Getting Started

After activating your theme, visit the Customizer to set up the theme as you wish. Here you can change the site title and tagline, layout, colors, background, widgets, static front page, and featured content.

When changing the tagline in the Site Identity panel, keep in mind that the tagline will be affected both within the header and footer areas.

To set up the Featured Content area, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Customizer.
  2. Click on the Featured Content panel.
  3. Add a word to the Tag name field. Any post with this tag will display in the Featured Content area. (We suggest using “featured” as the tag to keep things simple.)

  4. Select from the other available customization options; you can choose to hide the custom tag from displaying on posts and tag clouds, and display tag content in all listings.
  5. Click the Save and publish button and close the Customizer.
  6. Edit a post that you would like to add to a tag using the custom word you set in Step 3.
  7. Update the Post.
