Throne theme provides several layouts you can connect to various templates across the website. To manage global options for your layouts, go to Theme Options -> Main Layouts section.
Almost every archive (post listing) template may combine featured area with one of other layouts provided (A,B,C,D). You have 12 different layout/grid options for your featured area (as shown on image below). By default, the featured area will display your latest posts, which means that if you choose “3 posts inline” option, 3 latest posts will be displayed inside the featured area, with other posts displaying on other layouts below featured area.
The only exception is your Home Page which may not show your latest posts and you have some more options for the featured area when you go to Theme Options -> Home Page section.
Layouts A, B, C and D
These are four main post listing layouts which you can choose from to connect to specific templates on the website.
