Now that the menu’s are set up, we need to set a static front page.

Go to Theme Customiser and select Static Front page, set the Front Page display to ‘Static Page’ and select the home page of your choice in the drop down box of the ‘Front Page’. Then save.

 

Blog Post Set up

There are no layouts in the library for the posts. The theme uses the native WordPress wyzywig editor. Select the sidebar you want to in the top metabox to the right.

Footer
