Hello! Lay Theme looks really interesting and I am curious to try it out soon, just a general question after watching the Youtube Tutorial: Is it right that all blogging functionality is disabled with the use of the theme? What if I would like to have a section "Blog" where I can have a regular WP-native blog behaviour?
Yeah there's no blogging, it's just for portfolios. I'm thinking about coding a gridder wordpress plugin one day that works with any normal WordPress theme. Can take a while though ^^
@Tobias Hey, I managed to open a "blog" section on some of the websites I designed with Lay, by creating a "Blog" category, add it to the main menu and then create "blog posts" only in that category.
But it works pretty well, as a news section or latest stories section - if you don't need comments and sharing options.
Also you can start a tumblr as a blog and add it's link to the main menu on the website and use a subdomain to hide the .tumblr.com domain...
My 2 cents...
Hey Armin, did you successfully think about coding a gridder wordpress plugin? I'm still building a new portfolio with Lay Theme and would love to integrate blogging functionality.
hey martin, gonna start coding a gridder wordpress plugin soon. To be honest, I wanted to start working on it already last year, but I had so many other freelance jobs…
Working on at my new portfolio and honestly waiting for Armin's gridder wordpress plugin. If you would like to see the work in progess visit: www.martinmaier.com/wp
@arminunruh Hey Armin, I like to buy your theme. But a Blog-Function is very important to me, Not at least because of the SEO. Is there anything new? Is blogging possible, now? Thanks in advance! Peter
Li'l bump for simple blog functions. (I'm looking at LayGridder, but not quite sure how that works).
Blog integration is unlikely to come anytime soon unfortunately, Armin's focus currently on Woocommerce integration and also that Lay Theme was never designed to be for blogging but portfolio's.
Laygridder is a Plugin version of Lay Theme. It allows you to apply the Gridder Layout to Pages but doesn't change the whole Back-end functionality so you could have a 'Theme' that works better for Blogging and then have 'Laygridder' which you use within your pages to gain the benefits of the Gridder.
Hope this helps & best wishes

... but maybe Lay Theme can grow into something much bigger than initially planned? 😌 ....
If I start a petition and get more than 200 signatures, do we get a blog function? Pleeeaassseee Papa Armin 🥺🥺🥺
One could be installing another Wordpress theme and adding it under, say Blog menu item. Then it's just a matter of styling it so it matches your Laytheme design.
Install it under yourdomain.org/blog, it will be hard to tell you've jumped to another site.
yea im going to start working on the blog feature now!
@arminunruh great and thank you!!!!!!!!
Is the blogfunction available now? We Need Thom very urgent. Thanx 4 a quick answer.
I don't answer or check forum DMs, please just post on the forum.
Before you post:
Use the Search Feature. Maybe there is already a solution to your issue.
1. Update Lay Theme and all Lay Theme Addons
2. Disable all Plugins
3. Go to Lay Options → Custom CSS & HTML, click "Turn Off All Custom Code ", click "Save Changes"
4. When using a WordPress Cache plugin, disable it or clear your cache. Now see if your problem solved itself.
Go here, see if your problem is listed here:
When you post:
1. Post a link to where the problem is
2. If the problem is difficult to explain, post screenshots / link to a video to explain it
