Floral

Thank you for using Floral theme for your website. We hope you like it! 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.

#Setup

#Header

Menu:

Go to Customizer → Menus, create a new menu and assign it to Header location.

Social Icons:

To set up the social icons, create another menu and add links to your social network profiles. Then assign it to the Social Menu location.

Note that these social icons will be used in the Footer.

IMPORTANT: You have install and activate the Jetpack plugin to see this.

Logo:

Go to Customizer → Site Identity and upload your logo.

#Featured Content Slider

First, create some posts and tag them with the same tag. We often use the featured tag, but you can use any tag you want.

Then go to Customizer → Featured Content and add the featured tag in the Tag name box. Save changes and you will see those posts are displayed in the slider on the homepage.

IMPORTANT: You have install and activate the Jetpack plugin to see this.

#Widgets

EightyDays works with default WordPress widgets. We also create a custom widget that you can use to display beautiful content in the sidebar like our demo:

  • Recent Posts widget

For Instagram widget, please install Instagram Slider Widget and add Instagram widget to the sidebar.

#Footer

The Footer display Instagram images and social links. The social links are the same as in the top bar. You don’t need to configure anything if you already did that for the top bar. See above for details.

To show Instagram images in the footer, please install Instagram Slider Widget and add Instagram widget to the Footer Instagram sidebar.

#Customization

We recommend using a child theme to customize the theme. Here is the guide how to do that.

In addition, you can customize the theme CSS by going to Customizer → Additional CSS.

If you want to customize the fonts, we have a powerful and easy-to-use plugin that can help you do that.

We hope you live Floral. If you have any question, please send us a support ticket. Happy blogging!
