Handcraft Expo - WordPress theme documentation Copyright (C) 2015 _Y_Power Copying and distribution of this file, with or without modification, are permitted in any medium without royalty provided the copyright notice and this notice are preserved. This file is offered as-is, without any warranty. ____________________________________________ TABLE OF CONTENTS: - Introduction - Customizer - Templates - Credits ____________________________________________ INTRODUCTION: Handcraft Expo is a free (as in freedom) WordPress theme which focuses on effective communication design by merging well-established concepts with the use - and abuse - of graphical effects. A traditional, solid left sidebar concept spin-off aimed to 'streamline what really matters'. The project was born with the specific need to highlight handcrafts, hence its name. Layouts: The theme switches from a 'standard' left sidebar layout on +1180px(w) and +767px(h) screens to a 'pocket' layout on smaller sizes and handheld devices. IMPORTANT: SELECT YOUR MENUS BEFORE CUSTOMIZING. Colors: Though the theme allows you to customize most colors, it still tries to preserve an 'intelligent' relationship between elements: it is then highly recommended to choose a color for each proposed entry (even for items you are not going to show on the website) to help Handcraft Expo complete its 'virtual palette'. Highlights: # GNU GPL v3; # WordPress Customizer options-packed: easily adjust the website's look; # Highly animated: graphical aid to help you explain single menu items; # Styled horizontal custom menu on top widget; ____________________________________________ CUSTOMIZER: -- Site Identity -- Show title and tagline: When "On Banner" is selected, title and tagline will be visible ONLY if you select a banner image first (Background -> Banner Image). Title position: When "On Banner" is selected, title and tagline will be visible ONLY if you select a banner image first (Background -> Banner Image). NOTE: Handcraft Expo does NOT support WordPress Custom Headers. Title offsets: 'pocket' layout will always display centered title and tagline. Title hover effect: Choose a title and tagline animation when mouse-hovering; NOTE: Title SCALE effect amount and Title ROTATE effect amounts are ONLY active when either "Color, scale and rotate" or "Full" or title hover effect is selected. -- Logo -- Logo: If a logo is uploaded, it will be placed on the Menu Sidebar, on page center in 'pocket' layout and will also become a clickable link to the homepage. -- Background -- Choose a banner, an image and a color for your website background. Banner images will display on top of the page and will force the background picture to be displayed on content area. When in 'standard' layout and without a 'banner' image, the theme should be setup by resizing the browser's window heigth just above the breaking point and making sure that all items in the menu sidebar are visible. NOTE: Handcraft Expo does NOT support WordPress Custom Backgrounds. -- Pages -- Display pages titles: choose where to display page titles. NOTE: some page templates might override this setting. Choose a content footer image: Handcraft Expo suggests to use ONLY images with low opacity and high transparency and contrast in order to resemble a watermark effect. -- Previewer -- Handcraft Expo's most recognizable feature, Previewer helps you communicate with your visitors by providing a customizable animated preview box when hovering on Sidebar Menu's links. Previewer can handle up to 8 link description fields (the 3rd is always reserved to "sticky" or latest post) and you can add a picture on any of them. NOTE: Due to its nature, Previewer will display in a slightly different position on every screen: adjust the offsets and try different window sizes to fit your specific communication needs. Previewer Background image: Handcraft Expo suggests to use ONLY images with low opacity and high transparency and contrast in order to resemble a watermark effect. -- Menu Sidebar -- Choose Menu Bar's transparency level, its border color and witdh and Menu Links font size. Note: will automatically adapt on smaller screens. Show Sidebar gradient: Suggested if using a full-screen background image. -- Widgets -- When activated, the widgets Sidebar will by default hide the sidebar and show a toggle button. NOTE: the theme should be setup by resizing your browser's window heigth just above the breaking point and making sure that all items in the menu sidebar are visible. And if you are emotionally attached to horizontal menus, Handcraft Expo offers a pre-styled custom menu on the Top Widget position. ____________________________________________ TEMPLATES: By default, Handcraft Expo pages display anchestor pages, author-post metadata and navigation: available templates for new pages are: # Front Page; # Blog; # 2 Columns; # Page (no navigation, no metadata); # Page (no title, no navigation, no metadata). # Transparent Page (transparent background, no navigation, no metadata). ____________________________________________ CREDITS: Richard Stallman: for the inspiration; Free Software Foundation: for the licences; WordPress: for the platform; Kevin from Graphinity Design: for the logo; My girlfriend: for the psychological support; Coffee: for the physical support; Default Previewer picture:
