    Hi! On the homepage of, I wanted the first widget to link to the Services page. But it showed the entire text from that page on the widget and I couldn’t figure out how to make it just show an excerpt. So, I changed it to show html and went into the mainpage editing area and changed the text and the link to go to the services page.

    I would like the image above to be this:

    but I don’t know how to change the placeholder image coding to reflect that. Right now, it doesn’t show any image.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thank you!



    Edit index.php, find this code:

    $placeholder_image1 = get_bloginfo('template_url').'/files/medium1.jpg';

    Replace it with:

    $placeholder_image1 = '';

    Then edit the first HTML placeholder:

    $placeholder[1] = $placeholder_image1.'<h3>HTML Template „Display“</h3><p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco <a href="">laboris nisi</a> ut aliquip ex ea commodo conse. <a class="more-link" href="#">Read more</a></p>';

    Replace the title inside the H3 tag then the content. Add the link to the services page on this line of code:

    <a class="more-link" href="#">Read more</a>

    Now, go to Display > Mainpage Options > Mainpage – Columns > Mainpage – Column 1 > select “HTML(Simple placeholder text applied).
