Create a blog with only one layout

For certain projects, you might want all of your posts/pages to have the same general layout and just the content will change and with Headway, this means you could create and customize one layout that would apply to everything. Doesn’t that sound easy?

Get Started

Let’s say you wanted to create a blog, you would open up the Blog Index in Grid Mode andcreate your layout.

For this tutorial, create whatever layout you want on the blog index. I chose a preset with a widget area on the left and content on the right.

Once you save, check out your website. All of your posts, pages, and archives will have this same layout but the content will be the correct content.

Customizing in Design Mode

Before you get started, make sure you understand The Levels of Customization.

If you stick to this tutorial and only have one type of each block on your layout (or less) then you can style the regular element (because it is global and applies to ALL blocks of that type).

If you have more than one type of block on the layout, then you want to Edit the Instance.

Important

Make sure your content block is set to default mode or this layout will not work everywhere. When you add a content block, the mode is set to default automatically so unless you changed it, you won’t need to worry about this.
