If you need help installing the theme visit the download and installation page.

Getting Started

When you activate the theme you get the option to run a start up script. Although primarily designed for new sites it does provide a way to initiate the features needed by the theme.

The set up creates dummy pages and posts, menus, updates the comment options and media location folder and initiates the homepage settings. Once complete all you really need to do is create a set of posts with examples of your work and the site is ready to roll.

Featured Images

Use posts to showcase your work. The top of each post will display the Featured Image for that post. This image will also be shown on the homepage. More information about featured images.

The Homepage

The default homepage displays a grid of images that link to your posts. These posts are where you show off your work. The images you see are the featured image for each post.

If you need to change the homepage settings go to Dashboard > Settings > Reading. Make sure the Your homepage displays option is set to Your latest posts to display the grid.

The Homepage Widget

The homepage widget is the one you see at the top of the homepage. You can put whatever you want in the widget but experience has shown that a short introduction with some key links is the best option. The colours and background image are set in the customizer.

The Call to Action box

This is a widget that will normally displays on the right of the homepage widget. To edit the content go to the widget page in your dashboard and select the CTA widget. The colours are set in the customiser. To make sure the widget display on the right the CTA widget needs to be the first widget in the widget area.

Theme Options

The options for the theme are in the Theme Settings and the Customizer. Both are found in the Appearance menu.

Theme Settings

The theme settings contain all the options for the contact form, analytics, testimonials and instructions on how to use the text toggles.

Customizer

The Customizer contains most of the layout options: colours, header and footer, social media and standard WordPress features.

To access the cutomiser from the dasboard go to the Appearance menu. If you are logged in when looking at your site you will also see the Customizer link in the admin bar at the top of the page:

If you can’t find what you want in the Theme Settings or Customizer then get in touch and I see what I can do.
