In this tutorial, I’m going to share with you how I customized the content archives on my Genesis theme.
On your WordPress menu bar, go to Customize > Theme Settings > Content Archives.
Next, tweak the following options to your preference.
If you choose Entry Content, you can put a limit on the number of characters to display.
- Entry Content – shows the full content of the post.
- Entry Excerpts – shows an excerpt of the content.
If you want to display a Featured Image, check the box next to it.
- Featured Image Size – choose from Thumbnail (150 x 150), Medium (300 x 300), medium-large (768 x 0), and large (1024 x 1024).
- Featured Image Alignment – choose from None, Left, Center, and Right.
You can select the image size and configure how it would align/appear on the archive page.
Lastly, select the Entry Pagination Type you prefer.
- Previous / Next – shows a “Next Page” and/or “Previous Page” link to navigate between pages.
- Numeric – this option includes numerical links to navigate through the content archives.
That’s it! Hit Publish to save and apply changes.
