Overview

Boardwalk: Homepage

Meet Boardwalk, a flexible, versatile, and responsive theme designed to show off your content in an unconventional — yet elegant and creative — way.

Menus

Boardwalk allows you to have two Custom Menus: one in the theme’s slide-out sidebar (Primary Menu) and one in the footer (Social Menu), which can be setup through the dashboard, or the Customizer.

Primary Menu

Note: The instructions for the next steps are referring to the WP Admin dashboard. You can get to this dashboard by adding /wp-admin to the end of your site’s url (e.g.: example.wordpress.com/wp-admin)

To add descriptions underneath the menu items, go the Customizer → Menus, click the cog wheel icon, and check the Description option, this will enable a Description field for each menu items.
