Services

Modern Business Pro comes with a custom post type: Services. Use this post type to advertise the services you provide, which are automatically posted to the Services page. This functions similarly to a normal post, but is optimized specifically for showcasing the services you provide.

 

Adding a New Service

  1. From the WordPress dashboard, navigate to Services > Add New
  2. Enter a title for your service, and some content regarding it (a description, pictures, video, etc.)
  3. When you’ve finished, click Publish

 

Adding the Services Page to a Menu

  1. From the WordPress dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Menus
  2. Select a menu to edit in the dropdown box at the top and click Select
  3. Locate and select the Links section in the vertical menu on the left
  4. Enter your website name followed by /services (http://example.com/services) as the URL
  5. Enter Services as the Link Text
  6. Click Add to Menu
  7. Click and drag the menu item to your preferred location in the menu
  8. Click Save Menu

Creating a Services page layout, like the Modern Business demo

Here’s how you can create a custom view of your services like the demo! To sum it up, you will want to have your Services posts made — it just makes things a little easier. Go ahead create one or two services, and make sure you’re setting featured images to represent each.

From there, you want to go under Appearances > Theme options and set the Layout of the Services posts type. That will allow you to control the sidebars or full-width of the page.

Lastly, we will set Minimize Blocks widgets by browsing to Appearances > Widgets and dragging the Minimize Block widget into the Services Sidebar. In each widget, you can identify the size of the display (small, medium, or large) and then drag-and-drop them to display multiple services on a page.

Here’s three screenshots to show this whole process in action:
