Academic Theme: Add "featured media" on homepage

Hey! Sorry, I didn’t know whether to post this on Discord or here so I posted it to both. I was drawn to Academic because I like how it handles publications – a few featured publications on the homepage and a link to a longer list of publications:

I’m hoping to do the same thing with the “media” section of the page. So far, I have way too many media boxes on the homepage, and I want to keep, say, 3 on the homepage as “featured media” and move the rest to a separate longer list. Has anyone else done something like this and, if so, could you point me to instructions?


Hi there

Hugo Academic has its own support and own set of documentation. Suggest you go to the theme support or its community

I’m sorry if this isn’t the right form, but the help directs me here:

See “Ask a question on the forum” at

Should that statement be linked to another site?
