Layout Settings

Want to change just one thing to that one page? With Make Plus installed, you can use the Layout Settings to override the global options configured in the Content & Layout panel for individual posts and pages.


Page Options

On the Add New Page or Edit Page screen, click the Layout Settings tab to view the settings. (If the Layout Settings tab isn’t visible, click Screen Options in the upper right side of the Edit Page screen and click the checkbox beside it.)

Under Layout Settings, the link icon indicates whether the option is linked to the global settings you’ve chosen in the Customizer. To override, click the link icon to unlink the option, then check the boxes to override global settings for:

  • Header, Footer, Sidebars: Hide the header and footer and display a left or right sidebar on page.
  • Padding: Remove padding below header and above footer.
  • Featured Images: Set the style for displaying the featured image. Post header will display the image above the post title. Thumbnail will display the image using the thumbnail dimensions (defaults to 150Γ—150) below the post title and floated left in the content. None will cause the thumbnail not to be displayed.
  • Post Date: Display options are Absolute (as in “October 22, 2014”), Relative (to today’s date, as in “1 Week Ago”), or None.
  • Post Date Location: Control where the date displays: Top (above your entry title), Before content (below your entry title but above the content), or Post Footer (below your content with the rest of your meta data).
  • Post Author: Set the display style for the author byline. With avatar displays a circular image next to the byline. Without avatar displays only the byline. None hides the author byline completely.
  • Comment Count: Display the number of comments on each post With icon, With text, or None.
  • Breadcrumbs: Display Yoast SEO breadcrumbs on page (must have Yoast SEO plugin installed).
