Images in MH Magazine lite WordPress Theme
To display thumbnails for the custom widgets and archives on your website, you’ll need to upload featured images to your posts. In case you don’t have uploaded featured images yet, you might see blank image placeholders instead of thumbnails on your website. You can read this tutorial to learn more about featured images in WordPress: How to use featured images in WordPress.
How to create a magazine like front page
When you have activated MH Magazine lite WordPress Theme for the first time, the theme will display your articles in default blog style. To display the content on your front page in magazine style, you’ll need to create a static front page first and assign the built-in “Homepage” template to your front page. For more information, please have a look at this tutorial: How to set a Static Front Page in WordPress.
After you have set a static front page for your website and have assigned the “Homepage” template to your static front page, you can navigate to “Appearance => Widgets” in your WordPress dashboard and place widgets like “MH Slider” and “MH Custom Posts” into the widget locations “Home 1″ until “Home 5″ on your front page (see screenshot).
