Usage of Templates This theme provides various template files for specific content. For example a static homepage with an image slider and featured content, an email contact form, an archive page and a guest book. Moreover a template for fullwidth content is being offered. Using this template disables the sidebar on the specific site and stretches the content to full width. For setting up a site template go to "Pages" -> "Add New" in the WordPress backend. Enter a title and content (optional) and select one of the five templates in the "Template"-selector in the box "Page Attributes". If the attribute box is not being displayed, go to "Screen Options" in the upper right corner and make sure, that the checkbox for the attribute box is checked. Publish the page and add a link to your navigation to make the page accessible for your visitors. 2. Setting up the header navigation By default all your pages will be displayed in the header navigation. To create a custom menu go to "Appereance" -> "Menus" Enter a name for the menu and click "Create Menu". Select the content that shuld be displayed in your navigation and click "Save Menu". Now got to the selector "Theme Locations" on the left, select the menu you created before and click "Save". Now your custom menu should be displayed on the front end. 3. Using Widgets The Theme provides four widget areas, on in the sidebar and three in the website's footer. Simply drag and drop the widget you want to show to the appropiate widget area.
