    Is it possible to understand how to add Ezoic to a Popcorn Theme (FSE) site please – is it just adding the placeholders manually?

      Hi Jon,

      Follow Ezoic’s documentation and onboarding process. Their AI works really well with Popcorn. You can also manually add placeholders as well. Good luck!

    i have installed the theme and i’m stuck in adding a blog page from my site. How do i add a blog page without overriding the existing homepage?

      Hi Ibrahim,

      Add a blank page called ‘blog’ or whatever you want. Change your reading settings and set the blog to that empty page. The ‘Index’ template will then be used to show your blog roll.
