Importing the demo content just imports the dummy content from the demo (sample pages, sample posts and sample images) into your dashboard and can be helpful if you are setting up a new site from scratch. But, you’ll still need to continue setting up your theme otherwise your site will be pretty bare!
You’ll still need to configure your settings and tell WordPress where you’d like what. I would recommend going through the tutorials if you haven’t already in order to select all of your desired settings.
You can display your whole post, or only a portion of each post with a link to continue reading.
To enable this:
1. Navigate to Appearance > Customize > Theme Settings > Content Archives
2. Under ‘select one of the following’ > select “Display entry excerpts” then,
3. Under ‘limit content to how many characters’ > type a number such as 200
Remember to check the box ‘display the featured image’ to display a photo on the blog page (And if no image displays on the blog page, check the blog post and make sure you have selected a featured image for each post)
The designs can be used as-is like the theme’s demo, which the theme’s tutorials show you how to recreate.
WordPress is very adaptable and anything can be accomplished. Kindly note, I am unable to provide support for any theme customizations, code or custom CSS – this would be a DIY endeavor.
If you would like to learn how to add additional features to your site, I recommend my course Womens Wicked WordPress.
The font sizes in your theme are determined by the font formatting in the theme’s code. But you can change some of the sizes without dipping into the themes files. You can choose the sizes of the Heading 1, Heading 2, all the way to Heading 6.
Alternatively, you can override the theme font sizes by adding custom CSS. Kindly note, I am unable to provide support for any theme customizations, code or custom CSS – this would be a DIY endeavor.
If you’re having trouble with the Instagram gallery try re-reading my steps in the theme tutorial to make sure you have the recommended settings and that your Instagram username is correct.
I recommend Light Widget or Smashballoon, but as third-party plugins, I can’t guarantee the most recent setup instructions. So always check out any plugin’s support for the most current updates.
It sounds like your header dimensions are way too big!
You may like to resize your logo/header image to the recommended dimensions your theme suggests and try uploading it again. To find out the recommended dimensions for your theme, please navigate to Appearance > Customize > Header Image
Your homepage is what displays when you navigate to your domain name eg. myblog.com
You can choose to display a page as your home page or your latest posts. These settings can be found by navigating to Appearance > Customize > Home Page Settings.
If you’re having trouble setting up your theme, I recommend going through the tutorials first as everything is there!
If you go through the tutorials but are still having trouble, you may like to see our dedicated support portal here.
And as another option, we do offer an Install Service in which I will personally set up your theme just like the demo.
Managing Your Site
Enroll in my newbie WP course for free – it’s designed for beginners, starting from scratch and should resolve all of your confusion!
Whereas Pages are meant to be static “one-off” type content such as your about page, contact page, and terms, etc.
First, when you publish any content in WordPress, it will publish those changes live, so anyone can view it online. So you could ‘launch’ after you set your theme up from the tutorials.
Launching to me means when you ready for visitors to come to your blog and hopefully become a fan, but it could mean something different for each person. It’s up to you in which order you like to do things.
1 – Find your niche + blog name
2 – Decide what content you will write about
3 – Select your theme + set up your site
4 – Launch! Tell the world about your blog – start blogging, socializing and growing your audience.
For lots of blogging tips and resources, I recommend reading the HerPaperRoute blog. where I share all sorts of blogging, marketing and money-making tips for bloggers.
