Help » Aesop Story Front

The Aesop Story Front add-on will allow you to choose a specific story as your site’s landing page, so when someone visits your site, they will see your chosen story first.

warningThis add-on is currently only compatible with the Jorgen theme.

Setup is a snap and is finished in just a few steps:

  • Create a page in WordPress. The name doesn't matter in this application unless you are not setting the story as the front page of your site.

  • Open the WordPress admin Customizer panel at Appearance → Customize and locate the "Aesop Story Front" tab. Using the dropdown, select the story that you want to appear.

  • Using the next dropdown, select the page that you created in step one. This page will display the story you chose above.

  • While still in the Customizer, visit the "Static Front Page" tab and choose the page you created in step one.

Visit your site homepage. It should now display the story you chose with Aesop Story Front.

Story Cover

The story cover feature in the Jorgen theme is fully compatible. After you have setup your story and page, change the story cover options on that same page.

Template Override (advanced)

You can modify the template being used to display the single story. Simply copy the file asf.php from the plugin, and paste it into a child theme created for Jorgen. ASF will now use your template instead of the plugin’s template.

noteFor styling purposes within a theme, the selected Story Front page will have a class of .aesop-story-front applied to the body.
