Use its Contact Info feature to make it easy for customers to get in touch.
Easily give your visitors a “call to action” with our Featured Prompt feature for small businesses.
To get your site going, we’ve made a few more little movies to quickly explain the main capabilities of your WordPress site.
Personalize your site by uploading your business’ logo. To do this, navigate to Customize → Site Identity and upload an image from your computer. After the image uploads, you can adjust its size using the Logo Size control. Your logo will appear centered above the Site Title.
If your logo includes your site’s name or you only want to display your logo in the header, you can hide the theme’s default Site Title and Tagline by unchecking “Display Site Title and Tagline” in the same Site Identity panel.
Radcliffe 2 helps you promote your most important message right on the front page — use a headline, a brief description, and prominent link to drive visitors where you want them to go. Your message will display on the front page of your site, below the navigation menu. To set up this feature, navigate to Customize → Featured Prompt.
It’s important to let customers know how they can reach your business. With Radcliffe 2 includes a site-wide banner with your contact details, which you can display in either the header or the footer of your website. To add your address, hours, and contact details, navigate to Customize → Contact Info. Aside from your hours of operation, all the information will be automatically turned into clickable links so you customizer can call, email, or find you on a map with a single click.
The style pack options include (from right to left) “Modern Bauhaus,” “Vintage Paper,” and “Upbeat Pop.” To choose a style pack, navigate to Customize → Style Packs and pick your perfect fit!
Radcliffe 2 supports a handy Social Links menu, which appears in the header, to the right of the main navigation.
Linking to any of the following sites will automatically display its icon in your menu:
- Email (mailto: links)
- RSS Feed (urls with /feed/)
Radcliffe looks its best when you assign a Featured Image to your posts. Featured Images appear full-width, as a background to the post header information. We recommend using images at least 2000px wide by 1500px tall to get a clear, crisp picture.
Radcliffe 2 offers three optional widget areas, located just above the footer, which you can configure via Customize → Widgets. You can use them to add features you want to show up on all pages on your site: a form to follow your blog, your contact information with a map, and even embed content from your social media accounts, like Instagram and Twitter.
Quick Specs (all measurements in pixels):
- The main column width is 740.
- Featured Images for posts and pages should be at least 2000 in width and 1500 in height.
- The default Site Logo size is 1200 width by 900 height, but you can adjust the cropping and size to match your logo.
