Reordering the featured page elements : title, image, text, button

Note : the following code snippet requires advanced WordPress developer skills. There's no guarantee that this snippet works as is with the latest version of our themes, and with the latest version of WordPress. That's why you need to always test any code snippets in a staging environment before implementing it in a production site.

Updated : works fine with Featured Pages Unlimited v1.4+

The featured pages are composed by 4 blocks ordered as follow by default :

  1. Image
  2. Title
  3. Excerpt (or custom text)
  4. Button

With the following snippet you can define a new order for those blocks. Just change the order of the items in the $my_item_order  array in the code below.


In this example, the title is moved before the image.


Where to paste this code? => in your functions.php file. I strongly recommend to create a child theme. Download a start-up child theme here.

    Hey , thanks for the great post, I am tryin to get the featured image to display on my pages and posts after the title. can you please tell me a way to achieve it.

    I’m quite new to wordpress and I haven’t got a strong IT background. I love the customizr theme – it’s perfect.
    However, there is one little niggle. I don’t prefer how the post summaries appear on a page – in an alternating way i.e. Post 1: Image then text, Post 2: Text + Image, etc

    How can I change this?

  • Teri Morris

    Hi Rocco, I have it sorted. I’m not sure why the file wasn’t being picked up. But I changed it directly from within WordPress (appearances>editor>functions.php). The code above is good. Thanks for your help. Teri

      Hello Tery,
      glad you solved. Most likely was a caching issue. Probably a cached W3TC page was loaded.


  • Teri Morris

    Hi, I’m using a child theme of Customizr. After I updated WordPress, my Featured Pages didn’t work. I upgraded Featured Pages and they came back but not like they did before the upgrade. Previously I used a code snippet in functions.php to get the title moved before the image. It was slightly different than what is listed above but, when I initially implemented it in Sept 2013, it worked well.

    I’m trying to get back to having the title above the image. I updated functions.php to use the code exactly as above but it’s not working. Can you help pls? I also emptied cache in case this was causing a problem. System info here:

      Hello Teri,
      I went to your page and I can see that you’re not using the code above, but maybe still an older version.
      That’s the code you have in your page:

      Did you try to clean the W3 Total Cache cache?

      • Teri Morris

        Hi Rocco, that is the older code. I definitely cleared the cache. I was going to do this again ‘just in case’ but there was no option as the cache had been cleared. How did you find the old code? I’m wondering if WP is looking in a new location.

        When I originally set this up in 2013, I used a plugin to create the child theme which is located in a themes sub-folder of wp-content called customizr-child. I definitely have the new code but it doesn’t seem to be picking it up.
