A short video showing you how to use the Adapt WordPress theme and setup the main features. The theme is super easy to use so the guide is only a few minutes short and I don’t go into huge detail on certain things. I expect you’ll know how to create/publish posts and pages as well as add featured images.
Forgive the background noise, forgot I had the fan on!
Hi, this is AJ from WPExplorer.com and this is a quick guide to the Adapt WordPress Theme. I’ll be showing you how to setup your main elements such as the slider, portfolio and blog so it’s much easier for you to get your site up and running with my theme.
First you’ll want to log into WordPress and make sure under Settings -> Reading you have the default options set to “the front page displays” -> “your latest posts” because the theme does not use a static page for the home layout.
Next you’ll want to go to Appearance -> Theme Settings and upload a logo, favicon and customize your homepage headings.
Once you do that you can click on HP Slides to setup your homepage slider. Basically each post is going to be 1 slide for the slider. Here you can see I’ve already got one slide setup and all you need to do is give it a featured image and if you want enter your optional data into these meta boxes.
Blog posts are just like usual, nothing special here. Just add your post content, upload your featured image and publish.
Adding portfolio posts is very simple. These function just like regular posts. Just add your content, select your featured image and you are done. Now the portfolio support sliders as well. So if you want multiple images on a portfolio page all you need to do is upload them to the post so that they become “image attachments”. As you can see on the post any image uploaded is automatically added to the slider. And of course you can re-arrange these by opening the media tab and dragging and dropping them into the order you wish then saving.
Now to create a blog page and portfolio page you’ll want to create regular pages and select the appropriate template. So for example for the blog I would go under the Page Attributes section and select the blog template and for the portfolio I would do the same but select the portfolio template. Once published the template files will automatically show your posts according to the template selected.
