To feature a post and display it first in the list with recent posts, just mark it as Sticky by checking the option Stick this post to the front page when you edit a post.
In WordPress 5.0 this option is located in the Document section:
If you want to show just the most recent Sticky post at the top, use this plugin.
Please note that the sticky posts will appear just like other posts if you use the Full-width layout on the homepage, by hiding the Sidebar.
Gourmand includes a full-width widgetized area in the footer called Instagram Bar.
In this area you can place the Instagram widget which you can get by installing our free plugin Instagram Widget by WPZOOM
1. Install the Instagram widget by WPZOOM plugin (From Plugins > Add New page)
2. Activate the plugin and connect it with your Instagram account in Settings > Instagram Widget page:
3. Go to the Widgets page and add the Instagram Widget by WPZOOM widget in the Instagram Bar area:
4. In order for the Instagram bar to fill entire width with images, we recommend increasing the number of images to something like 14-20 and the Image size to 240px or larger:
There are 4 banner locations in this theme and you can manage them in Theme Options > Banners:
Header Banner – appears at the top, above the logo.
After First Post – appears after first Sticky post.
