Thank you for writing in!
The Font Manager's main advantage is that you will be able to get a font and be able to use it sitewide when you are using the Header, Footer, and Pro builder. If you are using Pro to build your posts, you should be able to use the fonts that you have set in the Font Manager to the V2 elements' (elements with more options and do not contain Classic on their name) font settings.
If you are not seeing the Font Settings options for the V2 elements, kindly double check your Advanced Mode option setting and make sure it's enabled.
Here is an article in our Knowledge Base that contains more details information about the Font Manager:
The Color and Font Managers are both available in X and Pro. What Pro has that X does not are the following:
- Header Builder
- Footer Builder
- Design Cloud
Please check this link for an intro video for the Header and Footer Builder
Unlike X, Pro does not have the import demo feature but to supplement that, Pro has the Design Cloud.
For the main blog page that you set in WP Admin > Settings > Reading > Your homepage displays > A Static Page > Post Page you may customize it using the options that you can find in Pro > Theme Options > Blog. Feel free to play with the settings until you get your desired main blog page layout.
As for the posts, if you use the default Wordpress editor, your customization option will be limited to the features that the Wordpress editor offers. To extend this, you may use the Pro Builder to create your posts.
By default, the Pro Builder (Cornerstone) is not enabled for Posts so you will have to put in the right permission from the Permissions Manager which you can find in Pro > Settings > Permissions.
If the button beside Posts is gray, click on it to enable it and it should turn green.
Save the Permission settings and when you go to Post > Add New you should have three editor options which are Text/HTML/Pro. Click on Pro then edit the post using Pro.
If you build the page using the Pro builder you will have the full control of the post content layout.
I am not certain which category are you referring to this. Is it the widgets that are on the right sidebar? If so, what you want should be how the categories with subcategories should be displayed just like this:
Since your widget is not displaying that way, please check the following.
1. Make sure that you have assigned the correct hierarchy of the categories in WP Admin > Post > Categories. Please check here to know how to assign parent and children categories.
2. If you have alreayd set the parent and child categories, go to WP Admin > Appearance > Widgets > Main Sidebar > Category Widget and enable the Show hierarchy option.
You may use the SuperFly menu that is one of the bundled plugins with Pro. You can install it in Pro > Validation.
Here is the documentation for the Superfly Menu: http://superfly.looks-awesome.com/docs/Getting_Started
I am not sure about this item as well but if you mean having different font sizes to the sidebar text, it is possible but it will require some custom CSS.
If you will install the Superfly Menu, once you click the menu button, the menu will slide from the side.
If you will use the Orginal Header in Pro > Theme Options > Header you may set the Navbar Position setting to Fixed Left or Fixed Right.
If you mean that the header stays on top as you scroll through the page, this is also possible through the original header and Pro Header Builder.
For the original header, you will need to choose Fixed Top for the Navbar Position in the Theme Options setting.
If you will use Pro, edit the Bar settings then set the Sticky Bar options to on.
There are only two default blog layout options in Pro. you can find it in Pro > Theme Options > Blog > Style. Currently, you are using the Masonry style which lets you control how many columns to display but the height of each post will be displayed according to the space avaiable. If you use the Standard style, you can only have one column of blog posts.
If you really want your blog page to be displayed like the screenshot you posted, you might want to check out some bundled plugins in Pro like the Essential Grid and The Grid. These two plugins will provide you some more layout and display options and more customization.
Please check these links for reference:
You may set up either of the two then create a new page that will be your blog page and put in the shortcode to the page and that will be your main blog index page.
We have recently release an article in our KB about Gutenberg that you might want to check:
To simply put it, the header is the entire area that is on the top of the site and the menu is inside the header.
There is another bundled plugin that can do this which is the ConvertPlus plugin.
No worries. Feel free to ask us if you have any question, we're always happy to help!
