Intro page template
Since we launched JobEngine, there have been many requests to have a custom front page instead of viewing the job listings right away. With version 2.6, the theme now includes a page template crafted for this purpose. The intro page is designed with a simple approach to help job board owners easily customize it to suit their needs.
After updating the theme to v2.6, go to WordPress Pages and add a page for your front page. Then, select “Intro Page” for the “Template” of the page in the “Page Attributes” box. You can then try to view this page in the frontend after publishing it.
Finally, visit WordPress Settings – Reading. You need to set the above intro page as the front page of your job board to have it shown correctly.
The file for this intro page template is page-intro.php. Should you want to change the big-size image in the front page or the feature texts, simply use a child theme to overwrite the page template with your custom tweaks. You can read more about customizing theme using WordPress child themes here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
Another improvement in this version is for easier customization in the header area. We now separate the original header.php into three parts: header.php, header-nav.php and header-breadcrumbs.php. Again, you can now use a child theme to overwrite the files you want to apply the needed customization.
