    Hi Phil!
    I have the Holly and Weave theme for WordPress. I have a question about the post layout at the homepage. I have a big central post that shows my recent posts. Under that I have a horizontal line of three fixed posts. And under that I have a vertical line with all my posts. Is there a way I can choose to have a certain post only displayed at the 3 * posts horizontal line up? If its easier to understand, I´ll send you my website!

    Thank you

      Hi Rita, depending no the feature you’re using to display the 3 posts then you might be able to select a post category to display. If you can send a link to your site I’ll check that.

    I fixed the HTML problem but I can’t figure out how to hide categories that I created from the main menu. I have 8 categories as the number of pages.

      To confirm, would you like to remove items from the menu? If so, you can do that via the “Appearance > Menus” section of your dashboard.

        Yes I can do that, I already tried to manage categories on manu section but my post are always uncategorized so I see them only in home page. I have a fashion post and on travel post but when I go to see them in the corrispettive page I don’t see them

    how can I link my post to my menus like LIFESTYLE, BEAUTY,TRAVEL?? im using opulence at the first i was able to do that but now i see only uncategorized.

        I don’t know but is still not working, when I try to add the new categories that I created I see the categories under the menu bar.
        And my main page is not working, the other problem since yesterday.
        I can’t see my last blog post, the menu on the top is not appearing and the footer with Instagram feed and all the socials.

          It looks like there is some broken HTML inside of the “Extra Excerpt Option” for your latest blog post. If you try removing that, it should fix the footer and homepage.

          You can add any post categories to your menu via this guide.
