Homepage Setup

The homepage for Chic is easy to setup since the theme uses your most recent blog posts by default., or you can use our built-in categories page template.

Default Homepage

Chic will automatically display your latests posts as well as a featured posts slider. You don’t have to do anything, since WordPress automatically uses your latest posts for the front page.

Homepage Categories
