Blog Global Options
Last Update: March 20, 2023
There is a range of both global and local options for the various parts of the Blog system. In this document, we will look at the various global options that affect the Blog.
General Blog Options
Firstly, the General Blog Options are located at Avada > Options > Blog > General Blog, from the WordPress dashboard.
As noted at the top of the page: “The options on this tab only control the assigned blog page in “Settings > Reading”, blog archives or the blog single post page, not the Blog Element or Post Cards Element. The only options on this tab that work with the Blog and Post Cards Element are the Date Format options and Load More Post Button Color.”
Archive pages are the automatically generated pages you get when you click on a Category, or Tag on the front end. These archive pages display according to the options chosen here. See the Blog Archive Pages documentation for more information on this.
Blog Single Post Options
The Blog Single Post tab is below the General Blog tab. The options here cover the default options for the Blog Single Posts, which can also be overridden on a blog post by post basis. See below for the Global options and see the Blog Post Options for more info on how to override these options on a post by post basis.
Blog Meta Options
The Blog Meta tab deals with how the Blog Meta data displays on various parts of the site. As noted at the top of the page, “The on/off meta options on this tab only control the assigned blog page in “Settings > Reading” or the blog archives, not the blog element. The only options on this tab that work with the blog element are the Meta Data Font Size and Date Format options.”
There are also Blog options in the Sidebars > Blog Posts, and Sidebars > Blog Archive sections. These two sections allow you to control the display and content of any sidebars you might want on your Single Blog Posts and Blog Archive Pages.
Avada Builder Elements > Blog Element
Finally, in the Avada Builder Elements > Blog Element area of the global options, you can set the default behavior of the Blog Element, which as well can be overridden in any instance of the Element you place on a page.
