Custom Page Templates
By default WordPress allows you to create posts and pages. Your WordPress theme controls the appearance of your pages by utilizing a template file called
page.php. For this theme you can choose from a selection of pre-made templates to build your site, including a landing page template.
This template helps you to create custom landing pages on your site without showing the navigation menu or any other external links. It helps you to optimize your landing page for high conversions.
You can build up your site with 7 widget areas that you can customize to fit your brand.
The 7 widget areas are the Primary Sidebar, Front Page 1, Front Page 2, Front Page 3, Before Footer, Footer, and After Entry.
The front page shows off your latest blog post entries using an excerpt accompanied with featured images. In the footer, you can add several different widgets like contact details, custom links, and a subscribe box to catch the users’ attention.
Not many themes offer an After Entry, but the Interior Pro does and it is an extremely handy feature. Without this feature you’d have to manually add your message at the end of each blog post, which can be painstaking especially if you’ve hundreds of pages.
