  • What is a child theme?

    A child theme is a theme that inherits all of the functionality and the styling of another theme – known as the parent theme. Child themes are the recommended method for modifying an existing theme as it leaves the parent theme untouched. Using a child theme also ensures that any modifications you’ve made won’t be overwritten when you install an update for the parent theme, which is exactly what would happen if you made your modifications directly to the parent theme.

    We’ve provided a simple child theme for all of our themes. The link to download these can be found in the documentation sections under “Child Theme”.

  • How can I create a separate page for my blog?

    1. Create and publish a page that you would like to use as your blog page.
    2. Navigate to Settings > Reading, set the “Front page displays” setting to “A static page” and select the page you wish to be your blog page from the “Posts page” dropdown.
    3. If this page isn’t already in your navigation menu, then go to Appearance > Menus and add it.
  • How can I create a backup of my site?

    A great backup tool is the free Duplicator plugin. It has an easy to use wizard interface and reduces an entire WordPress installation (the database, the themes that are installed, WordPress itself, etc.) to a zip file and a PHP installer file, essentially creating a snapshot of your whole site. This allows you to roll back to that point at any time.

  • How can I use Page Builder after updating my site to WordPress 5.0?

    WordPress 5.0 introduces the new Gutenberg content editor. We are currently in the process of making our themes Gutenberg compatible. You can get the classic editor experience with Page Builder by installing the official Classic Editor WordPress plugin.

  • Due to GDPR restrictions I’m not able to use Google Fonts on my site. Can I disable it?

    All of our Premium themes give you the ability to disable Google Fonts. You can read a comprehensive guide on disabling Google Fonts on your site here.

  • Why are all of the pages I create appearing in my navigation menu?

    This is happening because you have not yet set a primary menu for your site. To do so navigate to Appearance > Menus, create a new menu and set it’s display location to “Primary Menu”.

    You can now add pages, posts, products, custom links, etc. from the area on the left.

  • How do I create a blog?

    To create a new blog post just log in to your WordPress admin and navigate to Posts > Add New. You can assign a blog post to categories and you can add tags to your posts. Tags are essentially keywords that are relevant to your post.

    If you wish to set your homepage to display your blog posts navigate to Settings > Reading and set the “Front page displays” setting to “Your latest posts”.

    If you don’t wish to have your blog posts on your homepage all you need to do is create and publish a page that you would like to be your blog page. Then navigate to Settings > Reading, set the “Front page displays” setting to “A static page” and select the page you wish to be your blog page from the “Posts page” dropdown. If this page isn’t already in your navigation menu, then go to Appearance > Menus and add it.

    By default your blog page will display the posts in order of most recent to least recent. The reason for this is so that people visiting your blog will see the most recent post first rather than having to scroll down to the bottom of the page.

  • How do I set my homepage to be a static page?

    To set your homepage to display a static page that you’ve created rather than your posts navigate to Settings > Reading. There you will see a setting labelled “Front page displays”, set this to “A static page” and select the page you wish to use from the Front page dropdown.

  • How do I disable comments on a page?

    To do this just edit the page and click the “Screen Options” tab at the top right of the screen. A little slidedown will appear, check the “Discussion” option.

    Now you will see a checkbox at the bottom of the page that says “Allow comments”. Uncheck this and save the page. Your page will no longer display the feedback form.

    When you edit or add any future pages you will now see the “Allow comments” checkbox at the bottom of the page and can just deselect it for any pages that you don’t want to display the form.
