Editorial Avenue

Theme Update

If you’ve purchased the Editorial Avenue theme in the past, you are welcome to upgrade to the new Kadence theme version. This theme uses a different framework than the one you have been using. There will be a learning curve but the tutorials will provide information as well as videos on how to use this new theme. Click here to view the new updated demo.

If you would like the updated Kadence theme, please visit my support page and enter your name and order number so that I can find your previous purchase. I can then provide you with the new theme files free or charge.

Please follow the tutorials below to create your site just like the demo. If you run into problems or have questions while following the tutorial please let us know. Don’t forget to submit your site to our Showcase page when you are done. We would love to see how your site looks!

Homepage

Shop My Style

You will first need to have an account with ShopStyle CollectiveRewardStyle, or a similar Style site. After your account is activated you can create a product widget within your Style account (see Support from your Style site on how to do this). Once the widget is created… the Style site will give you an HTML/Javascript code. Copy that code. *The demo site is using ShopStyle Collective.

Next, login to your WordPress dashboard and click on “Appearance” >> “Widgets”. Click on “Custom HTML” then choose “Shop My Style” from the dropdown. Paste the code you copied from your Style Account. Click “Save” then view your site.
