Go to Appearance → Customize → Site Title to upload a logo image, which will appear next to the site title in the header area.


Custom Menu

You can set up a custom menu under Appearance → Menus. For detailed instructions, see Custom Menus. This theme has two menu locations available, “Main Menu” and “Footer Menu”.

Social Icons

Go to Appearance → Customize → Theme and add profile links for your favorite social networks.


Customize the Background

On single pages and posts, the Featured Image for each page or post will be the background image. If you don’t want a background image, do not add a Featured Image to that page or post.

On the front page, you can embed a YouTube video or an image slider as the background.

To embed a YouTube video in the background of the front page, go to Appearance → Customize → Theme. Add the YouTube video URL in the field and the video will play without audio in the background.

Alternatively, to have an image slider as the front page background:

  1. Navigate to Appearance → Customize → Featured Content.
  2. Enter the name of a tag.
  3. Click the blue Save button at the bottom.
  4. Create a post with a large featured image.
  5. Give the post the tag you declared under Appearance → Customize → Featured Content.


Portfolio Page Template

This theme supports the Portfolio feature. Create some portfolio items, then create a new page and assign it the “Portfolio Page” template under Page Attributes to see your Portfolio in action.

Widget-Only Front Page Template

As you can see in the theme demo, we have a simple text widget on the front page. To set this up:

  1. Create a new page and assign it the “Widget-Only Front Page” template under Page Attributes.
  2. Set your new page as a Static Front Page under Settings → Reading.
  3. Go to Appearance → Widgets and add a text widget with some content to the “Front Page Widget” location.
