Post

Customize the posts layout of your Joomla website.

YOOtheme Pro provides a default template for the single post view which comes with several layout settings. It also provides a default template for the blog view which has its own blog settings.

The following settings can be found in the Layout → Posts panel of YOOtheme Pro. Make sure to browse to a single post in the preview on the right to see the changes immediately.

Alternately, single posts can be created with the YOOtheme Pro builder and designed individually. This means the default post template will not be loaded, and the following settings will not be applied. Learn more about it in the post builder documentation.
