I have recently moved from Duotone to The Spun theme. I had thought that things would be easy and work as shown in the Demo for the theme.
Home page circles: In Customization, I chose the 'Your latest posts' as my front cover, thinking that the latest six to nine posts would show there, but they do not.
From Caroline Moore's own blog re The Spun theme:
Spun looks best if you set a featured image to represent each of your posts on the blog index and archives. If no featured image is assigned, the theme will attempt to pull the first attached image from the post. If the post does not have an image attached, the post title will be displayed.
By "blog index", I must presume she is referring to the home page. After reading the above, I went into my recent posts and set the Featured Image where I could (some of my posts' images link to my other blog), pressing the Update button to save changes. This did not produce any more circles than the one latest post circle on my home page.
I have set the Featured Image for my next six Scheduled posts. I hope they will show up on the home page, but I'm not hopeful.
Within Customization, I had also gone to Front, to see what was there. Two choices: Your latest posts, and Static page. Nothing about choosing how many circles would appear on the home page.
Of course, clicking onto the 'Older posts' button underneath the only home page circle brings up more, one at a time, so that one does end up showing however many, but they don't remain there.
Search box circles: Unfortunately, this only brings up the latest post and no more. I would have thought all posts for a tag/post title would show up when searching.
I hope you can help with these two issues. Thanks! :)
