    I cannot get a grid page, even though I am assigning the grid template to pages. It doesn’t work at all and I have tried for days to get this to work

    The blog I need help with is natureguild.wordpress.com.

    Did you read the replies in the earlier forum thread you posted into? Specifically this one https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/using-grid-layout-on-the-new-motif-theme?replies=9#post-1586802

    Hello natureguild and justjennifer!

    Jboydston did explain it all much better than I did, so try to create your grid that way.

     
    Down on the support page, “Featured Images” I found more about the image sizes
    Note: If your featured image doesn’t appear after following the instructions above, please make sure that it meets the size requirements outlined here.
    Motif theme:

      Posts and pages: 705 x 435.
      Front page template: 1140 x 610.
      Full width and grid page template: 1072 x 435.
      Testimonials thumbnail: 90 x 90.

    S: If you want to display some existing static pages (must include a featured image in any case) on to the new grid you just created, you can do so but you’ll need to use the “next page” tag very soon in the content, in order to shorten and display it as an excerpt on to the grid (front side)
