Posts Settings

Customize the posts layout of your Joomla website.

YOOtheme Pro adds several layout settings for the Joomla single post view. When configuring the settings, it's recommended to browse to the single post and preview the changes immediately.

Posts Builder

YOOtheme Pro allows you to edit single posts with the YOOtheme Pro page builder. Open the page builder as described in the basics documentation and start editing the post.

Mind that the page builder layout is only rendered in the single post view. In the blog overview the whole post is rendered with simple markup. Use the Content Length option in the Layout – Blog panel in YOOtheme Pro to limit the post text and remove the markup.

Content Excerpt

Alternatively, you can enter an excerpt for the post which can be shown in the blog overview instead of the post text.

Create a custom field with the name Excerpt and set the Automatic Display option to Do not automatically display in the Options tab of the custom field. The excerpt will be shown automatically.
