Configure Home Layout

Access Layout and Add or Edit Label widgets in home-layout section. You should select only one label for each Label widget in home-layout section

The structure of widget title will decide how the widget will display on home page. Structure of widget title must like below:


Display_Name: the name you want to show on home page.

Design_Type: is the design of widget will show on home page. We support 8 types: hot, three, dark, two, oneleft, oneright, slider and combine. All must be lowercase.

Number_Item: this optional, default is 5 items will be displayed if you not use this parameter.

Use Shortcodes

Flat News support three shortcodes as below:

Show recent posts:

<div class="recent-posts"></div>

Show recent comments

<div class="recent-comments"></div>

Show random posts

<div class="random-posts"></div>

To use shorcodes, you can input them in content of any HTML widgets. As default, I had already added 3 HTML widgets for you in Layout.

Click Edit link of each. In Configure HTML/Javascript window, input your appropriate shortcode into Content field then click Save.

To specific number of posts show in shortcodes, you can add "number" attribute, example:

<div class="random-posts" number="3"></div>
