under Setting → Sharing, the corresponding icons should display at the bottom right of the footer.

    2. When I edit via CSS the “page-title display: none” it works great with pages + featured images, but if I don’t insert a featured image I get a white space. Is it possible to remove that space and start straight with the content of the page?

    Could you please provide a link to a page or post where this is happening so I can take a look? I would also appreciate it if

    you could you please start a new thread for this, and any other new question. It helps keep threads from getting too long and helps give better search results. Thanks!

    3. Is it possible to have a bold title in the front page with custom text? Right now I can only display page’s title “home” or hide it using CSS

    You can change the word “Home” to something else by editing the title of the page here:

    The forum software won’t let me post it, but the code you need for your copyright line should actually look like this:

    Thank you, I’ve started a new thread for question n.2

    Concerning footer, unfortunately the code you provided me doesn’t work.

    Any ideas?

    I don’t see any footer code in your custom CSS at the moment – would you put it back so I can take a look? Be sure to use the code from the screenshot here: https://cloudup.com/caDLZr01OuO

    I’ve started a new thread for question n.2

    Thanks. :-)

    Now is working :)

    Anyways, is it possible to have it below the other footer info only? What about replacing / editing the first line?

    Good!

    I’m not sure what you mean. It looks like it’s below the existing footer text to me:

    Pittinidigital com

    Could you explain in more detail what you’re trying to do?

    What about replacing / editing the first line?

    The wording of the exisiting footer text cannot be modified – that’s part of our Terms of Service.
