Investica Part Four

Only one last thing we need to do for the two column post layout and that is to move the image below the title, as Artisteer have moved the post output we cannot change the layout in the page or content files, so we will change the code.

We have to stop and consider the rest of our pages that might use the thumbnail, these may include the search results, category and later a magazine style single category page, so we will leave the core function alone but copy and rename it for the homepage two column output.


We open the file in the /library/ folder called wrappers.php, there is a block of code which is our post output called theme_post_wrapper then we select and copy this function lines twelve to fifty six 12-56 to the clipboard.

Now we open the file in the /library/ folder called inv_functions.php we created in the earlier part, and we paste in the code from the clipboard, and we will change the function name which should be on line 17 we change this to:

function theme_homepage_wrapper($args = '') {

Cut line  echo $thumbnail; to the clipboard and paste this on a new line after the closing tag three lines down, the function code in inv-function.php should now look like this:

function theme_homepage_wrapper($args = '') {
    $args = wp_parse_args($args,
            'id' => '',
            'class' => '',
            'title' => '',
            'thumbnail' => '',
            'before' => '',
            'content' => '',
            'after' => ''
    if (theme_is_empty_html($title) && theme_is_empty_html($content)) return;
    if ($id) {
        $id = ' id="' . $id . '"';
    if ($class) {
        $class = ' ' . $class;
<div class="art-post<?php echo $class; ?>"<?php echo $id; ?>>
        <div class="art-post-body">
                <div class="art-post-inner art-article">
                    if (!theme_is_empty_html($title)){
                        echo '<h2 class="art-postheader">'.$title.'</h2>';
                    echo $thumbnail;
                    <div class="art-postcontent">
                        <!-- article-content -->
                        <?php echo $content; ?>
                        <!-- /article-content -->
                    <div class="cleared"></div>
            <div class="cleared"></div>


All we have done here is changed the name of the function and moved the image below the post or page title, this now looks like the html example.


In the main theme folder we open content-home.php and call our custom function with the new modified layout, with the title above the featured image.

We find theme_post_wrapper(

Change this to theme_homepage_wrapper(


In the next part we are adding an extra feature to our theme, the pages are a little boring so we will add a custom subtitle to pages and posts, this will be a h2 tag and can be used for SEO enhancement.
