      Thank You

  2. Yeah You Got My Exact Point Bro! actually i’m super Confused About “AMP”
    Now My all confusions are Gone, Thank You very Much Brother!
    Rock On 😎😎😎

  3. Brother Which Plugin You are useing On Makeing Email – Newsletter Section??? Can You Please share The Plugin Name?

  4. Can you tell me if I turn off the Featured Image option on Generatepress for single posts and add featured image manually between paragraphs then will it be okay for SEO?

    Or having an image inside the article is good enough with proper title and alt tag?

    Please reply.

    • What I do is I set featured images for social networks like Facebook, Twitter, the article with big thumbnail appears.

      I use the same featured image inside the post rather than on the top of the post title or below the post title because I want above the fold part to be fast.

      • Thanks for your swift reply, i really liked this because usually many sites don’t. I wish great success for your future endeavors. I used Typography to change font size but it had no effect so i added some CSS code & it worked. In single posts title Typography is working fine, Only Homepage Posts Titles Typography was ineffective by Typography controls, I wonder why ? I used this hook for my Homepage layout.

        @media(max-width: 768px) {
        body:not(.single) .inside-article {
        display: grid;
        grid-template-columns: 40% 60%;

        .entry-header {
        grid-row: 1;

        .post-image {
        grid-column: 1;
        margin-top: 0 !important;
        margin-bottom: 0 !important;
        margin-right: 2em !important;
