Change Content To Your Own

Your Kadence theme is installed and your ready to make it your own. Please watch the video below on how to change the images and content to your own.

Please watch this video on how to edit the icons and links for the social icons.

Note: If you do not have an email subscription service yet, I highly recommend ConvertKit (affiliate). That is who I use but you are welcome to choose any subscription service of your choice.

For the sake of this tutorial, I will be using ConvertKit to demonstrate how to add a subscription form to your Kadence Theme. You can use any email subscription service that you prefer (it does not have to be ConvertKit).

Create a Form Through Your Email Marketing Service

If you’re not sure of how to create a form through your email marketing service, simply Google “how to create form + [name of your email marketing service]” and there is bound to be a tutorial or Youtube video.

Form Placement

You can add your subscription form to any part of the site. It can go in the Header, Footer, Sidebar, etc. Just add a “Custom HTML” block wherever you’d like to display the form.

Blog Posts

Click on “Posts” to add, edit, or delete a blog post. It’s also very important that you add a “Featured Image” to every blog post as this will be used on the main blog page.

Look for “Featured Image” on the right side when you are creating a new or editing an existing blog post.

Categories

Categorizing your blog posts can be very helpful for your visitors. I’ve put together a blog post to explain what are categories and how to use them.

Sidebar

The sidebar is the section that sits to the right of your blog posts. To edit this info… click on “Appearance” then “Widgets”. Click on any of the widgets to edit the content in the sidebar.

Click here to follow the steps to setup the Instagram Feed section.

You have the availability to change the fonts and colors for any page or the entire site. Please watch this video to find out how.

If you would like to setup Shop pages on your site please follow the steps below.

Important: this theme is compatible to work with WooCommerce but we cannot offer any support for this plugin (besides the steps listed below) since this plugin is not created by us. If you need further assistance after completing these steps please contact WooCommerce 

If you installed the demo content (images, blog posts, page templates, etc.) then you can skip step 1 & 2. The WooCommerce plugin has already been installed on your site.

1. Log into your WordPress Dashboard and click on “Plugins” then “Add New” at the top of the page. In the search box type in “WooCommerce”.

2. Once you find it… click on “Install Now” then “Activate”.

Now you are ready to start setting up options and adding products. If you are new to WooCommerce… here are WooCommerce Tutorials on how to use WooCommerce.

3. Click on “WooCommerce” then “Settings” to make sure all the settings are correct with your address, shipping, and tax information.

4. Click on “Products” then “Add New” to create your very first product. Please refer to WooCommerce Tutorials if you need more help with this.

You can use the Block Collection when creating a new Page or Post. The Block Collection will give you access to all the blocks that were created and used for the making of the theme. This is how to access them:

1. Login to your Website.

2. Edit a Post/Page or create a new one.

3. Click on “Design Library” at the top left of the screen.

Troubleshoot

If for some reason the “Design Library” is not working… I’ve created a page where you can copy and paste the coded needed for each page in the demo site. Please click here for more info.
