Available modules – Full list

These are the available modules that will let you create awesome and custom pages. Each module comes with its own layout and style settings.

(Please note: the modules availability and their specific settings depend on each theme, not all themes include the same modules with the same settings)

Authors

The Authors module displays a collection of the site’s authors, and it gives you the possibility to choose between showing all authors, or just a specific selection of them, in any particular module. Next to each author’s thumbnail you can display his/her bio, and the contact methods filled in in Users » Your Profile.

Note: The image that gets shown for each author is its Gravatar. Visit this link for more information on how to get a Gravatar.

Blog

The Blog module lists your posts.

Depending on the theme you’re using you’ll have different Blog styles to choose from: the Masonry style, which brings a neat grid with all your posts, in a very visual way; the Classic style which brings your posts in full more classically; the Teasers style, which brings the post in a short version in a more magazine-like fashion; and the Headlines style, which will bring a neat big image with the post’s title.

Posts Selection: Different posts selection methods are available for this module.

  • All Posts: brings all the posts.
  • By Categories: will open a new selection box for specific posts categories to show
  • By Post Format: will open a new selection box for specific post formats to show
  • Custom Selection: will display a whole list of all published posts to choose from manually
  • Posts Offset: will pass over the specified amount of posts in the selection (won’t work for Custom Selection).
  • Exclude Posts: will exclude the specified posts from selection (use by entering IDs separated by a comma).

More options include how many posts to show, animation method, columns, etc.

Call to Action

Whenever you have a specific action you want your visitors to take on a page, the Call To Action module is your best available tool. And a very good one too.

Simply, add your call to action pre text on the editor field, set the button text and colors, and you’re done. Depending on where in the page you are using your call to action you may want to have a bigger or a smaller call to action box. You can select the size for this module in its options too.

Canvas

The Canvas module is simply an empty post-like-editor where you can throw anything you like. Text, images, embeds, HTML code. Think of it as the ultimate free module you can later on position anywhere you want on your site.

Hint: If you combine a Canvas module with the SiteOrigin’s Page Builder plugin (downloadable for free from the WordPress Plugin Repository) you can go crazy with the possibilities!

Flash News

The Flash News module displays a stripe shaped news bar, with your latest news, selected by post formats, posts categories or a custom selection (selection methods apply just as with the Blog or Carousel modules). A module title can be useful here to frame the news (ie: “Just Published:”).

Image

The Image module grabs your module’s Featured Image and showcases it in big size. Use it when you need just to present an image in a bold way, without much thinking.

Insights

The Insights module let’s you build what we call insights: a clear presentation of content with a title, an image, and -if you want to- a call to action button. You can use it to list features, to present ideas, to showcase new products, etc.

Each insight can take the form of four possible layouts, accommodating the content on the left or the right side of the image, or above or below it. This module also has an option for text color and for a cute appearance animation on all insights.

Slidable Insights

The Slidable Insights module works almost the same as the Insights one, only in a slidable fashion. They will take as much vertical space as the taller module needs according to which module is shown every time.

You can use all the layout options you would set up for the Insights module. In addition, select whether to use a cool numbered slide navigation or an elegan arrows one.

Logos Roll

The Logos Roll Module presents a series of logos (or any small image you can think of) with links (optional), both in multiple still columns layouts or in a carousel fashion. A great way to present your clients o companies you’ve worked with.

Magazine

The Magazine module is a magazine styled collection of posts which you can portray in four different layouts and in two or three columns wide.

This module works great when combined with other posts collection modules to create a magazine homepage, or a pseudo magazine category page.

Posts Selection works as follows:

  • All Posts: brings all the posts.
  • By Categories: will open a new selection box for specific posts categories to show
  • By Post Format: will open a new selection box for specific post formats to show
  • Custom Selection: will display a whole list of all published posts to choose from manually
  • Posts Offset: will pass over the specified amount of posts in the selection (won’t work for Custom Selection).
  • Exclude Posts: will exclude the specified posts from selection (use by entering IDs separated by a comma).

Portfolio

The Portfolio module showcases the portfolio posts.

It lets you choose between different layout styles, with margins or fullwidth layout, and in several columns options. You can also define for each portfolio module whether you want the items to open right there via Ajax or in a single post link. Hide or show the title for each item, the navigation filters and build your own list of items for each module (or bring them all or by categories).

Keep in mind that if you select to load the items on their own link (instead of the AJAX way) navigation will no longer be relative to the order the items appeared on the module, but on the natural WordPress order of “posts”.

Quote Posts Slider

This module presents a wide long slider pulling posts with Quote post format that rotates automatically. You can also build your query manually selecting specific quote posts, or bring them by a specific category. Text color is optional in case you can portray this posts over a contrasting background image or color.

Services

The Services modules features a list of items which you can display in different layouts, and in a varying number of columns. Use them to display services, features, points of interests or ideas. You can bring many different sets of services to each Service module you create.

You can define colors and a loading animation for all of them, and -separatedly- add an image (or an icon), a link, text and a title.

Posts Slider

The Posts Slider module features a stylish slider with your posts.

You can display your posts in a big screen fashion with excerpts and titles on them and let them amaze your visitors. Choose between different caption layouts and combine them with many position styles.

Options are available for transition timer, elements display, and margins settings which will make your slider full width if you’d like to.

Posts Selection: Different posts selection methods are available for this module.

  • All Posts: brings all the posts.
  • By Categories: will open a new selection box for specific posts categories to show
  • By Post Format: will open a new selection box for specific post formats to show

  • Posts Offset: will pass over the specified amount of posts in the selection (won’t work for Custom Selection).
  • Exclude Posts: will exclude the specified posts from selection (use by entering IDs separated by a comma).

Slider

Similiar to the Posts Slider module, the Slider module presents a specially created set of slides, each one with its own content, image and call to action button. You can create them and re order as wanted, with options for margin, transition timer and height for the whole module.

Note: Use the height field to set a preferred height for this module. To achieve a full-window-height effect, enter 100vh, or enter any height in pixels for a specific one.

Slogan

The Slogan module can be a slogan, or a call to action, or even a quick welcome phrase. Enter your title and text in the editor, add a link if you want, and hit publish. It’s a great way to make a nice phrase look amazing.

In addition, choose between a giant slogan style or a regular sized one, use up to two different call to action buttons and select a desired animation (if any) for it.

Note: By selecting a Gallery in the “Use Gallery Slider as Background” you can create an images slider background for the slogan automatically, while its contents remain still over it.

Video Background: To add a video background to the Slogan module, upload your video files to the Media Library (you can do that directly while editing the module) and choose your available formats. Some modern browsers will play different formats, so it’s better to upload your video in more than one format to assure better odds of your users having the proper codecs on their browsers.

Tip: Using any module’s ID (‘#post-26’, e.g.) as a link for any of the Call To Action buttons will make the window scroll to that module, providing the module exists on the same page as the slogan module. You can use that little feature to direct your visitors to a list of features, for instance, when they click on your “Find More” button.

Team

The Team module brings your created set of team members in many possible layouts (the members are added in each module). Create there as many members as you want, with a picture, personal data and social links.

Testimonials

Add as many testimonials as you want and display one by one in a slider, or in columns, to let your visitors know you better.

Tiled Display

The Tiled Display module is a magazine styled collection of posts which you can present in five different layouts and with two margins settings.

This module works great when combined with other posts collection modules to create a magazine homepage, or a pseudo magazine category page.

Posts Selection works as follows:

  • All Posts: brings all the posts.
  • By Categories: will open a new selection box for specific posts categories to show
  • By Post Format: will open a new selection box for specific post formats to show
  • Custom Selection: will display a whole list of all published posts to choose from manually
  • Posts Offset: will pass over the specified amount of posts in the selection (won’t work for Custom Selection).
  • Exclude Posts: will exclude the specified posts from selection (use by entering IDs separated by a comma).

Note: To use layouts 1 or 3 large thumbnail size must be set on WordPress defaults of 1024 by 1024 pixels.

Video Posts Slider

This module presents a wide long slider pulling posts with Video post format that rotates automatically. You can also build your query by manually selecting specific video posts, or bring them by a specific category.

Modules Tabs

The Modules Tabs module joins modules together by putting them on selectable tabs. Select the modules you want to use (each module will occupy one tab), order them as you want and then add the titles for each of the tabs below.

Keep in mind that reordering the tabs (the modules) won’t automatically reorder their titles, so you’ll have to manually check that out.

Modules Wrapper

The Modules Wrapper is a wrapper module (no pun intended) which serves basically one function: that is, to group modules together whether to be able to re order a large group of elements or to add a sidebar to its side.

This gets really helpful in the case you want to build a magazine style page with several modules containing posts collections, with a sidebar on their side, or to build a blog page with a sidebar.

To do that, just build your modules query by using the provided select box, and choose a sidebar, together with its position (left or right). You can create specific sidebars for this use by navigating to Theme Options >> Layout.
