1.1.      Social Icons

You can add Social Icons that appear in the top bar, sidebar and in the footer. Simply click Add New button to add more social icons. All you have to set is the title, icon and the URL. All available icons can be seen at Font Awesome website.

1.2.    404 Error page and Footer

This is the place to set text for your 404 pages and the copyright in lower footer section.

1.3.    Import

Simply choose the layout you wish and Import the demo content and settings for the Theme. If auto import doesn't work for some reason please follow the instructions in the Import Tab.

2.           Galleries

Galleries are a vital part of the Theme and are implemented through the Essential Grid plugin. It's a premium plugin from ThemePunch and is probably number one plugin when it comes to displaying various content formats in a highly customizable grid. We used it because of it's high customizability and possibility to easily implement grid galleries from your social networks. Plugin itself has extensive documentation and you can access it here.

If you imported demo content for galleries also, you can edit them in Ess. Grid tab in WordPress:

After you click on settings for each particular gallery you can than set Name and Source of the gallery. In our Theme we used two different kind of sources. One is from categories and posts that you can create specifically for Galleries under Ess. Grid Example Posts. This is separated from normal posts so there is no confusion.

The other source that we used is Stream. After you select it new options will open with the possibility to add a grid from your Social network.


Probably the most important tab when it comes to designing your gallery. Most of the settings are intuitive so simply choose your layout, grid layout and media ratio. Beneath under Columns are important settings for displaying your gallery on

different screen sizes.  Great thing about Essential Grid is that you can have different mobile and deskotp appearance for different galleries.


You can add several navigation filters like categories, search, forward buttons. We only used categories in our demos since we wanted to keep it clean and simple.


Another important settings are skins. This is where "the magic" happens when it comes to displaying and animation. There are almost 50 predefined skins to choose from.

If you want to make additional changes to chosen skin, you need to first choose it and save the settings. After that go back to first page of Essential grid and click on Edit Skin.

New window will open where you can edit everything about the skin. Settings might seem a bit complex at first, but possibilities really are endless. To begin familiarizing with the settings you can click on the TITLE and than Style tab. You can now edit Font size, color, family, weight and much more.

These are basic steps to set up your own gallery. As you will dive further and deeper into all the settings of Essential Grid you will see why this plugin is probably the best one for displaying your galleries in grids.

To read more about the plugin, you can check their website and for further documentation head over to their specialized documentation and support page.

3.            Setting  up the Home Page

After you decide what page do you want to use, go to Settings > Reading and in the Front page displays choose "Your latest posts". After this, you should change the Blog pages show at most value from 10 to 3-5 posts (for the same appearance as in our live demo). This theme works best with this setup. Hit “Save Changes” and you’re done.

Next, you should setup your permalinks to look pretty. Please go to Settings > Permalinks, choose the Custom Structure, and use this: /%category%/%postname%/

READ THIS about permalinks on Windows Servers!

4.           Navigation and Menu Settings

The last step before you can start working with the new theme is to create your menu. Go to Appearance > Menus and you will see a panel where you can create new menus. Create one, add your created pages to it (from the left side panels) and save it. Now set the locations for the menu that you just created. The main menu will probably be set at Main Menu, Responsive Menu and Scroll Menu.

4.1.    Customizing Menu Item

The Navigation Label – this field specifies the title of the item on your custom menu. This is what your visitors will see when they visit your site/blog
