DigiMag

Thank you for using DigiMag to build your beautiful website. In this documentation, we will show you how to install and setup the basic demo for your website. This takes you only 5 minutes to have the website ready!

#Installation

We have written a very detailed guide on how to download and install a WordPress theme, please follow the instruction in that article.

IMPORTANT:

In order to make the theme works properly, you need to install the Jetpack plugin. Simply go to the Dashboard → Plugins → Add New. The plugin will appear in the list below, click Install Now button to install it.

After activating Jetpack, you need to connect to WordPress.com to use it (it requires you to create an account on wordpress.com – which is free). If you don’t want to create an account on wordpress.com, you can enable the Jetpack development mode.

You can add a custom logo by going to Customize → Site Identity and uploading your own logo image.

Top navigation appears next to the search form at the top. To set it up, simply create a new menu via Customize → Menus and assign it to the Top location.
