Setting up the theme (Video)

To make the theme look like in the demo you need to follow these steps:
1) First create your Blog and Home pages, then go to Settings > Reading and select your Home page as the front page and the Blog page as the posts page.
2) Be sure you install the recommended plugins. They are free and great and some necessary.
3) This is the code I’m using for the contact form. Don’t forget to install first the Contact Form 7 plugin. It’s basically the Contact Form 7 standard code with two divs, cleft and cright for styling and positioning the form on the page

<div class="cleft">
<p>[text* your-name placeholder "Name"]</p>
<p>[email* your-email placeholder "E-Mail"]</p>
<p>[text your-subject placeholder "Subject"]</p>
</div>
<div class="cright">
<p>[textarea your-message placeholder "Message"]</p>
<p>[submit "Send"]</p>
</div>

4) You have one menu area, be sure to set it asap.
5) You have some great widgets packed with the theme, don’t let them rust, they are great.
6) You have one sidebar area.
7) You have a portfolio custom post type for your great and awesome work, a team custom post type for your team members, and a clients custom post type, where you can password protect any client page and share the password only with your client.

 

You have a couple of great template files. Use the contact template file for your contact form, the portfolio template file for your portfolio showcase page, the team page for your team members page and the page with scrollbar for any page that you want to have a fixed width.

You have a lot of theme options. Just test them, nothing bad will happen, you have my word, they are great. Here you can upload a logo, add site author and site tags meta information ( good for SEO ), add a site favicon and apple icons, set the background slider and add the homepage page quotes ( when setting the homepage quotes don’t add any line breaks ( ENTER’s ), it will break the code ), change some site colors and in the contact section add google map location and location description/information.
