Showcase Pro: Page Templates

There are 4 page templates built into Showcase for you to use. When adding a new page, on the right hand side, there is a drop down labeled “Template.” Click on it to display the page template options.

The Default template displays a regular page with your sidebar. You can also change the layout settings to have the sidebar on the right or left, or full width.

  • The Archive template displays your site map in a listed order of links.
  • The Landing page template removes the header, footer and many other elements to reveal a very minimal page.
  • The Blog template displays your posts as a blog. (If you create a "blog" page and a "home" page you can set which one is which under Settings > Reading. Set the front page to display your home page and the posts page to be the blog page). 

Previous versions of Showcase Pro had a "full width" page template. However, this has been changed to a simple class. You will notice that by default, the full width layout option is constrained to a smaller column in the middle of the page. To change this, you may add a body class to the page editor called "full". This will override those settings and provide a completely full width content area.
