Navigation

Site navigation will display all pages and categories together. There is no drop down support for default navigation. If you were behind of a dropdown menu option, please mark Switch navigation with a custom menu on theme options page, and create your custom navigation.

As you have probably noticed, we have a description line below navigation links on our live demo. These description lines can easily be added to your navigation as well. To have them included use

  • Category description for categories
  • A custom field value with key subtitle for pages.

You must use theme options page on Admin dashboard -> Appearance -> Theme options -> Navigation section to exclude unwanted links from site header. You will need to use ID number of pages/categories to exclude them.Here you’ll find a tutorial for that

If you have a page, that has sub-pages and you want to display theme -> edit your page and below the update/publish button look for template file name Page – Subpagelinks at top.

Featured Slider

There are various slides you can create for the featured slider. Here’s how:

Full-Column Slide – Assign the category for your featured slider. Then, create a custom field with the following values:
name = fullcol
value = true

Fullcol-slide
All other slides are standard. Below we show you how to insert buttons in the slides.
