customize the grid used for default posts page
December 14, 2017 at 11:14 pm #7100
So there is an auto generated posts page and I can customize it somewhat–change it from a list to a grid for example. However, I don’t see a way to have it call a custom grid template so that I can tweak the look and feel of that grid. Is this possible? If so, where do I go to configure this?

Unfortunately, it’s no possible to modify the blog layouts templates to have a custom layout.
You can try to use the “WPBakery Page Builder” plugin bundled with the theme, and create a blog with
Some of the Post Grid elements they have.

Can this be added to the roadmap? Without the ability to leverage a custom grid, I cannot leverage any of your automatically-created pages without stepping outside the branding guides. I was surprised to find this to be a limitation. Judging from the post count, I am guessing this topic is of interest to others, so if there is a formal method to request the feature be added, I’d be happy to do so.

I really do not understand what exactly you want to do ?
Can you find a simple way to elaborate us your situation ?
You can use even screenshots or anything you want to make your case clear.

RESOLVED (sort of): For those of you that would like to change the appearance of the default post grid that appears when you click on any WP-generated category, this code is held in framework/blog/grid.php
If, for example, you wanted the headings to be <h4> tags instead of the default <h1> tags, you can edit that detail in the above directly. However, you will need to go back and do this after every update to theme, as it is changing a core theme file.
Customer request for the product roadmap: I would love to see a feature be added to Agama Pro that allows these grids to call a custom grid instead of being hardcoded to one default look and style.December 19, 2017 at 9:03 am #7154ZexModerator
I’m glad you found a way to solve this, maybe this options will be implemented in some of the future updates.
To avoid re-setting the theme after the update, I suggest you use the child-theme.
Creating a child theme when performing adjustments to your theme’s code can save you a lot of future headaches. Child themes allow you to make changes without affecting the original theme’s code, which makes it easy to update your parent theme without erasing your changes. By creating a child theme, you create a separate set of files that you can use to customize the theme without affecting the original theme at all. Not only does this make updating easier, it also makes sure that you will never ruin your original theme as you are never actually modifying the files. You can always turn off your child theme and fall back on the original.
If you will need to create the child-theme and migrate your theme with all settings you can follow the steps from THIS post.
