  • How to add your own background patterns

    The best way to add your own background patterns is to copy them with FTP to the directory /images/bg of your theme’s directory so full path would look something like: wp-content/themes/themeName/images/bg. After you have done so, refresh the page where your admin is (F5). This is a simple refresh of the page and not reset of the theme’s options.

    You can now see your newly added background pattern in Theme’s Options -> Styling Options -> Background Pattern. This is the best way of adding the background pattern since you can add more patterns.

  • How to check which element to apply styling to with Google Inspect

    Many users will want to change certain aspects of theme (from headings to buttons, logo position, etc.). The hardest part when doing this is finding out which class you have to edit in style.css. This is where Google Inspect comes to the rescue. Other browsers have similar tools but in our opinion Google Inspect is the most convenient one.

    Open Google Chrome and position your mouse over the element that you wish to change. Right click on your mouse and then click Inspect. A window will open showing the location of the class in style.css. You can now play a bit and change some parameters on the fly to see how they would look (remember that this is only a virtual change and that you will have to edit and save style.css for changes to take affect). After you are happy with the changes you can now apply them to style.css and since you now know the exact line where the class is it should be a breeze.

    For editing style.css we recommend Notepad++, it is lightweight, will color your code and number the lines of the file.

  • How to translate your Theme

    Theme allows you to translate all the main aspects of the Theme (buttons, social icons,…). Go to translation tab of your Theme’s administration and find the word you would like to translate. After that simply enter your translation and save.

  • Theme options are overriding style.css

    This is how it is supposed to be. The theme uses two styling files. General styling is done with style.css but options that are defined through administration are saved to a file called options.css that can be found in CSS directory. To change these settings you have to edit the file called style_options.php. You will find a similar structure there so should be no problem if you already edited style.css.

  • Theme settings are not saving

    On some installations you have to save settings twice in order for them to take affect. So simply save twice and check if new settings are applied
