Originally from ticket #71.
Good morning. I purchased your theme and I really like it! It’s packed with all kinds of features and loads very light for how multimedia rich it is.
However, even as a wordpress expert and a developer, I find it very difficult to get accustomed to customizing it at first. Your layouts and templates are confusing because they add new terms to Wordpress and a whole new structure to theming that is unusual, rather than selecting a template with the drop down when editing or creating a page.
With that said… I think you made a GREAT theme and I believe that once we can understand it better we will be able to use and appreciate the full power of it that you intended.
Can you please describe step-by-step how to make the home page to look exactly like this:
Hopefully this will also help me to understand the other options. Thank you in advance.
thank you for your wonderful words, we really appreciate that.
To make a gallery the Front Page, you should do next steps:
1. Create a new template (or edit an old one). Hide the default row and add a new row, with a gallery (I assume you have already one): http://i.imgur.com/zIkfn6F.png then http://i.imgur.com/bYi0zN0.png
2. Now, that we technically have a template that prints a gallery, let's change in Layouts the template for the Front Page: http://i.imgur.com/SW2Ubz3.png
3. If we access now our front page, we'll have our gallery right there: http://i.imgur.com/8q9b4NA.jpg .
So, the Gallery goes in a Row, the template row in a template, template in a layout, and the layout to the end user. You can also assign the template to a page, and when you'll access that page, you'll access the content (rows) of that template.
Hope that was it. If you have any more questions - please let me know.
Also, may I ask you for a small favor? If you really like our theme, can you please rate it on ThemeForest? It means a lot to us and it will motivate me and my team to release more upgrades and features.
Thank you in advance!
