    Default How to set up magazine layout

    I have looked everyone on the theme settings, nowhere do I see how to set up the magazine style in the new version. Can anyone direct me.
    Thank you

    You can read the setup pdf below the download link or watch the video on the Soc 3.0 videos page.

    Here's a link to the PDF from the download page with info on the magazine templates.

    Are the posts in the Featured category and do they have featured images set?

    I had to choose the featured image on my own, manually.

    There are however 2 more problems that I have just encountered.

    1-Featured image are showing on my main page (index page).
    2-Full articles are shown instead of summary, even though I have chosen to show only the summary in the "reading" setting.

    Please, please help. Thanks. Socrates Help.jpg

    The featured image should show up on the index page in the image rotator. To show just a excerpt of the post you also need to put a "read more" tag in your text at the point you want the excerpt to end. In the visual editor it looks like a page with a horizontal dashed line through it.

    I have rectified that error thanks to your help *grateful*.

    One more thing. How come there are 17 posts (which are all my blog posts to date) shown on the homepage? How can I change this? Previously pagination (at the bottom is still working) without the magazine template.

    Please help me. I appreciate it.
