Step 1: Add some authors!
From your wordpress dashboard, create accounts for your authors.
To do this, go to Users -> Add New.
Now go to Users->All Users. Find the new users, hover over the name, and see “edit” appear. click edit.
Now scroll to the bottom of the form, see the section
Custom profile information by XOXO
enter a twitter name if you have one (like @aliseya).
and check the box if you want this author to show up on the home page.
Step 2: Create Categories for your top navigation menu
In wordpress, you make new posts (articles), and put them in categories. so before we make a post, let’s make some categories.
in the admin dashboard, go to Posts->Categories.
give the new category a name, a slug, and at the bottom, check the box to show it in the navigation.
it won’t show up yet. that’s because there are ZERO articles posted to this category.
make a few categories (you can always delete them later) and check the box to show it in the navigation.
now that you have a few categories that are pinned to your navigation, let’s make an article (post).
go to Posts->Add New
enter a title, and some text. the important thing is to add a category (see the red circle). you can add more than one. then hit the blue publish button (above the red circle).
now that you’ve posted an article in the category, you’ll see the category link at the top of your website!
Step 3: Add featured products
This is a feature unique to this theme. The photos and products that show up on the right hand side of the home page are there because they are posted to the “Featured Products” category.
To create a product here, go to Posts -> Add New. Give your post a title, a featured image, and put it in the “Featured Products” category. Finally, and most important, in our custom product link section, include the link to where people can buy the product. Hit “Publish” and your product post will be created.
Step 4: Customizing the links at the bottom of the page.
To do this, go to Appearance -> Menus.
Create a new menu.
Now in the box on the top left, it will say “Your theme supports 1 menu, Select which menu you would like to use.” In the drop down titled “Bottom Section Menu” select the new menu you just created. Now this menu will show up at the bottom.
