Fullwidth Sticky Post or Featured Slider on the Homepage
On top of the homepage, you can choose between adding a static sticky post or a dynamic slideshow with featured posts.
Navigate to Appearance > Customizer > Madrid Theme Options > Homepage Layout and choose one of the two options below Featured Section.
Fullwidth Sticky Post: Navigate to Posts, hover over the post you would like to make sticky and click Quick Edit. On the right, there is a checkbox with “Make this post sticky“. The featured section will always display the latest sticky post if there is more than one.
Featured Post Slider: If you want to have a featured post slideshow on top, you have to assign the category featured to at least 3 posts. The sldieshow will always show the latest posts with the category ‘featured’.
