Adding descriptions to menu items
The theme’s navigation allows a small description to be displayed below each menu item. To enable this, in the admin panel go to Appearance > Menus, expand the menu items and enter its description in the field called “Title”. This will then automatically be converted into a description to be displayed below the menu item.
Adding thumbnails to posts
The theme supports the built-in WordPress featured images functionality. To add a thumbnail, when editing a post, open the upload tool, select the image you wish to set as thumbnail and select “Use as Featured Image”. Note that thumbnails appear only in blog post lists. To display then in single posts you need to insert them manually.
Adding posts to the slider
The slider displays sticky posts as featured. Mark the posts you wish to add to the slider as sticky
and they will be added automatically. Note that this mode disables the normal post order with sticky posts on top
and sticky posts will appear only in the slider.
Adding a Logo
The theme uses WordPress built-in custom header functionality to handle logos. To add a logo to your website, go to Appearance > Header and upload your desired image. You can then adjust the image’s width but not the height. The optimal size for logos is 196×48 pixels. Note that you need at least WordPress version 3.4 to benefit from this functionality.
