Install the Demo Content (optional)

If you are starting a brand new site… your site will look nothing like the demo. Uploading the themes demo content is a great way to get started. You will be able to delete what you don’t want and keep what you need. This is optional. You are welcome to skip this step and move to “Header & Menu Bar” below.

Header & Menu Bar

The Homepage is created with widgets in the FRONT PAGE widget sections. Follow this tutorial to set your homepage to look like the demo site.

Blog Posts

  • How to Add the “Share This” Buttons
  • After Entry widget – you can place any widget in this widget area such as user profile, advertisement, or instagram widget. It will show at the bottom of every post, before the comments. I used the “Genesis – User Profile” widget on the demo site. Find the After Entry widget in Appearance >> Widgets.



  • Footer Social Menu
  • Footer Call to Action – while in Appearance >> Widgets… click on “Custom HTML” widget then choose “Footer Call to Action” from dropdown. Copy/paste the following code into that widget and change the info to your own info. Click “Save” when done.
