Add Communities or Neighborhoods

Communities or Neighborhoods can be added to your website just like any WordPress Post or Page.

Please see the WordPress Editor sections to learn about the different WordPress Editor Settings.

Note: If you don’t see the Sidebar in the Editor, you will need to first click on the Settings Icon.

Communities Editor

Communities images should be at least 720px wide; we use 1200px wide in the demo site, so that it looks well on all screens.

In the WordPress dashboard, click on Communities > Add New.

Then add:

  • 1 – a Title
  • 2 – add block content in the editor (or paste content from Word or Google Docs)
  • 3 – add a Featured Image
  • 4 – add a Community Type (optional; see below for how to first create Community Types)
  • 5 – Click the Publish button twice.

Control Featured Images and Titles

My Community Pro makes use of a new image and title features from Genesis. Read more on Genesis Settings .

When you are on the block editor page:
Click on the G in the World icon in the upper right.
