hi, as you know i have installed your demo, its my first website and i though it would be easier if i had something there that i could edit to my needs, im having trouble with a few of the pages, for example the theme members, as im a photographer i just want to create something similar but just only me, how do i edit those boxes or in fact create them, ive looked if there were any widgets but i cant find any.
Hello, i'm glad to help you.
It's a good idea that you have imported the demo content to get better knowledge about how to use the theme.
Our theme is pretty complicated for the start but after some time working with it, you will understand that it has lots of possibilities that simple wordpress can not offer you.
In the same time, i will always be here, ready to answer you as quick as i can and sole your problems.
Now, let me tell you some information about teams, team groups, and how to display them.
First of all "teams" is a custom post type and it's elements can be grouped in groups. As an analogical example are posts and categories.
A team element consist of a featured image, title, description and some social information (facebook, linkedin, twitter.)
Here is how you can add/edit/ delete them: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bx-zWn9i4kGMZ0lKaVdmVzdlMWs/edit?usp=drivesdk
The teams elements can be displayed in block only by groups. You can not display a team member alone. Only the member group is aloud in the template builder.
From the back menu > Tripod > Templates, select the template on which you want this team group to be displayed and add a row in the content part, select it's width in columns if you don't want it to be displayed on full width.
then edit the new element to the following configurations: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bx-zWn9i4kGMY1N6a3NJQ0NUNEE/edit?usp=drivesdk
Update the template.
This builder is a better replacement for widgets/shortcodes. In the same time it includes the possibility to add shortcodes and widget sidebars.
let me know if you don't understand how the templates works so i will try to explain you the templates and layouts.
