Here is an overview of how to setup a post or page on your website. Please read this full tutorial before you edit/create your first page.

Go to Pages/Posts > Click ‘Add New’ to create a new entry. Or Edit an existing post/page by clicking its title in the list view.

Writing the Post or Page Body

Text formatting and images are all inserted into the post body. You can also add creative media like videos, slideshows and galleries.

Fonts/Text Styles

In the ‘Visual View’ post editor, use the text heading dropdown menu to select a text class (paragraph, H1, H2 etc…). These have been pre-styled to enhance your theme. Do not, try to manually edit style of your text.

Visual View Tab

Use the formatting toolbar and shortcodes to edit your content.

Toolbar Buttons

'Toolbar Toggle' will expand your tool menu. 'Paste As Text' to copy/paste from word doc.

Text View Tab

Use html code to style your content

Featured Image

Every post should have a featured image. This will appear at the top of the post, cropped for the archive thumbnail. Featured Images must be created at the exact dimensions: 1170 x 360 px (Read about Images & Media before you upload: see Image Rules & Image Dimensions Chart).

Categories, Tags & Custom Taxonomies

It is very important that you select the appropriate taxonomies for every post on this website. These are used to filter results on every archive page. Some of these settings you will not see as actual text on your published post however they are used as a filter. Use the taxonomie sitemap to see all options for your post. Keep your taxonomie options organized by only selecting from the available list (you can add locations if required).
