Landing Page » Featured Boxes

Featured boxes are created from published posts. When retrieving posts for the boxes, the themes will sort them by publish date, with the latest first. Posts' featured images will be used for the boxes background images (if set).

The themes may include one or more featured boxes sections. All sections support the same options but can be configured differently to obtain different visual, content and layout results.
