[Getting Started | Help & Guides]
This section provides some basic steps for getting started. It is recommended that you follow these steps for a better start. Also, don’t forget to check the buttons below the instructions for more information and to make the most out of your new theme.
You can change or update your theme background colors right from WordPress Customizer. This option will vary depending on which theme is activated on your website. Just pick the color you want. Use the Default button in case you’d like to revert to the default colors.
Custom Color Variables
With the Custom Color Variables settings built right into WordPress Customizer, you can now change the default colors used across the entire theme globally and/or in one place. Set the color for the Top Head, Header Bar, Menu Custom, Sub Menu Custom, Footer, and Copyright. Define your project/brand colors in one place and keep everything nice & organized.
Click the Default button next to the color code inside each option if you want to reset it back to the theme’s original color.
Typography plays an important role in the design. Beautiful fonts create a better user experience, increase engagement, and boost time users spend on your site.
Typography allows you to tweak typography to suit your needs. You can use Google Fonts in our theme. You can change typography on your site without writing any code. It also allows you to control the typography on your WordPress site by adding a Typography tab in the theme customizer. Using the typography tab, you can change fonts while viewing a live preview of your changes. You can select font sizes, colors, padding, border, and much more.
Site Identity & Upload Logo
You can set your site title, tagline, and upload your site icon (favicon) here. If you have activated a theme that doesn’t include the Header Image setting (see below), you can also choose whether you’d like to display an Image logo or Dynamic text for your site title. Almost all our themes, however, do include the Header Image setting.
Most of our themes come with custom background support via WordPress Customizer that allows you to easily set a background image to your WordPress site.
To add or change a background image, click on the Background Image option. The panel will now slide in and show you the options to upload or select a background image for your website. Select one and hit Publish to apply your image.
Click Default to reset it to the original settings in case you want to undo all your changes.
You can create and edit menus, as well as manage their location, within the Customizer. The available menu locations will depend upon which theme is activated on your site.
Click Menu Locations to see the available locations in your theme.
Use the drop-downs to select a navigation menu to display in each available location. Or, if you prefer, you can set both locations to “Select” (in other words, turn them off) and use a Custom Menu widget in a widget area instead.
Click Add a Menu to create a new menu. Alternatively, you can click on the name of an existing menu to edit it.
– Give the new menu a name and click Create Menu.
– Click Add Items to begin adding links to the navigation menu.
– Click the titles to open the expanded view of the options or use the search field to locate items for the menu. When you’re finished adding all the menu items, click Save & Publish to preserve your settings.
Some themes offer unique widget areas where you can add widgets to display important information. The exact widget areas available will depend upon which theme is currently active on your site.
Click on any available widget area to open a new panel where you can add and configure widgets.
In the new, open panel, click Add a Widget to display the available widgets that you can add to this widget area.
You’ll see a list of all the available widgets you can add to the available widget areas. You can click directly on any widget you’d like to add. Scroll down the list or use the Search widgets box at the top to locate the one you’d like to use.
Note: You can click the Collapse link at the bottom corner of the screen to temporarily hide the Customizer and preview your changes in full-screen mode.
After selecting a widget, you can configure it however you’d like and then click Save & Publish to preserve your changes.
You can also click Reorder to rearrange the widgets into the order you prefer or to select a new widget area to move the widget into.
Click Done when finished and then click Save & Publish to preserve your changes.
Home page settings
The default setting for the front page is Your latest posts. This setting allows you to display a blog-style front page. You can, however, select any page in your site to be displayed as the front page instead of your latest posts.
If you select A static page, you can select which existing page on your site will be displayed on your front page.
You can also select which page will display your blog posts. This page should be different from the one you’ve selected for the static front page and should not be set to use the Blog Page template.
* PLEASE NOTE: If your theme uses the front page to display widgets, the widgets will be displayed regardless of which setting you choose here. If you prefer to display your latest posts or a static page on your front page, you’ll need to remove all widgets from all front page-related widget areas.
